Just curious to see what everybody is running. I know its going to be different for some people becuase they have different size jobs.

But. i am currently running a 48 wb with 60 rider. I have 2 of each. Some days i need both riders and can hold up to 3 mowers total.

I was thinking of changing out the 48's and going with 36's as i cant get the 48's in gates. Any thoughts on this.

Thanks Ja Red

Right now just running a 48" w/b. Soon will have a 60" Z and the 48" w/b. I tend not to take gated accounts so a 36" isn't for me. I need one of each mower though, the z for speed and the w/b for hills and such.

i feel like if i get rid of the 48s for 36s i will lose time on jobs outside of the gated jobs. However, i really dont use the walkbehind all that much anyhow.

As you stated you don't really use the 48" much and you have gated properties. Weigh the two. Gain X amount of time using the 36" in gated properties where your going to mostly use it vs. the smaller X amoutn of time using it outside of the gates.

Sounds pretty clear what you need to go with. :waving:

48" wb, 21" wb, thats it for me, not big enough to justify anything bigger. Hopefully a Z next year!!!

I have the perfect set up, well for me. I run a 36" Metro HP, and a 48" Hydro. Next year it will be the 36" and a 52" Turf Tracer HP. Along with all of the other goodies I'm good to go. The only reason I would buy a ztr is if I win a bid of 108 properties all right next to each other and all with gated back yards, then it would be definetly a 36" ztr. Maybe a Gravley 34"
