    Ive been using gear driven walk behinds and im ready to step up to the bigger mowers, but one problem....... theres so many to choose from!!!!
    I need help, big time. Im a northeastern ohio landscaper and deal with changing conditions on a daily basis. I have a billy goat 33'' finish mower and am proud of the results so far but im lookin at zero-turn sit downs and zero turn standers. My options are wright, exmark, scag which i only hear good things, exmark, bunton, and bob-cat. I cut only weekends but i have big lawns i have ten $50-100 dollar lawns, and keeps growing help me out guys

    How big are the yards? All of the first three are great mowers.

    I was in a similar situation at the start of the season. I was looking at a 60" Turf Tracer but I kept my eye on ebay and bought a Scag.
    Choose something you can get service close by. Think about a grass/leaf collection system. I lost out on income because I could not efficiently do large spring/fall cleanups on large properties. No more!.

    SCAG promo 1.9% for 48 months

    Sounds Like a 48 inch tiger cub would fit you perfect. Scag is very dependable and give a great cut with the velocity deck. Geat adaptive mower.
