Just thought I'd share a few pictures of our equipment and just some random shots. Don't mind the dirt - it's impossible to keep em clean this time of year! Enjoy!

The tractor is a 4310. Actually have 4 deere ztr's - 2 757 60", 1 777 60", 1 717 48". Just added the two Kubotas a 60" and 48". Also in the front is an Exmark Navigator 48". Getting in sideways is actually easier than it looks - just have to go in backwards and spin it sideways - just try not to hit the wall too many times! :weightlifter:

When I don't flip up the deck on the Navigator I spin 2 of them sideways - the one behind the navigator and the one on the back. I've just recently started flipping the deck up each time - seems a little easier. Gotta get all 4 of them on there at one time so sideways is the way to go!

The john deere's have been good but our local dealer didn't have much good to say about the new model so we decided to go with Kubota. So far the Kubota seems to be built a lot beter but is taking some time to get used to - a lot bigger, more sensitive machine.

The HPS is actually only a couple months old but so far so good. A lot easier than pushing a pallet of fertilizer!!

As for the business - we are family owned and operated with 4 full time right now, sometimes 5. We currently have about 43 commercial customers, a retirement community, and a 75 unit town house complex.

Is that for mowing?

Full maintenance contracts on all the customers, not just mowing. We also do installs and irrigation during the winter months.

Very nice pictures and equipment!

Do you do much spraying with the skid sprayer shown in the first picture? I would think that hand crank would get old real quick! I've got the same sprayer but with an electric reel. I can't imagine reeling all that hose in all day long!

Whats hanging behind the deck skirt on the kubota?

Actually getting it in there sideways is a lot easier than it looks! Just back in almost all the way and spin!

We use the sprayer a good bit in the spring time doing broadleaf control but not much else through the year. We've got a 100 gallon 3 pt hitch sprayer for the tractor but with diesel so high its a lot easier not having to take 2 units when we need to spray! The manual reel isn't as bad as I thought - seems like it would take a long time for the electric to roll up but I've never used one.

We haven't added anything to the Kubotas. The bagger does have a rubber flap around the inside front of the deck - I assume to keep dust down.
