I am planning on starting a business soon and I have a pretty good idea of the equipment that I want to start with. My question is, what type of mower would you suggest for a starter? I have researched this site and have noticed many people say to get a 36" for a starter. Which would you recommend getting, a new 36" walk-behind or a used riding mower? Are there any riding mowers that are small enough to get into backyards? My main goal is to get one great mower now, that I can depend on for atleast a year......what would you recommend...that wouldn't break the bank.....(0-$2000). Are walk-behinds worth getting? It just seems like if you want a lawn business, it's worth getting one where you can sit down!!! Hope to hear back from you all soon. Love the website, look forward to answering many more of my questions in the future! Thanks! Dan W.
