Thanks,

    Hi I am 15 and just bought my first mower it is a 48" snapper walkbehind i would suggest getting at least that big because it goes much faster than when I was 10yrs old using a 21" I also suggest buying a hydro I tried the belt drive before and I do not much like them because they slip in the wet. If you have a lot of gated lawns and dont have that many lawns I would highly suggest buying a 36" because I have to use a 21" to get in gated areas. Also try to shop naround for a used one from a reputable company such as the the one you are working for. Good luck - chris:blob3:
