Bright sunny warm day here, i was doing some organizing to get ready for some spring overhaulin on a few pieces, I buy up alot of junk lawn mowers and snow blowers, pritty them up a bit and re sell them in the busy seasons, i have about 10 21" and 22" residential lawn mowers to put together and sell, the JD L120 i bought with a blown motor but i think the toro time cutter is going to go and i'm going to keep the L120 until i can justify another ZTR or a stander ZK to have hight adjustment on the fly, the L120 should be good for the open fields and foot long grass just to knock down for a few of my customers with vaccent lots that get done once a month.
Also by brand new Wright Stander, 48" 17hp kawi.... my royal blue snap on tool box, the JD 250 skid steer on rent for snow removal, it goes home april 1

this one is awsome, i've had a bobcat S205 and a Newholland 175 befor, and this thing has them both beat, but i do like the looks of the new Cat's.... i'm thinking about buying something, either a tractor or a skid steer late in the summer

Looks nice, what do you use the winch for? I used one today to get my truck on a 20 foot car hauler trailer. :cry:

the winch is for dragging broken equipment into the back of the truck or up the trailer, it has 50ft of cable and 50% of the time i fly solo, and in the skid steer is on rent from United rentals for the winter, it goes back April first

How do you like the 17 hp on the wright stander, I have the same engine and I'm getting a 52 wright stander and I feel like i need the 25hp engine. What do you think? thanks

had two 48"s with the 19hp and going up a hill or in thick wet grass you could feel it loosing power....i'd go with atleast a 21

it is a tad under powered.... it cuts like normal grass just fine, bags good with the grass gobblers but it won't cut like fields or lawns thats been left for over a month, i have a 1 acer empty lot that i do every 4-6 weeks and use a old school 42 inch garden tractor because the stander doesn't have the power to cut through foot tall weeds, but thats not what it was designed to do, so i understand

04-05-2010, 10:13 PM

Alpha Property

i'm planning on getting one over the summer for it i think, i want a 8.2 V but i think it may be a lil much for the truck, 99% of my stuff is residential, and i think the v would be a big help for stacking on small front lawns

06-19-2010, 11:30 AM
nice equipment, you have the same toro push mower as me, great machine, very reliable. Why don't you put sides on the dump box of your chevy? looks like its getting full fast
