    We've just started a small business for my boys to learn some good hard work! Have limited budget but need a couple of mowers. Is it worth buying used? Is Honda, Toro, Snapper or exmark better? Should I stick with a couple of 21" or get one 32". Need some input. Don't have a lot to spend, but hate to regret the purchase later.

    i can only comment on the exmark, because i have not tried the others. i would look for a used 36" exmark. should be able to get one reasonable.put one on the mower and one on the trimmer

    I've used everything on the market and there are two product out:clapping: there-Exmark and Stihl. I've had three Exmarks with Kawasaki's and have never had a problem. There are a lot of pros and cons to ZTR versus walk-behind so decide what's best for you based on your properties.
