    I just started looking into used equipment as well, and what i have learned from the feedback i got is, is there a good delaer close to you that can fix/ service it. Abd still put you on a mower. Reason for that is if your mower breaks down in the middle of the season you cant afford to wait 3 weeks fof it to be fixed. The grass aint gonna stop growing and you will loose custoners very quickly. I hope this helped.

    Good luck with buying a new mower!

    40 mph? lets talk about the math there. The fastest running human alive right now can run the 100 meters in 9.58 seconds. That comes out to 23.355 mph. You think you have a walk behind that can go nearly 2x faster than the quickest olympic runner? Even the fastest olympic runners top out between 27-40 mph, and that is a peak they usually only hit for a spit second or two, not a speed they maintain. I'm willing to bet my company against yours you not going to be walking behind a mower at 40 mph
