    Im still stuck between the a 32 or 36" WB. Today I cut 17 of my lawns and I measured all of the gates. Two of them were 28" wide, One of them was 34" wide, two of them were 40" wide, one was 49" wide, and one was a double gate that was about 78" wide.
    Now would you go with a 36" of should I get a 32" to be on the safe side? Are gates in your area this different from one another?

    I can fit a 36" wb thru most of my backyard gates. The yards with the tiny gates are so little that a walkbehind wouldnt be a good choice. I just use a 21" on those. There arent too many of those though.

    Most of the gates here are 32-40. We use nothing but 32 and 36 inch wright standers. In and out fast with a great cut ! We also have the big boys !

    Don't know what size the gates are here, many different ones I suppose.

    ...But I have yet to find a gate I couldn't get my 32" through.

    I have a 42 inch ZTR that goes through - barely on some - all the gates I have currently. I thought nothing bigger than a 36 would fit till I measured.

    I have 1 that only a 21" will go though, and then about 5 that a 36" will go though. The rest I can do with my 42" Walker or my 52" Grasshopper.
