    I am mowing part time. About 8 to 10 hrs. per. week. I am interested in purchasing a ZTR. It must be able to fit through a 36" gate, and must bag. The Hustler Fast Track is not recommended for even light commercial. The Mini Z has a 44' deck, too big. The Walker is out of my price range. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?

    How big is the area of grass inside these TINY gates?

    If you MUST ride, and MUST bag, I think the Walker is your only choice.

    I'd rather see you with a simple 32"-36" WB and a cloth or aluminum bagger.

    alot of guys in my area are running the toro homeowner mowers. they are 2400 for a 38 or 40" whatever it is but the cut isnt that great. Why not get a walk behind? You can get a commercial one on a budget and get a great cut.
