    I tell them that I am very strong and I can push my 48 as well as any 11 year old can push a 21 in. crapsman.

    my reply doesn't usually work but I have fun with it anyway.

    i have several that prefer 21" , or have small gates. I figure the cost of operating a 21 is less and dont mind as long as its no more than an hour or 2 a day. really tho they should pay extra unless its a small lawn. As my johndeereSB21 went down last month I have demoed a Ariens21 with swivel wheels they also have a commercial model GravelySCH21 ; anyway still cant decide rather their worth it . I mowed one fairly large lawn in very short time cross hatching even very easy to turn usually but it does bounce a bit more in holes (maybe longer distance between front and back wheels?) My feet felt much better tho than usual and i did have to schedule each time all my 21s at the same time becuz it was a demo. They also seemed faster , set it on high speed where i culd and reallly got a fast walking workout . But at 600 for homeowner ariens and 825 for gravely21 seems high especially when no BBc. the gravely does have a 2yr warranty tho. these are the dealers closeout for this yr , just noticed gravely had a big price increase.
