    Im new to this site and I'm needing help trying to figure out what would be the best wide cut walk behind mower for mowing city lots. Price is a little bit of an issue but not necessarily, I just don't want to get to far in the hole without having any client yet. Ive looked at the exmark metro's, Ariens, world lawn and gravely but I don't not what to do because I keep reading so many bad review about all of them. Any help would be much appreciated thank you.

    i would look at scag or deere.
  3. Get the best you can. For me it'd be an Exmark hydro. Take care of it. Then if the worse happens and your business goes belly-up, you'll have a machine people are falling over themselves to buy.
    If your business takes off you'll have a machine that'll earn you lots of money.

    If you buy a cheapie, you'll own it for life and it'll never be able to keep up.

    Getting cheap on equipment won't save you money, it'll cost you.

    What you probably need is a Wright Stander.

    Ok good deal thank y'all for the help and the rights are not easy to get a hold of so my dealer says. I think I'm going to go with the exmark metro it seems like a nice mower and the price really is not too bad at all. Once again thank y'all for the help it means alot.

    What does a new 36inch Wright Stander cost compared to an Exmark or Scag?
