    I am just curious what brand of mower is most commonly used for professional stadium grounds crews. I have done some searching on this site and on google with little luck. It is nothing more than curiousity. I just wondered if there was a "standard" brand across the board or if it was similar to on hear where it is a wide variety.

    Our goal is to mow everyday. Realistically we average about 5-6 days a week. We use 1 5500, 1 3100, 2 3250, and a walk behind greens mower.

    We use Toro & John Deere at our complexes. I would venture to say that toro is used most often.

    I had no idea that you guys cut those fields that often. You guys do awesome work. I was just curious to the frequency and equipment. Thanks for the answers.
