I'm trying to narrow down the walk-behinds I want to get for next year. I can't afford a ZTR, and I'll still have to finance walk-behinds. I'm trying to get a set of 3 that will work for almost any job. I want a 21", 36", and 48" walk-behind. I kind of want a 32" instead of a 36", but the brands I'm interested in don't make hydro 32". They just make gear driven 32" models and everyone says I need the 36" or 32" to be hydro for easier manuverability. Here are a couple scenarios. Let me know what combination of 3 walk-behinds you would get in my situation even if it isn't listed. If you know some of the prices for mowers I have chosen or you have suggested, please list them. Thanks for any help as I am pretty much clueless about the large walk-behinds. I know I should demo them, and I definitely will before purchasing one. I'm am just trying to get an idea of what I should be looking at.

TORO – WALK-BEHIND - 15 HP KOHLER, FLOATING DECK HYDRO DRIVE 36” CLASSIC, T-BAR
TORO - WALK-BEHIND - 15 HP KOHLER, FIXED DECK GEAR DRIVE 48”, T-BAR
TORO – WALK-BEHIND – 6 HP KAWASAKI, COMMERCIAL 21”

OR

TORO – WALK-BEHIND - 6 HP KAWASAKI, COMMERCIAL 21”
HUSTLER – WALK BEHIND – 15 HP KAWASAKI or 17 HORSEPOWER KAWASAKI 37”, H-BAR
HUSTLER – WALK BEHIND - 15 HP KAWASAKI or 17 HORSEPOWER KAWASAKI 48”, H-BAR

this is what I would do, if I was starting all over again.

honda hrc 217 hxa. approx. $1,000
quick 36 super duty. $2400
Hustler Hydro WalkBehind, 17HP Kawasaki/54 $5,970

I know the hustler is expensive, but it goes 10mph, and will replace the Z for a good while. I don't see a 48" being any better for you than a 54", so you might as well up your productivity.

y'know, I was thinking that, he could prolly buy a lazer hp for around $6700.

maybe he could skip the 21" er and buy a 32" metro and a lazer hp 52".
