Just to start, i am not a lawn care professional, but I have enjoyed looking at this site. I have about an acre of grass and need equiptment to mow it. I think i would prefer a used commercial walk behind and am thinking about a 44-48 inch mower. I found a used toro, 44 inch hydro that is about 90 miles from me. the owner wants $1400. He says it is 3 years old, has about 150 hours. It comes with a velke and a grass catcher. attached are photos. thanks for all input.
