    I am starting a lawn care business and I am wondering if anyone can give me advice on push mowers. This will be a small business for now and I may pick up a good used one if it is a reliable one. Let me know what you think. thanks,

    Look into the snapper commercial series. They're around 800. If that is to much I have had good luck with my Toro Personal pace.

    i'd look into a Toro with a sulky. It dose the job of a rider almost. its a great started mower.

    x2 on the snapper. The year before I bought my first walkbehind. My snapper was cutting 12-18 yards a week. Almost all had some type of hill. They are nothing like they were, but for the money they are excellent mowers

    I dont have a push mower on the trailer. I use a 48 and 66. The 48 is the smallest mower I would buy for commercial cutting.

    I have a push mower but it never gets used, I really don't know why I bother hauling it around.
