    Is 72" the largest deck size you use for your company? I was looking into upgrading to a 96" Exmark or Toro but I am not seeing too many positives about large area mowers. Please let me know what you're using in your fleet for large area properties.

    My understanding with the wide area mowers is that even with wings folded up they are fairly wide so you may be limited by existing trailer width.

    25 inch biggest useable mower I own.

    Got a couple bigger mowers but they don't run and are more lawn art at this point.

    61” stander is the largest I run.

    A buddy of mine runs a 96” Exmark but all they do is gas pipeline right of ways and electric right of ways.

    I can't imagine very many residential yards you could break that out. Maybe if you have contracts with your city for their parks etc. Then it may be profitable.

    72 inch mowers are the largest we run. Two or three of those operating will knock quite a bit out of an area fairly quick.
