    How big of a deck are you looking for. A compact Toro, exmark or scag may be the ticket!

    Regardless of what mower you ultimatally purchace, make sure you have a reputable dealer that will take care of you should your machine ever let you down. You may spend a few extra bucks in the beginning, but it will make up for it down the road when your dealer gets you back up and running the next day when you have a problem.

    Btw, be careful with the lesco's :nono: ... many lesco dealers do not have a mechanic on site, so if your machine ever breaks down, you better get ready for a hike to the next closest lesco store.
