this year is my first year getting into lawn maintenace. I have a home edition ZTR that is a 16hp honda engine and a 44 inch cut. Even though I only have 4 accounts at the moment(growing weekly),I am starting to see why most people dont have home editions for this type of work. there just isnt enough power for the hills and ditches, the ride is a very bumpy/uncomfortable ride, and its not nearly as fast as it could be.(6mph) I will stick with this one for the rest of the year but im thinking of investing in the next level. I dont have the money for a beasty scag lol. a 48inch cut is the bigger my trailer can handle. What is a good mower, cheaper then scags, faster then 6mph, stronger then 16hp, and a comfortable ride?
