I just registered tonight and this is my first (of many more) post. I've been part time for 5 years and last year bought a 36 in. snapper walk behind. I had 20-21 residential accounts last year (mainly just cutting). I found last year on some of my nicer yards I was having to double cut to make them look decent especially in the first half of the season. I'm wondering if this is a common thing to have to do? I side discharged. One of the big lawn care services here in town runs Dixie Choppers and his cuts look fantastic. You guys who use Dixie's do you ever have to double cut? My last point: I'm considering going full time this coming year targeting residential accounts (mainly an acre and under) and considering the 42 in. Dixie Chopper as it would enable me to get through gates and work in small areas. What do you guys think? I know I've asked alot but any advice is GREATLY appreciated!
