    What are the lawns like over the wall ?   I have a Toro 22 inch steel deck but it's too heavy to be lifting over walls so i carry an egg whisk , A small MTX to save my back , great for cutting small to medium  lawns where a perfect finish is not required .

      Mostly a mix of grass weeds and carpet Moss, yes you've guessed it they like super short which I hate doing . I tried using my gt2 flymo but I hated the finish and combine that having to push it up a 45-50deg bank I soon went back to the viking

    Scruffy for the most part but customers are fussy, 40kg easy lift for me, with the Viking I'm aware that if I slip on a bank it's going to take the wall out

       And cause yourself an injury / damage to your machine , I tend to put personal safety first in these situations .

          Well the wall can be re built , your mower patched up but your back and limbs may take a while to heal . 

          Physically lifting most mowers off the ground is hard work and if you are lifting the mower over the wall its easy to lose your balance , ask me how i know sometime :)

  • No idea. What about a small etesia??

    Small Honda izy maybe? Light enough especially if you get one without drive that's not needed anyway with such a light machine!
