    I'd suggest a used walk-behind until you cannot keep up with your workload. In my opinion, if you buy that $3000 mower, you won't want it in a year, and you won't get much for it on resale.

    Like everyone else I would look for a nice used walk behind. If you have 3000 to spend on a mower i would look for a nice low hour 48" hydro with a floating deck. You can always put a velke on it if you get tired of walking behind it. It would also be something you can use later and be more than a one year investment.
