I have a bunch of mowing accounts that I can do in a little less than 2 days. I have a Scag belt drive 48 which is great and work solo. Things go fine when weather is good but I often get behind whenever it rains or something else gets in the way. I'm considering hiring someone and getting a second mower, or just getting a bigger hydro mower like a 60 inch Scag to make ME more productive. Does it really make that much difference? Most of my places have enough room for a 60inch but may be pretty bumpy if using a velky and going fast. Plus, does the quality of cut go down when you can go faster on a hydro? With the belt drive, if I speed way up there are often grass stands that don't get cut.
