    Well, I cut 20 lawns a week, it takes me 8hrs to do them all. I am looking at buying a Gravley 34Z because I like how it is zero turn and fits through a standard 3 foot gate, EXECPT that it doesnt offer the Lawn Striping Kit.

    Does anyone know of a ZeroTurn mower that fits through a standard gate, and offer a Striper Kit. Also, I would like it to be under 4k. Thank You!

    Dont waste your money on a 34Z, its way to much money for such a small cutting machine. Get a 36 inch wb.

    48 inch wb doesnt cost a lot, if you can use it on your lawns buy that unstead of the 34Z

    8 hours to cut 20 YARDS? What ever you have must be the perfect set up. Don't change a thing

    to be honest, the salesman tired selling me a 36" w/b Gravley, i dont remember the model number but i belive it was either 1600 or 2600, im going back tommarow so ill get more info on it.. the main reason i wanted a 34z instead of the w/b that he was trying to sell me was because i thought i could cut faster with the 34z sense i dont have to walk.

    also, 8hrs for 20yards, yeah but then again 15 are relativly small yards. and reason i want to get something bigger and better then my small cub cadets is because 15k flyers go out on may 12th so i will prolly get a few more customers (hopefully 20more or so)

    please leave some input, thanks

    You don't have to walk with a walkbehind. Use a Velke. Also,pay the extra for the hydro. It will be money well spent.
