    I've posted two threads in the past few weeks, hoping to get some information from the "lawn experts???". Nothing, I'm sure very exciting
    to them...just information or recommendations about a few brands of
    mowers from their experience.
    No! I don't have my own lawn service but do enjoy cutting grass
    and take a lot of pride in my work. If someone posts a questions on the
    wrong thread or under the wrong topic then why doesn't someone tell

    First of all, Chill. Just start your own thread if you're having a problem getting responses. Be patient.

    Anyway, I recomment the electric Black and Decker. Some may laugh, but if you have a small lawn, it works as well as or better than gas powered ones. If your lawn is large and you really take pride in it, I'd recommend a Toro with a removable rear clipping catch.

    You were asking about Z's. Find a few dealers in your area and demo them on your property. See which you like better. Any of the real comm'l units will give you good service as a homeowner.

    I appreciate the responses and the information.

    Actually I cut 3 acres at home and another acre and a half across the street. I also have a few people asking if I would start cutting their lawns, again nothing under an acre. I know I'll be buying a Z because of the hours I'll have to cut, mainly late afternoon til dark and the increase in number of

    I realize the choice will be a personal preference but wanted to get some ideas on the best cut quality if there's a difference? Most of the mower manufacturers are all nearby and I've narrowed it down to 3...eXmark, Scag, Ferris...48 to 52 cut. I do anticipate taking this to the next level, hopefully with starting a small service in my area next Spring.

    Thanks Again,
