Default at what point do i upgrade mowers

Hey guys, i have a zero turn John Deere 54" mower, it cuts great but at what point should i upgrade to a commercial zero turn if all my customers are residential with normal sized properties? Is it more for looks or does a comm, mower make a cut look that much more professional?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Commercial mowers are designed to be used in a commercial environment. Using a non-commercial mower not only voids the warranty it also isn't going to last very long.

A home owner model is designed to last a few years of cutting one lawn once per week. A commercial mower will go 2000 hours and keep ticking with proper upkeep.
