For your residential crew, what size rider do you use? 52inch or 60inch?
I am gonna use a 66", but most of the neighborhoods I am gonna advertise in are 1/3-1.5 acre yards. For the couple yards I can not used a 66 on, I will use a 21 walk behind. I hope to not get to many yards like that. If I end up getting to many small yards, I will get a 34Z.
As big as I can. Usually a 60".
54" deck rider
also have a 48" walk for the smaller yards.
52" stander or the 48" or 36" Scags
I currently run a 54" Ztr and a 36" wb. As soon as I can afford to do it, I will trade in my belt drive wb and get a 36" stander. I don't know if it will be a Wright, or a Gravely (34") or a JD 48" (Too big IMO for back yards with a gate)
I don't want to be using a 21" walk behind or a line trimmer in a back yard that I cannot get into with a decent sized mower. A 36" or a 34" seem to be almost necessary if you are going to target residential as a primary source of income.
Just my opinion.
61" ztr or 52" w/b
54" ztr, 34" ztr, 33" walk behind.
If I dont need the bagger, ill use the 72" over the 60" every time.
