im looking to start some sort of lawn/landscape service and wanted to see what ppl like for mowers. I DO NOT want to spend a lot of money right away on a mower maybe a grand or two at the very most. Most of the lawns will be residentials with a few commercials I can lock in right away from my snow removal contracts. Im thinking a rider would be nice but I’ve seen the walkbehinds look pretty neat and you can get into tight spots better since there’s a shorter wheel base? Not sure if I’d even be able to buy the back wheels with my budget. Prob need a push mower. Is a 36” prob the best size to get through any gates I may encounter? Do most ppl want the yard bagged also? I need to keep that in mind to when buying a mower. Here’s a pic of a walk behind I though was pretty slick.
