    I'm starting out this year with 15-20 residential accounts. I have a 36" Bunton Wlak-Behind for back up. Wanting to buy another walk behind before season starts. What do you guys recommend with a 2500.00 budget?

    What size are you looking to get? New or used?

    How good of shape is the bunton? How big are the properties? What kind of growth are you expecting this year?

    The Bunton is in OK shape.. I plan on buying used, 32",36", or even 48" Growth will be no more than 25 accounts.

    A good used 48" will do wonders. If you can get a velkie. Everyone will give you a different brand that they think is best. A lot of it comes down to personal taste. Exmark has been good to us!

    You can get a good used 52" it will save time when doing bigger jobs

    I really liked the Exmark Zero Turn that I've used before, but its out of my price range. I would love to get a Toro T-Bar but they are hard to find used in my area.

    I use an Exmark Metro 36" with 15 hoarse Kawasaki Kai engine and Ecs. Great machine for the amount of lawns I do. Not a single problem yet.

    we love the 52" Exmark. That things kicks some serious grass when it comes to production.
