    I plan on saving up money to buy a commercial WB and turn my part time business into a more full time business for next season. My question is this, I plan on the majority of my accounts to be residential properties as small as just under 1/2 acre and as big as 1.5 acres. My targeted areas are not gated properties so that will not be a factor. My question is should I look for a WB in the 48" 52" range or the 36" range. I will be shopping for used and the amount of money I will be spending is not unlimited. So for the types of properties I mentioned will 36" be efficient enough or should I go for a bigger mower that may not be as high of quality. All imput is appreciated.

    Keep in mind I already own a push mower that I would likely use for access to problem areas.

    I think that a 48'' WB with a floating deck...and the Hydro instead of gear drive would suit your needs,based on the size yards you will be doing!

    Yeah that was my thought I think the 48" is a pretty versatile size. I know at some point I will look into a 36" for a backup. Any other imput?
