Like most newbies, I am going to try my best to start my own lawn service business. My goal is not to be huge...but just be productive with a one man show, and therefore....my question is this: I live in south Florida where land is expensive and lots are very small, even for very expensive homes. It is also very hot, as you know. What should my first mower be? A walk behind (36, 48?) or a ZTR 60 or 52. I could actually pull the cash out of my ass to buy a new one of either to a certain degree but I am afraid that if I am on a walk behind, even with a sulky....I am going to get more tired faster out here in this heat. BUT....is a 60 ZTR sit on top going to be to big for these small little yards. I'd have to say that most yards are going to be under 1/4 of an acre....if even that. Largest subdivision around my area has 1/2 lots and that is it. Any suggestions? Appreciate the help with this one. I just don't know enough to make an educated decision on this one. Ohhh...and not many gates to go through either.
