I am considering getting a 30 inch push mower this season. I currently run 21 inch push mowers. There are properties that I do that a 21 inch is tough to get through between 2 houses and some where I have to tilt the machine sideways to pass. For the ones where I can get a 30 through easily would it be worth the investment ? I would assume it would get me through properties quicker ? It would mean less passes and and least 5 minutes saved on each property and that adds up fast. I don't want to get into any thing bigger then a 30 inch as it will not work for almost any property that I currently have and will keep going in this direction. The guys with the bigger machines can not do these properties. I al do not want to go more then 30 inches for the size and weight factors. Its a big machine requiring possibly a trailer that holds more weight and the time to secure the machine. A 20 inch is easily secured on my trailer with a couple of bungee cord and will not go any where unless the trailer flips over. What are you thoughts opinions and most important what machines are most reliable and makes models to stay away from ? I really hate the thought of buying a lemon. My opinion the old Lawn Boys are hands down the best 21 inch mowers of all time.
