This is only my 2nd post and I'm still a bit nervous being the n00b amongst so many professionals. I currently mow two lawns (I'll save the reasons for later) and am looking to start hitting the streets hard next summer getting anywhere from 10 to 20 more customers and want to start getting equipment soon. Here goes... Recently I started looking into getting a ZTR mower. Started at Home Depot and started budgeting based on a 3000 dollar mower. After visiting a local dealership, I realized that the Cub Cadet I was eyeing was not going to cut it. The dealership I went to specialized in Kubota and John Deere and he had me all but signing the papers for the Kubota. I then started looking around elsewhere hoping I could find a different ZTR commercial grade for under the 6400 the Kubota was going to cost me. Looked at Hustler and Dixon without being impressed. Next, after reading about everyone's enjoyment of Exmark products on this board, I went to check out the dealer who sold them and was blown away with what I found. Here's the catch, Although the ZTR was less than the Kubota, the salesman (who was INCREDIBLY helpful with advice and information) suggested I look at the walk behind mowers. Finally, my question....I'm looking at getting a Walk Behind Exmark mower. I forget the model number and what not, but more than likely the 44" deck so it still fits on my current trailer. Is there any reason I should not get this, and if so, what other brands should I be looking for? Thanks for any help, I've got the Exmark guy coming out for a demo on Thursday, so depending how that goes and the feedback I get from other posters here, I'll probably be getting one in the next week or so.
