    Does anyone use this mower? I like the deck size.It beats starting with a 21''.I plan on starting with small accounts and my budget will be small.This looks like a good first mower.

    If you already bought it, I will with hold my comments. If you haven't bought it, don't.

    NO! Hell no! I wouldn't hit the broad side of a barn with one of those! If Toro introduces their 26" to the US don't buy it either (Same mower). For the price of the Metro you would be better of spending a bit more and getting a Quickie 32" (Though I have not used one everyone raves about them). You need horse power to cut grass, the Metro doesn't have it! (If you cut the same lawn everyday with a razor sharp blade it may work)

    If you need more reasons why NOT to buy one of these PM me. I sold mine to some poor soul that will likely struggle with it this season (Poor guy, Im starting to feel bad for him..... NOT!!) I went into hiding after the sale, changed my name and went into witness protection.

    If my only choice was a Metro 26" I would use a scissors!
