Well, I thought I had my mind made up. I was planning to buy a Walker 42" cut mower with a 20 hp motor. But my 54" cut mower that I use to keep my 5 acre yard cut bit the dust. So ... I am having to rethink the Walker because my yard is bigger than what I think the Walker would do and I do not need to bag my own yard. So I have gone to the two closest dealers and looked at the following mowers: Gravely PM 34Z 15hp Kawasaki motor 36" deck $4899 Offers an optional 4.3 cu ft side grass catcher Gravely PM 44Z 17hp Kawasaki motor 44" deck $5499 Offers an optional 4.3 cu ft side grass catcher Snapper 2500 Pro Series 19 hp Kawasaki motor 48" deck $6699 Offers Ninja Mulching Blade system and Fast-Vac Collection system. Which mower do you like? Please keep in mind that most of the yards I cut are small to medium sized in town yard and half of them have small back gates. I will still be cutting my yard, very large and will have my Snapper 33" tractor that can be used for the back yards of my present customer. I have never mulched my customers yards but could do it during cutting the season and bag the heavy leaf areas.
