    Most economical is not the cheapest mower.
    Most economical mower is the one that will preform for many years with fewest repairs and little down time.
    Example: If your billing out mowing at $60 per hr. But $2000 mower is in shop for a week,
    40 hrs x $60 = $2,400
    Lost billing.
    Not so economical now.
    Plus customers will get POed if you get behind because mower is broke.

    My real question is?
    What is TL;DR. ?

    Thanks for sharing. I'm looking at a 5050 Timecutter now. It has the TORO engine (not Kohler or Kawasaki). So that bothers me somewhat. Please advise... do you have the TORO engine, and would you elaborate on what you mean by "BABY" the machine? I hear it will go 8MPH and get yards done VERY QUICKLY.
