    Hey Guys,

    Getting new equipment.. What's the scoop on this mower? I've read good things about it in a Consumer Reports magazine.

    I'm a residential house owner with about an acre of grass to cut.

    Anyone know where I can get a deal on a new one in GA or a state close by or what do you guys recommend I buy?

    thanks,

    Trim-man -

    DON'T BUT IT.

    Residential, one acre - buy a nice commercial 48" walk-behind, add a sulky if you want. You'll spend around the same amount (assuming the walk-behind is used, in nice shape) and cut your grass in less time. Could consider a used ZTR but that's overkill for 1 acre. Also would cost you more. The WHITE will not last as long as a decent commercial WB unit, and the commercial cut will be far superior.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey amrupp ,


    Thanks, any particular model # and brands to buy new or used?

    Looking to spend as less as possible of course, but maybe $1,500 to $2,000 should get me a nice unit??

    I like the ZTR, but it is about $3,000 or more.

    Excuse my ignorance, what is a sulky?? One of those things you stand on with wheels behind the WB.

    Thanks,

    I can't quote any specific model #'s, but look in your area for a used Exmark, Toro or Hustler WB. I think most people will have these at or near the top of their list. $2 K should just about do it, may have to spend a little more. But it's WORTH it.

    Sulky, velke, power slide, jungle wheels - they're all sit-on or stand-on attachments to a WB. For one acre, you might not think they're worth it.
