ok...im kinda new to the lawncare...i have a 52inch dane and i want a 36inch walk behind for the hills that get torn up buy the dane and for gated areas....what do you all think a good 36inch mower is that is nice to use and what should the cost be?....this site has helped me lots ...but i sure hope you all are still comming on in the summer when i really need answers quik...thankyou all for all the great answers.
 
A 32&quot; would better suit your needs. A new<br>Toro/eXmark hybred with a 10.5 hp briggs<br>would be my choice if in needed a mower to<br>get thru gates.<p>You should be able to buy that unit for less<br>than $2K new. Don't spend the extra money on<br>the Kohler engine for you are never going to <br>put much hours on that small of a machine.

That really is good advise.<p>I've had quite a few properties that a 32&quot; could get in and a 36&quot; was too big.

Taking the advise on a 32&quot; instead of a 36&quot; a step further, depending on how few gated areas you are dealing with - a commercial 21&quot; self-propelled Honda would be cheapest of all for you and may just do the trick. But assuming you've already got a 21&quot; mower then check your gates because there aren't too many that can't take a 36&quot; (on our list anyway). If the majority are too small...go with 32&quot;, stick with 21&quot;, or gradually replace these type lawns with ones that will accomodate the type machine you really want to be using day in and day out.<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>

I would have to say that cutntrim is dead on. I can usualy get a 36 into the back yards and those that you cant youll have to use a 21. Most of the dealers around me say they can count on one hand the # of 32 they have sold ever. I would also agree on the honda 21

Scottslawn,<br>I have a Great Dane 52&quot;. How do you like yours? Where are you located and do you see many people using Danes in your area?<br>Also, I don't have a walk behind, but I have looked at some. The best I have seen is the Toro with the T-Bar.<br>
