I just landed a great account with a local little league. We will be mowing the fields and also maintaining the grounds. Currently we only use 21" push mowers...that just wont do. Today I applied for credit with John Deere and Ferris. I have not heard back yet but if I get approved which should I get?? I will be buying: one 36" walk behind and one 48" walk behind. I know what your thinking...buy a ztr or a riding tractor. This just is not practical due to the fact that there are no large properties that would require a rider in my area. Plus money is an issue. I will be able to use the 36" on some other properties Which machine should I buy---the john deere or the ferris?
