I am purchasing a gravely pro turn 252 to add to my gear. My question is do you think it is to big to pull out for smaller yards, I mean like the $35 dollar cut and go type. I am using this equitment for my larger commercial accounts. I personally don t think its a prob, I would love any input.

Some people with smaller yards may think you will leave big ruts with a huge mower on their yard, but I often use my very big ferris DD walkbehind on some small yards, my customers dont complain about it, but I could see how some would, and it would leave ruts if I didnt alternate the mowing pattern weekly.

I always alternate cutting patterns, I agree I need a bigger and faster piece of equitment to do the bigger commercial properties, so I think I will use it. It will speed up my time for sure and be easier on me rather than using my walk behind.

I mow all but about 3 of my residential accounts with a 61" ztr. Occasionally you'll get the annoying customer who says the riders are too heavy, but I haven't had much trouble with that. As long as the cut looks good you shouldn't have a problem.

Yea I hope it won t be any problems I picked some nice commercial accounts and I want to make the most of my time. I want to expand and still be profitable and it seems I will be able to cut just a little quicker than using my old walk behind
