    Whether your a solo operator, or running crews, how many mowers are you running?

    I am a solo operator, servicing around twenty properties weekly.

    I have two mowers:

    2002 Toro Z150 w/52" SFS deck, 20hp Kohler (Two Bin Bagger Coming Soon)
    2005 Toro 20055 Super Recycler

    With these two mowers, it not only exceeds my needs, its very easy to preform maintenance on these two units. Servicing yards from four thousand square feet to six acres.

    So... How many mowers are in your operation?

    solo with helper,
    Exmark lazer HP 50"
    Exmark lazer 66"
    Honda 21"

    This is all I need for now but thinking of replacing the 50" with a 48 or36" stander.
