Residential Riding Mower vs. Commercial Mowers

colorblind1961May 24, 2012

We have approx. 1.5 acres and use a 23hp Husqvarna 48inch riding mulching mower. We cut about every 3-4 days. Our mower leaves lanes and lanes of cut grass pieces that look horrible afterward. We usually have to sweep our yard to prevent clumping. I notice that when some of our neighbors get their yards cut by professionals who use those bigger commercial mowers, their yards look gorgeous grass lying down. Why is that? They only get their yards cut once a week and their grass is twice as high as ours. Is there a brand of residential mower that is better? Cub Cadet??? John Deere??? Thanks for your help!
