    I know there is tons of posts already but i feel like i cant relate to any of them..
    I want a mower (preferrably under 2000) my area is flat..so i see no need for a floating deck..and id rather not use a zero turn..to many cons..if i do go with a zero turn..i want a deck in front and not underneath..

    Im looking behing stand on and walk behinds

    I cant seem to choose..i dont need a huge deck 36" would actually be about perfect..I dont have an abundance of customers so it isnt going to take hard abuse daily..maybe only 15 lawns a week..

    If a decent zero turn does catch my eye at a good price and i know it will be as reliable i may consider it but its last on my list honestly..

    if anyone could help out.. i know you are all probably tired of both me and people asking about mowers

    the only thing is there is NO DEALERS in my area..if i have to ill take a drive to pick one up..but i dont wanna be driving 30-45 minutes from dealer to dealer wasting gas and time..the only thing locally is a ariens and toro (i believe its toro) and i will be stopping there..

    Craigslist has a lot of mowers in my area. Check for your area.

    I bought a circa 2001 Toro Proline 36" walkbehind from a friend that also runs a mowing company a few years ago (I think in 2006) just to use to cut my father's lawn and my lawn. I paid $1300.

    He outgrew it and now I am outgrowing the 36" walkbehind (man, am I hurting at the end of the week!) and am looking at a Toro Grandstand 52" to keep up with the accounts that seem to keep coming in!

    Basically, it's smart to buy a well maintained used mower from a company like mine that is out growing their current equipment.

      Most of our yards are small to medium. I would love to have a 26" mower but too expensive. For now, I will stick to my 21"

        Well there is always room for your business to grow so dont thing to to small.. it sucks buying a smaller machine then out of now where your business grows over night lol happened to me and i no of a lot of others that it happened to.. Also even tho your yards are all flat a floating deck will still do a better job keeping an even cut over dips and bumps because no yard is perfect and U might get a yard someday that really needs a floating deck for a good finish so if U could find one in your price range id really recommend one.
