I normally don't do residential, but because I have a few commercial owners that don't want two service providers I do service their homes. I get asked to take on more residential business so I think this year I will. I don't use a larger walk behind on residential jobs because of rutting, I use 21" Ariens and they work great. Mow different direction every mow. I was just wondering what type of mowers everyone is using on residential jobs and if they. I see posts on here about some companies using ztr's on residential jobs, ( not my choice) but would like to hear some views on efficiency and how you keep from rutting the yards.
