Well...I am a full time firefighter in central florida, and have had my small lawn business going for about a year. It's been growing and I have been getting busier and busier. I need to upgrade mowers. Right now I am using a 36" Bunton walkbehind, it's great for getting through gates into back yards and stuff, but i'm getting into bigger nicer accounts and I need something a little better...still keeping the bunton as a back up though, which I dont think is a bad idea. So here is the question...I need something bigger, badder, better, more....keeping in mind that I only mow several days a week (on my days off from the FD), should I go ahead and take the leap and get something like an Exmark or a Gravely and dump the 8 or 9 grand, or do you think I should spend about 3 grand and get a nice 50" Cub from home depot? The Cubs seem decent at a decent price...so thats why I'm considering it. Cost is the main issue for me right now...I dont make **** at the FD and the lawn business is just helping me get through at this point..............ANY INPUT??????? I'm also considering just getting a used mower, but you know how that goes...never know what it's been though and what-not. Thanks!
