I currently have 3 properties and planning to upgrade my mower this year. I may add a few more properties however I have a full time job and this is just side line work so no more than 5 to 8 properties, largest property is 1 acre most about .5. Currently looking at a mini fastrak (I know it is not commercial) or a good walk behind. My questions is how good is a walk behind (gear drive) something like scag or hustler with a velke attached. Are they pretty easy to turn and use, and are they pretty fast. I just do not need to spend a lot of money to get started. Looking around 3500 to 4000 dollars. I would appreciate any honest advise I could get, because dealers tend to want to over sell you stuff that I think that I do not need.
