Last year was my first year in business and all of my equipment is going to be new this year I dont want to be a scrub anymore. I am going to be servicing at least 50 accounts this year and the lots sizes are all very small (a lot are 5000- 6000 square feet). I don't want to spend $1000-1300 on each commercial 21 because I want to wait till exmark comes out with the metro 26. So remember this mower arent going to be used in a couple of months of consider that when you give advice. I am going to buy a Viking 36 and I need a couple of backup 21's. This is my problem: I dont like the personal pace, or sens-a-speed. I want something fast. 5 mph would be the best. I want something in the $300-400 range. Well the toros that are out now without personal pace top speed is only 3 mph. This is the same with the lawn boy, 3 mph top speed. The toro's with personal pace top speed is 4.8 and I think the lawn boy with sens-a-speed top speed is 4. Here is my questions is there a way to replace the handle so I can have a cheap mower with a high top speed. Or is there another brands that have a cheap mower, that goes faster then 3 mph? Please post some suggestions, or tell me if you think 3 mps is fast enough.
