    I need some feedback! THANK SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME......

    This is the dilemma. I do residential lawn cutting. Some of this accounts are pretty big. This year I need to buy another mower so now I have an opportunity to buy a Hydro 52" walk behind (comes with a sulky)or a 52" rider(sitting on it). The two are brand new...

    The rider is bigger, probably faster and of course more expensive; I would say about $4000 more than the walk behind even though made by the same manufacturer.

    Questions:
    1)Does a rider really justify the extra cost for what it can do? If so why?

    2) What are the advantages and disadvantages between a rider and a hydro walk behind? (comes with sulky so no walking).

    2)What can you tell me about maintenance cost between the two?

    3)Which one do you think will be braking down more frequently? (under same use conditions and operator)

    3)Do you feel that a rider is really cutting down on fatigue of the
    operator?


    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
    A LOT BLESSINGS THIS SEASON.............
