    15-25 lawns a week? Why do you need a second one for that many? What size are the properties on average. Would it be more cost effective to use 2 or 3 walk behinds? If its large open areas would it be a better idea to sell the zero turn you have and get one larger one?

    Why drop 4-5k to buy homeowners mower? Clearly a commercial walk behind will out last those throw away budget brands..

    GASP Those prices are rediculous...Id pay...$3500 tops for up to a 72" why? because there out there....so you have a polished up pos. truth is I can replace or rebuild anything on those mowers. and with the lower cost I can get two of them for when one breaks.....does it blow cold air on the back of your neck as you mow? or hydrate your with cold beer? Then why pay more...hell you as the owner probably will just hire someone else to use it anyways...nothing wrong with that tho. I just dont understand why someone would make that as a business decision. Anyone?
