    Splatz, I'd demo all of the equipment you listed and then some.. THEN I'd make a desicion.. Hindsight is always 20/20... You may want to try a Stand-up mower as well.. They are very manuverable..Either way, I prefer to ride myself.. :cool:

    Is this your first commercial mower? If so I would go with a W/B to start with.
    What is the biggest size deck that you can use on your current lawns?
    I have a 36 wb and a 60 Lazer, the lazer will not cut evenly on residentials that have some slopes and little hills to them. I will have to go over a certain direction each time with the lazer to get the lawn cut in that spot level.

    I'd go for the 34Z before the WB. In fact, if the 34Z were a 32Z I'd probably have one sitting on my trailer in place of my 32"WB. But if you do go the WB route, get a hydro.
