    After using my father's 40" Toro for the past year I finally got my own commercial mower. I got a 32" Toro t-bar with a 12.5 Kohler. I know it's not much, but it's better than my homeowner 21" Toro. Ran her for the first time last weekend. On the 2nd lawn the blade belt fell off :realmad:! After an hour I finally realized how to fix it (about 2 minutes worth of work).

    None the less, I'm pumped. I almost cut my cut time in half!

    So, what was everyone else's 1st 'real' mower?

    I've only got 12 lawns right now. 3 of them have very narrow gates. Anything larger than a 32 wouldn't fit. It's a prefect mower for me right now. I couldn't be happier. Plus, I only paid $300 for it.
