Hi Guys...I would value your opinions: I'm contracting over in Australia running honda 21" atm. I've got about 60 contracts of various sizes. Just turned 40 this year and realising that walking all day is becoming more and more difficult...it's bloody hot and humid here in summertime. So I want to make the leap to a ztr both to make what I've got easier to do and also to take on some bigger jobs. Since contemplating this I've already picked up 3 1-2 acre jobs of manicured gardens that are waiting for me once I've got the equipment (build it and they will come!) So I've been looking around and most guys around here use Toro but they are big machines and I didn't really feel they suited the majority of my clients. Then there's the walker which I didn't like the control and super expensive. Gravely have a look in here too and it's the gravely compact pro 34" that I like the look of the most. It fits through gates and seems pretty nippy and from what I've seem on your site they seem to have a good rap...except for the rutting which can be solved with wider tyre mod. The question is can I still realistically cut a couple of acres with it? Is there an alternative that people use? I tried side discharging the walker the other day in one of my residential sand it seemed crazy dangerous with stuff flying everywhere...do people do this or stick with muching. Thanks, great site you have here.
