what mower to get

I am looking into starting a mowing service and would like some insight on the does and don't. I have read a lot of opinions on commercial vs residential 21" mowers. I am leaning towards the lighter models. I have read some good things about craftsman mowers but that was a consumer report. I would like to get a good bag mower as a plan on mostly bag. Also a weedeater I am looking at a still. any kind of info would be great. will be doing about 10 lawns a week. Thanks

A dealer sold Toro Super Recycler 21 (~$550 w/bag) would be the minimum I'd get. The hardware store/HD sold Toro Recycler 22 is substandard in comparison.

I purchased a Quickie 32 a couple of years ago...and it is indeed worth 4-5x more than the above Toro. Because a 32 fits through all my gates, the 21 stays at home in the shed...and collects dust.

Trimmer & blower? Stihl, Echo, RedMax, Shindaiwa, Kawasaki - you choose
