    I have been doing mostly residential this year and been looking for a 48" mower. Is a JD318 too big of a mower to do residential? It's a great machine but I did not know what I might sacrifice in one that size. Thanks

    The 318s are an older machine. Nothing wrong with it. In fact I would like to find something along those lines, not for mowing though.

    Size should not be a problem. However there are more productive machines out there. They are faster and more maneuverable.
