    I posted thiw question earlier and no one really answered besides maybe selling one 44 WB.

    Situation: I have 3 z 52 decks.
    I have 3 Wb with 44 decks.

    Wanted to upgrade etc. Best to go with a small 44z or go with another 44wb. We use these cuz its in b/t our 21'wb and 52 Z's. Some of our clients don't like such "big" machines our there yard. Therefore we run with the 44 wb and they love that. All machines are Toro if that makes a difference.

    I am looking at selling a 44 wb. jvm81@earthlink.net

    If the wb is what is keeping you in business with those customers, go with it. Otherwise, Z . . .hands down.

    What are you looking to get that you didn't from your other post? Several people responded to that. Do you have a use for a 44" Z? Would it be worth the extra money to get a Z over a walkbehind?

    If the customer doesnt want a 52'' Z on the property then I dont think they will realize the 8'' difference in a 44''Z. I would stick with the walkbehind and if you dont all ready use a velky then look to adding one to be faster.

    Thanks for the reply guys. Just getting an opinion I guess. People all want different things but I have slowly changed there thinking over some by using a 52 Z but others are still hard to change.
