    I know that commercial lawn mowers are way more dependable than home owner models. The thing is though, I only cut about 15 hours a week with the 21 inch lawn mower and only plan to do this while I continue through university ( four years). Do I realistically need to spend the extra 600 on a commercial 21 inch, especially when I probably will get a 36 inch walk behind next year? What exactly will that 600 get me other than dependability too?

    if your going to get a 36" next year, just use your 21" and buy a back up. then sell them to some home owner next year and get a few bucks out of them. :D thats what i'd do.

    I would say go with a home owner version for your planned usage.
