    you will need to be an adult with insurance and license.......any commercial mower will out perform what you are used to....

    a 36" 60" and 48" would be a very nice set up..if you learn nothing else about equipment learn to go with the biggest engine option available....NOTHING SUCKS WORSE THEN KNOWING YOU SUNK ALOT OF MONEY IN SOMETHING THAT IS UNDER POWERED (Trust me its happend) as far as what engine i would suggest a 15Hp for gated yards if its only goin to be used ever to often and not all day a 19Hp on the tthp...i run one sometime with a 19Hp and love it...as far as a lazer goes i would buy one with a 27Hp.....hope this helps...BTW how are you goin to afford all this stuff your 15! Also i thing another good idea is to get mowers of the same brand and Exmark is a VERY good brand
