    I am going on my second season as an owner/operator. Last season I used a Bunton 48" fixed deck gear drive walk behind. That is going to be my backup. I have more customers lined up already for this season. I also just dropped a nice chunk of change on a quarter page ad in the yellow pages. My customer base will grower!! I need to know with what brand I should build my empire with! :cool: Thanks for your help! :D

    You are not even in the ball park if you do not consider John Deere. I will mow and trim circles around you with my JD set up.

    He may have left some mowers out for several reasons.

    A.the poll will only post like 5 things, and those are his top pics.

    B. there may be no or bad dealers for those brand's mowers around him.


    I voted Exmark, they seem to overall be an excellent mower.
