    You guys here about this one? Only 2000$, starting out with all 5 star reviews over the last year. I want one because I have 10 customers that i can do in an hour or less each with a push mower, that each have a fence with a small gate. The new yard machine is claiming you can go through most gates with it, so maybe i could do all 10 of those yards in 1 day with the yard machine.

    At that price point I would lean towards a commercial walk behind or a used gravely compact pro. I picked up a compact pro this year for cheap. Added wider tires and it works well for gated areas and narrow areas of a cemetery.

    Well i usually take care of 2-4 yards a day 9am to 4pm with a push mower, and then work delivery 5-10pm. As my business starts i want to have the best 21 inch push mower and best 34 inch zero turn, preferabbly

    Curious, what size tires did you add?

    20x10-10 on stock rims. I added a few washers to the studs to clear the fuel tank mount. Huge improvement.

    Who cares if it lasts
    If you get two seasons out of it that’s $1000
    A season
    An employee pushing a mower can cost you more than that in a a couple weeks easy

    Just about anything you can do to replace an employee, economically is worth it.
