it is a start. sometimes you have to have used equipment to get going. i was that way. looks good keep your work looking good and you can get some new equipment.

Those machines look like money makers to me. Wise not to burden yourself with to much debt starting out. Your money will find enough places to slip through your fingers.Wish you well on your venture.:canadaflag:

That is some great starting equipment and as above mentioned smart not to get yourselfinto debt starting out. I would now focus on getting commercial handhelds to replace those craftsman ones you have now. Good luck and God Bless!

Those are good machines for just starting. Not many people start out with both a ztr and wb.

Nice stuff, used equipment makes more money especially when your starting out. At least for me it did.

Yeah, everything runs great...If I could just get the deck level on the z-master. It is level side to side, but the back is lower than the front. If I am correct, I think the front should be a little lower?

yes that is correct...it will give you a better cut and better striping. try finding a height guide online to your mower...that might help you solve the problem. however, your equipment looks great...wish i started out with a pair of nice mowers like that. good luck!

Here are some more stripping pics. We mowed these yards Friday. It rained off and on all day.
I finally got the deck adjusted, and I think the z-master is stripping alot better!

The only yard that has fertilizer is the one with dark green grass and diagnal stripes, the home owner does that himself. One has irrigation and all of them have aerated and had preemergent applied by us but nothing else.

Stripes are looking great but i would work on a more defined edge on beds.

Thank you I agree. That was before I mowed and edged with the trimmer. i probably should have done that before I mulched and took pictures but I forgot! Thanks for noticing though!
