I am no longer in the business but I have a couple acres to mow. Once you use pro mowers, it's tough to go back, so I need to find a mower with 48"minimum - 72" maximum, floating deck, biggest engine possible. I know this is a very tall order for about $1000, but if anyone has a old beater out there for about that amount of money, I'd be interested in hearing about it. I'm not afraid of doing some work to it if needed. email me email@example.com Thanks!
