I am looking into getting a mower to start with I have 4 21" so I'm looking to go bigger. I have been finding all types of deals I just cant find out what size i should go with. I'm currently looking at 36" 48" and 52" walkbehinds. At the moment I found a ekmark 2001 36" for $800 and a lesco 48" hydro 2004 for $1000 and a 1999 ferris 52" with a brand new echo blower for $800. What would you guys go with? I looked around at several properties in the area, it would be about 40% have gates and 60% dont have them. So thats why my decision is so tough because I'm not sure if its worth having the 36" just for the gates. i feel like if its my main mower its going to slow down productivity. What do you guys think??????
