Hi I am new to this site and rather new to the lawn service business. I currently have about 10 accounts and I am looking to get a little bigger I have a full time job and I only run my lawn service about 3-4 days a week. I currently have a John Deere Js40 mower purchased last year, Its been a good mower but it is still a high end homeowner unit, it is just getting loose, (worn out) the drive belts are wearing out and it just does not cut all that nice anymore. I have my Echo trimmer and my blower, so far these tools have done great. I have noticed that it is taking me a long time to cut the lawns I have and that's why I am thinking of getting a bigger mower. I Hate to say it but I think if I buy a walk-behind I will be paying for it with all of this years money, so next year will be all profit if it works out, the old proven saying of "you have tto spend money to make money" is proving itself again. I have been looking at just about every commercial 36" walk-behind on the market, from cheap junk to very high dollar, Belt drive and hydro, but I think hydro is out just because of the price, every brand has been looked at and played with for atleast a few minutes, I started looking at pistol grip models and I thought I would stay away from that because its seemed uncomfortable but i have also learned that theat is a no fail design since the 80's I saw a bunch of models with other grip controls, I have looked at Toro's T-Bar and I really like that but to make a long story short, I have found a Husqvarna walk-behind that is pistol grip and I really like the way it feels the price is good for a 36" belt drive mower $2399. the toro is only $2599 but I wanted to stay around 2500 out the door, I think the salesguy can help me out a little because of who I work for, Anyway I wanted to see some opinions on that Husqvarna mower so far I have not seen any of those mowers on any trailers around my area, mostly bob cat and toro mowers. I know That Husqvarna has a good name behind it, but lets see what other people say. anyhelp would be great.
