    Can anybody give me some insight on buying a commercial mower. I will be mowing mostly residential Brand, Size, Walkbehind or Rider and any other considerations i should take :confused:

    first of all, what type of mower do you want? how much do you want to spend on a mower, and how many hours to you think you would use it for?? as far as deck size, consider homes with fences and gates, large mowers will not fit, plus if your going to be doing small lawns a ztr might not be the best choice, i run no smaller then a 48/52/ but thats because the lawns i service justify it!!!! good luck to you......
