Skitter,
The width is with the discharge chute down. It may fit through with the discharge chute up but you may have to remove the chute and then reinstall it after you get through the gate. You may want to look at installing a mulching kit on the mower to reduce the width.

The zero turn mowers are not normally used to mow in reverse, the deck will not cut out when you pull the levers to the reverse position, but with this style mower you would not mow in reverse you only use it to back up out of a corner or to make a turn.

In my opinion it could be if most of the properties are relatively flat. If you have any major banks, hills or slopes it's gonna be scary to use for them. It manuvers extremely well though and is about as effortless as it can be to use. just a little tricky on those banks

In my area a local dealer who handles the brand preps the machine and delivers and picks it up. You can have this dealer perform the regular maintenance on the machine down the road as well. The manufacturer provides a warrranty and will work with the dealer that delivered it for warranty coverage. I'm going through this now - my guy picked mine up on Monday and expects to have it back to me by Friday. Home Depot will use a local dealer to handle the warranty. In addition they have their regular return policy, but you need an RA # to have the mower picked up by them and you can't have any fluids in it. It takes a few days for your account to be credited back the money and also between 3 and 5 business days for HD to call you to set up the return in the first place, which is why I didn't just return mine but instead called the dealer who was glad to help..
