    As u may know I have 2 yards I cut my own which is 2 acres with not many trees about 5 small ones and land is mostly flat. Took me 2 hrs just to cut the yard with my 48" craftsman lawn tractor.

    The 2nd yard is a daycare business of my mother in laws about 1.5 acres that is 2 seperate yards. One yard only thing i have to cut around is the metal gym building, the daycare itself is not that bad either, but the play ground yard has one section that I can t get anything larger than a 48" mower in that part of the fence, but likely could use a push mower for that part cause its only about 30'x15' with a sand box, porch and a covered area for teachers so the area to actually cut is only say 15'x5' take me about 2 hours to cut the yard and do the weed eating.

    Id like something quicker maybe an hour range but i dont want to spend 4500 on a new mower what options do i have thanks.

    He also said that he needs 48". Also, if you can't handle being insulted once-in-a-while, maybe you should lock yourself up in a room with no communication to the outside world.
