Hi Ya'll Just found this place..Great Site!! Been Mowing rental properties for several years. Using your standard tractors/Mowers, usually a 42 in cut because of quantity & proximity of trees. Been wanting to upgrade to a Zero-Turn and have decided on Hustler. Have been shopping for that 'Off-Season Deal' for months and I found it today on a 36 mini F.T with the 15 hp Kohler (around $1000 off). My question is...Am I Screwing myself with the small deck size? I really couldn't use anything much larger than a 42' if I wanted to, but is there that much 'Cutting Time' difference between the 36' and the next larger size? considering the Great deal I am getting on this 36. Or should I spend the $1500 more and get the 44? Does that 36 really "Eat Grass" that much faster than a conventional 'Garden tractor 42''? Sorry..New to Zero-Turns so Help! mtfork Take Care All!
