    I have one for mowing places my Walker can't get to. Like around an area by a pool, or patio or a really nasty dirty lawn patch that I would not want to run my Walker into.

    We use them all the time on our smaller gated lawns. Actual average (mowing) time on these lawns is about 10 min. Not a waste of time for us.

    Got a Lawn Boy push 21", use it for one raised area that is up 3 steps, small area, and I would use it anytime I get paid enough to use it instead of the Scag! If customer wants to pay XX extra for the push mower look, I will price accordingly to make the samer per hour as using the Scag, except it will be lower overhead, which makes up for the fact that I have to walk instead of stand.

    They were retired 2 yrs ago. I will not say never again, because if the money is right for the right job I might. But I don't have any intention to use them again.

    I'm with hoss, I used mine the 1st year in business and swore I would never use one again. Eight years later, no push mower. Although I might have to buy one for myself. Put up a retaining wall and am going to need one for the top.

    I have one because the lawns here in CO are .15 acre or less so, there is no point to having a 48" when you would have to take out ththe 21 anyways.

    I have two 21s. I use them all the time (daily). Probably about 10 to 15 hours a week. I dont use it if I dont have to though. I have some small back yards w/small gates. Also, some hilly lawns that pay well that require 21s.
