Hi all,

I have enjoyed reading this site for info on lawn care work. I thought that I would share some pics of my equipment and a lawn I mowed today with my new to this season Toro LX420 Tractor that is doing an exceptionally great job...(A riding mower is new to me as this is my 4Th year in the biz)

Have a great day,

Just a question. Any reason you didn't get the Residential ZTR's?

I've looked at your tractor and the ZTR, I think the ZTR would be quicker.

Yes the ZTR would be more efficient but I believe the cheapest one is $2,500 where the tractor was only 1,300 so it was paid in 2 weeks!!! .....The tractor is a major improvement over walking all my lawns with a 21". Most of my lawns also have very few obstructions and I am maxed out on work load...

nice little trailer and tractor you got there, nice lawn too!

You are maxed out on your work load because you have a tractor! :dizzy:

Get the Z and you wont be maxed out! :headphones:

When I had a tractor my max workload was 8 accounts with the time I had. Now I am doing 17 accounts w/ a Z and willing to fit more into the schedule.

Nothing wrong with your equipment, just start saving up some of that money to go with a Z. You will find that it will put more in your pocket.
By the way, AMA 322661 - IMAA 11150. Maybe we can find a Kansas fun fly some time.

If that's the price they are going for. You had the tractor paid in 2 weeks, that means you should be able to pay for the Z in 3 weeks, right? It will save you a ton of time & they look more professional IMO.

I would actually need to save up to buy a new trailer with a Z of the same sizr deck as my Tractor at least with the Toro's because they are a little bit larger...I am happy with the quality of cut and time my LX420 saves me over a 21" walk behind.

I still make over $.60 a minute in profit as a teen so I'm not complaining and I get to go flying just about every weekend!!!
