    I AM LOOKING TO BUY MOWER TO START A 2ND CREW. I CURRENTLY RUN A 48" SCAG ZT, AND A 32" EXMARK WB. I AM IN TEXAS, IT IS ALWAYS HOT! WALKING 10 MILES A DAY IN THE HEAT GETS OLD SO I AM LOOKING AT STANDERS, Z'S, OR WB'S WITH SULKY. OF COURSE THE LESS I PAY UP FRONT THE FASTER I MAKE A PROFIT. ON THE OTHER HAND THE FASTER THEY CAN GET THE LAWNS DONE, THE MORE WE CAN FIT IN THE DAY. IS 1 OR 2 MORE JOBS A DAY WORTH PAYING DOUBLE ON EQUIPMENT? OR CAN YOUR 2ND CREW BE PROFITABLE WITH A 36" WB?? FASTER WITH A 32" - 36" RIDER OR STANDER SO IT WILL DO FRONT AND BACK OF ALL PROPERTIES. OR WHEN IT COME TO MAKING A PROFIT IS THE WHOLE SPEED THING OVERRATED? a LOT OF QUESTIONS I KNOW. ANY THOUGHTS?
