I'm considering getting a walk behind, but I'm not sure if it fits my needs or not. I currently have 2 walkers and a 52" grasshopper and a couple push mowers. I was thinking that I could use a walkbehind on the yards when the big mowers would mud it up if its wet or/and use it on some of the yards getting ruts from cutting so often with the heavier mowers. Do the walkbehinds cut wet grass very well? And would it be worth the additional cost to avoid leaving ruts on most of my weekly's (most of mine are every 2 wks or 10 days)? Are they any faster? The dealers I have around here are Ferris, John Deere, and Toro. I haven't priced any but I was thinking probably under $2500. Any input from people with riders and walkbehinds is greatly appreciated.
