Recc for a small yard

I have a very small patch of grass, but still want to get a riding mower for it, as I also need to mow the shoulder of the road (which is a good bit larger) and it's hot as Hades at the beach in the summer.

Grass is St Augustine and the terrain is very hilly. I tried to mow it with my self propelled (Toro Super Recycler), but I can't raise the deck high enough to keep from scalping the grass. My other limitation is storage space. I need a very small rider to fit in my storage shed down there.

Looking for used, not new. I've considered an old 28" Snapper, the TroyBilt Neighborhood 30" and the Cub Cadet CC30H. But I have not actually looked at their physical dimensions yet. Are there others I should consider?

Re: Recc for a small yard

If you are scalping with a push mower, a rider is going to make it that much worse with a bigger deck. Cheap and steep terrain should not be used in the same sentence or you might end up hurt or worse. Maybe look at a commercial walk behind with a sulky. Still will be spendy.
