    Who has WAMs? What are the brands and size? Did you buy new or used? What would be minimum size job for the big boys? I have always been curious if they can compete with a bunch of Zs and cheap labor.

    I have a friend that uses Wam mowers. He uses Toro's. New they run about $40k. Used you can pick them up for $10k on up. It all depends on how many hours are on them. He uses the 10' and 16' cuts. He has one account that has 265 arces and he uses one
    10' cut Toro and a 60" ZTR(exmark). Cutting 5 days a week 40 hours. The Toros cover alot of ground but suck to use if the ground is damp or wet. They tend to clump up.
