Right now I have a 62" z master. Mowing solo I average about $70/hr. My accounts are residental, but are mostly 3/4-1 acres. I would like to use a walker to increase my quality and eliminate clippings, my concern is that each lawn will take me a lot longer due to the slower speed and smaller deck. I guess my question is how many of you mow 1acre+ lawns with walkers? Has anyone switched from a z to walker, or a walker to z? I put a quick vac collections system on my z for cleanups, but the chute bouces around and you have to go slow, and the spindles are taking a beating. Most of the time I need to go over the lawn twice to get up the leaves.
