    Have you thought about how much fuel you will be using per hour with three engines running? Have you considered the maintenance? Have you thought about getting all the heights exactly the same, tire pressure etc?
    My brother in law has one for his own lawn, it works on his lawn but I would not pay him to cut my grass and leave it looking the way he does. He's also bent the hitch a few times on "bad" corners.

    That mower in the first link, is CRAP, the one I used was MUCH more solidly built, but I havent a clue who made it. all I know is it was red, and had about an 8 foot cut, really nice for football fields.

    junk. Toro or jacabson pull behinds are the best. I wouldn't buy a JD a tractor. Save your money buy a 48" walkbehind. Those gas power tow behind units still don't cut very well. Unless its a dixie chopper pup.
