    for the 21 the best mower we have used is the honda hrc216 hydro.we have really liked the hustler 37 walk behind that we have used for two seasons now. as for the bigger machines , our first rider was a mtd pro mz54.mechanicaly it has been excellent .we used a hustler z60 for 1 week,a lazer z for 2 weeks and did a demo of a grasshopper 60 z. best macine we ever used is our current kubota zd60.has 2 years use so far .we wont buy another rider without a diesl engine.

    A 36" is a nice compromise of them all. You can get into gates and yet it is still more productive than the 21"....just a thought.

    For me it would be:

    21 - Honda
    36 - Exmark Metro
    larger would be either Exmark or Grass Hopper.

    There are other good machines out there, but these are what I have good dealers for. Ted

    You could probably get a 21 and 36 for the price of a 48.

    21" honda hrc 216
    36" take your exmark or toro
    larger rider exmark or walker. Maybe Kubota if you need a very large machine.
