    After mowing for 10 years, I know what kind of mower I want after using a semi-commercial Hustler. My mower is great except that thick grass easily clogs the flow of grass out of the deck due to a shallow low capacity deck. I am not familiar with what products are out there like you guys are, so can you tell me what mower fits this criteria:

    1) 34" (some 36" are really 34) A full 36 makes it hard to into small spaces
    2) Fully OR partially commercial (its nice when your mower weighs 50% less and the parts cost 50% less because it is not fully commercial)
    3) sitting or standing
    4) DEEP capacity deck (unlike some resi/com models that have shallow deck)
    5) Deck is HANGING by chains, not rigidly assembled (this helps when you hit something heavy..... the deck simply moves upwards to avoid sudden jolt, saving the spindle from damage)
    6) Proven track record of reliability

    Don't know what your budget is, but you may want to take a look at quick mowers. You can see one in action on this you tube site. - Don
