    Just picked up our first commercial mower yesterday. Mower is in good shape and should be a lot of fun to play around with. This is definitely a much more serious mower than what we are use to. My question for you guys out there is, what sort of advice can you give us for the future as far as, maintenance of a walkbehind or maintenance of the exmark series, tricks for obtaining the best possible mow with a walkbehind and other general tips we should be aware of. Thanks guys.

    Well you bought one of the those reliable walkbehind mowers ever. My 32" metro is 10 years old. 1 set of belts, 2 sets of tires and 4 sets of blades since I have had it. Just change the oil every 50 hours and grease it every day when you use it.

    keep the blades sharp so the lawn looks nicer and so there isnt so much strain on the mower
