I'm a newbie and am currently using a toro 22, I only have 8 residential lawns this year but hope to have 15 - 20 next year. I am looking into getting a 36 but I don't know which one. There are a couple dealers around here but only one good one and he sells ferris, exmark, and wright. I looked into getting a metro, but for 400.00 more I could get a Ferris hydro walk SD which is a single hydro for 3,000.00. So my question is should I go with the Ferris because it's a hydro, the metro because it's cheaper, or look at used equipment in the paper????? BTW: If I buy from the dealer he will give me a mower to use when mine is in his shop.
