I work a full-time job for a local publishing company and have been mowing a couple of lawns for the past few years for extra money. I've been a member here for nearly 3 years now, and I've found that this site contains an incredible wealth of information. Some friends of my father's own a lawn care service, and they are looking at cutting back their workload. I am looking into taking on 5-6 more lawns from them, and I feel that now is the time to step up to a commercial grade walk-behind. I've been looking around at various dealers who carry Scag, Toro, MTD Pro (out of the question for me), Gravely, and Great Dane. Based on what I have seen, I like the Scag (48" fixed deck, 15hp Kaw Twin Belt drive) and the Toro (48" fixed deck 15hp Kaw Twin Belt drive). The Scag dealer quoted me a price of $2995+tax, and the Toro dealer quoted me a price of $2899+tax. Each dealer said around $250 for a velke. Do these prices sound like they are good, or are they out of line? Also, what type of velke is best, single wheel or dual? It seems to me that a dual would be more stable. But, the Scag dealer told me a 1 wheeler tracks better and they sell more of those. This is something that I have always enjoyed doing, and I think that I could make a go of it. Heck, you might as well get paid for something you like to do, right? Thanks in advance for your comments and advice.
