    I think for that same money you could get a 48" or even a 36" walk behind and throw a sulky on it. You will save massive amounts of time!!!
    A heavily used commercial walk behind will last longer than the cub cadet tractor.

    Seriously, anyone on here will tell you the same thing. You're more or less getting a pass based on your age, but honestly you'll have a better cut quality, a more versatile machine, and faster machine for the same amount of money.

    In fact you don't need the sulky right away, you were cutting with push mowers before, even walking will be a massive difference in speed.

    It looks decent.. but.. be very learey. Look at the online reviews, they have their.problems, with bolts vibrating out and other things. It.is also.a homeowner model, you might want.to.look.into a professional or heavier duty.mower... idk.if.your a fan of green. But my JD Gt275 hasnt wronged me yet.and it.probably.got.close.to.500 hours on it. If you.could.find a gt.model that will do you good, the run anywhere from $1300-$2000, they have the heavier transmission so will last longer than others!

    Word of advice. DON'T buy that one. Stay AWAY from Kohler's Courage line. Their Command (Pro) series engines are awesome but the Courage line is notorious for breaking down. In my opinion Kawasaki has the best engines with Kohler at a close second. Also another thing to consider with Tractor vs. ZTR/Walk Behind is the Blade Tip speeds. The pro engines give you a much higher tip speed which means a faster, better cut. If you do go with a tractor, though I would recommend a upper grade older John Deere. Like Whittaker said GT's were good models.

    I wouldn't recommend a commercial walk behind for a 14 year old. Sorry, kid.
