Which model do you recommend?
The BIGGEST DECK, with the BIGGEST ENGINE you can get!!!
I would recommend one that fits your properties...not necessarily the biggest deck or the biggest engine either.
We have two 48" WB's that we treat as trim mowers and use them for very steep hillsides.
A 72" for us would be way to big on the commercial properties so we settled for a 61". We opted for a bigger engine...not the biggest. We upgraded to the 29 LC/EFI kawi. You can go bigger with diesel or the 35HP B&S. But for us that would be overkill.
The only time the machine bogs down a little is when we have the rear soft bagger on and we head up the steep inclines.
Perhaps you missed it.
I was giving a vague recommendation for a vague question.
Ive got a tiger cub with a kohler 20hp and 48'' deck and Im very pleased with mine, just routine stuff, belts and 1 spring on the mower , almost 1000 hours now
Turf Tiger, 27 hp lc kawi w/61" deck
51" Wildcat 26hp Lc Kawasaki. 51" chosen to fit through doors of storage shed.
