    Sentimental Value maybe?

    I mow mine with my 22'' toro PPS.

    Works fine and lets me bag the small front and back yard. Used to mow with the 44z but it ruts too easily now.

    I use my super z 60". And bag it. By the time I get around to my own yard I'm ready to get it over with.

    I've always used my snapper rear engine rider on mine... Its probably almost 13 years old now. I bought it when I was 15 for $400 off of an old man, and mowed around the neighborhood with it for money. I don't have a business right now, but when I did, I still used my Snapper on my lawn. Not sure if I'll ever get rid of it. I guess I'm still attached.

    I have a lawn that's 8' by 42' with a small concrete slab on part of it that I mow with my JD 145. Sometimes when I already have it out, or don't want to move it to get to the 145, I use the 72" JD777. It took a little under 3 min the last time I timed it!
