    I hate seeing people with really nice lawns out there with a new MTD. The lawn deserves so much better!

    Okay, bring on the critisism!

    Anything AYP - Crapsmen, Husqvarna, etc.

    (in Memory of C&KLawn) :rolleyes:

    The transmissions they use are poor, I've had two before, the last one the transmission slipped and stopped working in one of the wheels within the the first day. Had family members with them, similar issues.

    I have a 21" snapper hi vac and like it.

    I had a mtd yard man when I started and it held up great for 2 years. It also cut great.

    What about those push bobcats?

    The TroyBilt 569N 21" Rear Bag High Wheel Self-Propelled Mower. i don't like the front wheel self propelled and the bag has a tiny opening, so emptying the bag is a pain in the butt.

    Anything that is 21" is a waist of time.

    The only way to make real money is using the tools that allow you to do the job 3-4 tiems faster than the homeowner. I can't even imagine using a 21" mower or paying any of my guys to use one. The smallest mower i have is a 48".

    I must admit, I do have a lawnboy in the shop just incase we have a job that needs one, but after the first cut we change the gate to allow a 48" mower or they get dropped.

    I've seen a lot of guys with a 21" proline a trimmer and blower and there's their lawn service. No big mowers. The lawns around here don't need big decks. Maybe 36" to 48" at most.
