    I currently use a Home Depot, John Deere 16 hp 42in rider. I don't have any complaints , but it's 5 years old and I was looking for something else.? I wouldn't mind a Zero turning radius.

    Please give me your suggestions....:cool2:

    Please clue me in. What is 20,000 sq feet equal to in acres. Never heard of anyone listing grass in sq feet before. :hammerhead:

    a half acre is 21,700 something. A full acre is 43,560

    It seems to me like a waste of money to buy a zero turn for 1/2 acre, unless you are planning on doing some side work with it to make it pay for itself.

    I think i'd go with a good walk behind if you are looking for the same commercial quality of cut.

    If you're lookin for stripes, then get a kit for your rider.

    Depends on the money you want to spend but for the money Country Clipper makes a neat little machine

    Every manufacturer makes a "neat little machine" for the person needing to mow this amount of property. A prime example of this is the Toro timecutter. Gravely also has a nice small unit on the market. It just comes down to price and service
