    My back gates range between 43 and 46 inches. Most of the lawn area is in the back. 42 is as big as I can really go.

    well then you can't really use a riding mower anyways as they are all bigger than that unless you are talking about homeowner residential mowers. ztr mowers are 48" - 72" wide.

    your best bet would be a 36" stander.

    Not at all true. you can get a 42" Walker. My old boss had 3.

    yeah maybe. i'm not sure what he means by a "riding mower." riding mowers are generally talking about homeowner tractor style mowers which aren't designed for lawn businesses to be used daily.

    i guess you can use a walker if you want to. i don't like walker mowers personally. if i had situations like that i would use a stander.

    I am going to demo a B23i with a 42 mulch deck.

    i would say most people would think a walker mower is a riding mower so good thing you took that off your website.

    It is for sure. A 42 Wright stander or Grandstand 40 may be an option.
