    Half of these accounts are hilly..the rest are flat...ALL have lots of curbs and tights spots. I'm debating equip. choices to fit a 4 man crew.
    I'm thinking (1)60" ztr...(1)32" wb and possibly a 52" hydro walk

    What would you use on these places?
    Disregard winter time pics....before my time

    Also, if you don't have them yet, get chute blocker(s) for all mowers. :weightlifter:

    If I had the chance to pick anything I wanted for equipment I would use

    2 - 60" zrt
    1 - 48" or 52" wb
    1 - 36" wb
    4 - String trimmers
    and atleast 2 backpack blowers.

    I might even stop by the local 7-11 and grab a mexican or 2 to start the trimming while my crew mowed.

    Nobody mentioned 21"...that's a good thing !
    I'm counting on my 32's to cover all the tight spots. If I thought 36's would do the same, I'd use them....Might still use Quick 36's in place of 32's.

    Budget won't allow for a second 60"
    I'll prolly use a floating 52" hydro WB.....can anyone justify spending $$ on a SMALL a 34" Dixie Chopper or 36" Mini Z...etc. ??

    O come on can you be that lazy to use a 42'' or 48'' zero turn? Personally i think it is faster to use a w/b in those small places. when i see a small ztr like that i think homeowner or the stuff you can find at home depot or lowes (junk) sorry if i offend anyone who buys their equipment there but im a strong believer in you get what you pay for, you buy homeowner equipment it will act like homeowner equipment and work great 1 hour a week 28 weeks a year, if you buy commercial it will work like or mexican freinds 50+ hours a week 28 weeks a year then you store it. for next year.
