    So i have this river front co mmunity to mow. About 9 or 10 yards. In front of the yards is a road, then a strip on yard again then the river. All nicely done up. Nothing super fancy. Just nice grass.
    1/4 to 1/2 all of them. Trees etc.....
    2 or 3 evenings of mowing is all I wanna do. I have a day job.
    I'm not looking to break land speed records. Some are square. Some are shapely..... Some have an incline slightly.

    Which 44 or 48" zero turn mower would I wanna get. Res or comm?
    I doubt I need something like an Exmark. Would a box store variety work?

    WOuld they be durable for what I wanna do?

    I'd like to stay under 4500.00 if possible

    Glad to hear options.

    Maybe someone has a good used one they wanna go bigger!!!

    Thanks guys big help

    I say, do it full time, or dont do it at all. I dont cut, but I have many friends who do, and unfortunely, guys that do it on the side, kill the industry, and if they dont know what they are doing, kill the standards......sorry.

    How do they kill the industry? (or the standards?)
