Hey Everyone,Sorry for being so long winded, but really need help on a new/newer mower.Problem is,I live in a pretty remote area and only shop in town sells/services only Honda and Husqvarna.Could drive to Reno, but 40min. is some serious down time for a one man operation.Plus would really like to keep it local.I have 2 com. accounts that total about 6 acres and multiple res. accounts with both good and bad access.To top it off I only mow about 5.5 to 6 months a year due to snow.Whew!!!Looking at a Walker model s, a hydro drive w/b toroand snapper and lastly a Husqvarna hydro w/b. Any help would be great.Thanks!!!!

thanks for the input.
Iwas thinking also of just getting another honda commercial and having an employee. What do you think? Calls are coming left and right!

I love my toro, I havent used any of the others, and I prefer the T-Bar over the pistol grip, just my 2 cents worth

Yes i have the floating deck, lots of my accounts are country yards and not level, i have hung it a time or two and it is tuff, hasnt bent yet, my scag is a fixed deck and it wants to scalp at times and these are my primary mowers and the pistol grips would wear me out on an 8 hour day, my hands would cramp so bad. The scag cuts great I just dont like the controls. A friend of mine had a toro with t-bar steering and after 5 minutes of using it i was hooked and had to have it, hope this helps some
