    I can think of three or four so called "commercial" mowers that I've been told to avoid. Any brands for "professional use" that guys/gals should stay away from? rscvp Thanks!:usflag:

    Are we talking walk behinds, wide area walks or ZTRs here.

    There are some companies with good and not so good equipment in different categories.

    my snapper 48" was awesome ... liked it better than my new turboforce 48. i kind of have to disagree. :)

    I disagree as well...my Snapper is not even a commercial unit and it cuts like a dream.

    How much did you pay for that Snapper commercial?

    well, I wouldn't entirely put down equipment that is commercial yet people look the other way...obviously some brands are built better than others...

    Just look for the equipment to suit your needs...and there's a reason why Snapper advertises it's HI Vac system and not it's ability to hack down overgrown brush (but then again, you don't know)
