    im really wanting to get a new mower, should i go with ride on or w/b? right now i have a Lesco 48" W/B Belt Driven... i need something bigger but i dont know what to get. I would like to stick with Lesco, just because of local service. i have 1 comm. account (a church) and it takes about 2 1/2 hours w/ 2 48" W/B, that includes mowing,trimming,edging and picking up all the litter. im looking to put in bids for just about everyplace i can.... but would obviously need a mower upgrade, i think the lescos are running around 8K for a 72" & 7K for a 60". are there some other mowers out there that wont kill my budget? should i look at used? i just bought a 06' 2500HD 4X4 w/ V8 (couldnt get a dump or a diesel, seemings my payments are already gonna be 500 a month) should i invest in a new mower? or new piece of equip. aerater or slitseeded etc..

    If your happy with the Lesco mowers you own why not get their rider.I would go with the 60".
