    36" hydro fixed deck. Can access back yards, can handle sulky and handles slopes.

    Hands down
    42" Wright Stander with a 17kaw electric start.
    For a solo guy running med/small props its great.

    Fits thru most gates, quick, less trailer space, handles slopes as good as a w/b(with many hours of experience) great cut.

    When you get bigger (if you want to) it makes a great trim/backup.

    This is my one main mower,

    Hustler super walk behind
    48" floating deck
    23hp kaw with donalson air filter
    Bullrider sulky
    large Accelerator bagger

    I do have a 21" and a 36"belt but they get very little use.

    Gravely 36" mini Z..(I think its a 36...demo'd one last year...can fit just about anywhere and very productive...couldn't get together on a trade in deal so I had to pass on it)...one of these is for sure in my future

    I have owned and used both a z rider and w/b's. I have to say they each have their place but if it came down to ONE machine it would have to be a good w/b with a sulky or velky because IMHO it is 2 machines in one.
