We have a SCAG SWZU 48"WB with bagger, a SCAG SWZU 48"WB w/advantage deck and mulch system, a SCAG 60" Turf Tiger, and a MTD 21" push mower (homeowners special). We hardly ever have both WB's and the rider in the trailer at the same time. We usually only run the mulcher from late spring to late summer. Before and after that time it just sits in the garage. Currently, we have three accounts that require the use of the 21" push mower due to gate width restrictions. Both gates are 42" width gates. I'm thinking of selling the 48" mulcher and purchasing a 36" WB. So a few questions.... (1) How much should I expect to sell my mower for? I have no idea how many hours are on it cause I don't have an hourmeter on it. Its a 2002 w/17HP kawi. Everything runs well with it. We keep up with our maintenance. Only problem we had was a hydro pump failure a few years (2?) back. Of course the body has the typical scratches and dents on it. (2) Will a 36" mower (I'm looking at the SCAG) fit through a 36" gate or do I need to go with a 32" deck to fit through the 36" gate. (3) I would like to have the new mower set up for mulching b/c it would decrease the time to cut the gated yards. Basically I can cut in any direction without throwing clippings into a pool, onto a fence, or into a mulch bed. So, a 36" mulcher...what size engine should I have in place? According to SCAG website only two engine sizes are available for 36" mowers...15HP kohler and 16HP kawi. Now, since I'm going to be mulching in all seasons should I drop to the 32" mower which has a 15HP kawi...basically its the same as the kohler but 4" less of cutting. FYI: I'm leaning towards a gear driven mower to save on cost and maintenance since this mower is not going to be used that much (~1.5hr/wk). I believe we can get away with it cause the gated yards are fairly flat and not very large (~2,000sf each). Now, if I decide to go with a hydro the only combination is 16 kawi with 36" cut..... Well, if you read this lengthly post...thank you.... Opinions, comments, suggestions?
