just wondering if murray is a good brand and if it will work for commercial use?
Murray is one of the best brands out there. And a little known fact about Murray is that their mowers require no oil. Yep, no oil! Saves lots of $$ that other guys have to spend, putting your operation on top.
Definatively, No. Stick with the stronger brands and don't be duped by a commercial tag on anything that can be bought at Sears, Home Depot, Target, Walmart etc. Go to a good repuatable lawn shop and pick out something good. Be prepared, it won't be cheap. A good highend 21 inch self propelled push mower commercial will run 800 - 1000 bucks to give you an idea of price.
everyone knows that murray is top of the line. it's way better than dixie chopper, hustler, etc. why would you ask such a stupid question?
actually if your just starting and that's all you can afford --- use it till you get enough money and enough clients to need a commercial mower. just my opinion.
yeah if i owned anything made buy murry i wouldn't waiste my money buy putting oil in it eather. The oil would be worth more then the mower to me.
blandl--murray mowers are not generally made to, nor would they perform to commercial mowing specifications/expectations.
they have an anticipated mowing life expectancy and that isn't long as compared to a heavy commercial made unit.
I think your question is a valid question.
Murray, owned by Senyang Hejin Holding Company (a Chinese company), filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November of this year. They owe Briggs and Stratton $40 MILLION !!! The Murray product line is big with mass retailers such as WalMart.....not commercial users.
As I stated in your other thread...buy comm'l grade equipment if at all possible. Don't spend the same money over and over again. No, murray is not a comm'l grade mower. It may cut pretty good and get you started, but it will NOT hold up to comm'l work.
I Agree. A Residential Mower Just Can't Take The The Abuse Day In And Day Out That A Commercial Mower Can.
