Re: which one to buy for a big guy
Depending on where you live and grass conditions, you may want to avoid mowing your grass when it's been hot and dry for awhile. I'm 6'5"/290, and on my Gravely ZTXL 42, my wheels would occasionally leave tracks in the grass when I drove (when I mowed a week later, most of the grass was still green, but the grass had turned yellow where my wheels had been).
Between that happening a couple of times, and once going over an edge into a ravine, I switched to a 52" Snapper Pro hydro walkbehind mower, and it works well for me.
