    If you are not limited by narrow gates I would really suggest a 36" such as the Quick 36. Exmark, Toro, Scag, Hustler, etc. all make great w/b mowers. the extra 4" of deck doesn't alot more and you will make up for it in increased productivity.

    Scag is probably the most reliable but it is going to be heavy to get into a van so maybe you might go with a lighter unit. Maybe something like the Billygoat or some of the units in that price range. Those will do just fine for the small number of accounts you have.

    Check out the Gravely ProG32 w/13hp Kawasaki engine. We purchased a new one and have been real pleased with it. Easy deck adjustment & pulls the rider with ease on a sulky. It is built solid.

    There's a Ferris 32" walk behind on ebay with low hours for a good price, and it's in NY too...

    I was going to buy it but decided not to spend the money at this point.

    Well it looks like it's not on there anymore. Perhaps he sold it locally, he told me he would end the auction early if he did.
