One pic would have been enough - they all look the same. I expected to see the incomparable Bobcat in your living room, or beautifully displayed on a bed of roses.

I have a pic of the trailer, but can't post it because it has my name/number on it. Only 1 WB, barrell, trimmer, and blower will fit on my 5x10 trailer. I will try to post a pic the next time it is loaded up.

Why didn't you get another bobcat instead of a toro? How many accounts do you have? I am guessing you have a worker work with you?

The Snapper rider is from the Gump era too. It is a 1979. I got it from my Grandpa, when he got another mower. It has a thacherizer, and is a good backup mower.

To put it in a nutshell, I was between a 36" Bob-Cat Classic and the Toro Proline 36" mower. The dealer said the Toro is a better built machine than the Bob-Cat Classic, so I bought the Toro, I love it so far!!! I have 14 accounts. I don't have another worker, it's just me.

Then why 2 mowers? What are you pulling the trailer with? Do your parents take you to your jobs and wait?

Sorry for so many questions, just curious.

My Grandpa takes me from job to job, he is retired and reads in the truck while I am working. I pull the trailer with my parents' '00 Chevrolet 1500 Suburban. I plan on buying a pickup when I can drive. My 11 year old brother occasionally helps me out if I need him. He runs the Toro Proline 36".

I paid about $210 for each of the Grass Gobblers. I like the Gobbler design, they are built really well, and they catch the grass clippings very well. I have heard of some accelerators falling apart.

Notice the paint on the bobcat muffler. Its not be used enough to burn the paint off yet.

Ok, I'll give you a break. It looks really nice. You have done well with equipment for your age. Keep it up.

That Snapper brings back memories. We had one with the same thatcher set up when I was younger.

Great collection. Seem like you really have it together for someone who's younger and in the business.

Here are some pics of the trailer loaded. Depending on which lawns I am cutting on a given day, I either take the Bob-Cat 48",or like today I took the Toro 36".

When the grass is wet do the belts slip much or do you have good traction to both tires? My snapper wb slips like crazy. Like your setup pretty nice.

I like the mesh bags better.. The steel ones blow out wayyyyy to much dust. I actually cut up 2-3 mower bags and lines my grass gobbler with it and attached it to the sides.. There's a lot less dust flying around. - peter

I'm VERY careful, and I wear the Stihl cut proof chaps over my pants to protect my legs from cuts.
