I am examining this industry, whereas I have had a passion for lawn care for years and currently use Lawn-Boy self-propelled to service a very small client base. I wish to replace my current Lawn-Boy with a 32 inch, ideally due to the curves. 25 degree inclines and unlevel nature of my area. Four strokes are challenged over 15 degrees, therefore do require overhead oil pump on cam. Wide decks are not at all favorable and most clients refuse such contractors. 21 inch is not nearly enough, but 32 inch would suffice to step up. I have spent hours studying every manufacturer I can review. The eXmark Metro 32" is nice, but many say to go with the Hydro, but then that exceeds 36". The Bradley RedHawk 32" with the 15 HP Kohler Engine is another option. 32'' Sarlo is probably like the Redhawk, only different paint? Then there is the 34" Ariens Wide Area Walk 1034 that seems to be very popular, the one I am currently leaning in favor of. LISTED HERE. The factors I am restrained by is the client base. Some wants bagging, some wants mulching. Therefore the mower needs to adjust for both options IF possible. Would like to have Sulky option, but not maybe favorable in some client lawns due to ravines and other ground based obstacles. I hope I can get some professional feedback from those who are veteran to this industry, whereas I am not such a person. Thank You!
