Im pretty sure its the regular. Its dans, not mine but i know its knot the advantage. Its a great mower accept for when the grass is wet.

Ok thats what I thought too. Thanks. I have a Scag TC with the advantage and it cuts really nice. It doesnt bog down but if it is really wet and the grass is hasnt been cut regular every week (mainly during spring when the grass grows alot) then it clumps the grass up when it mows but otherwise it does great.

the viking is a 15 kaw with a sulky and it handles just fine. I prefer the viking over the turf tracer. The stats say it is not faster but it definentaly is a mph or 2 faster. The handling and maneuverability's is excellent.

I love it. It has a 15 kawi i am prity sure. But ya it handles the sulky great. Last summer i think i cleaned the deck out once it never gets clogged. Hardly ever bogs down. I would buy another one in a heart beat. I think the viking is the best mower out there besides the Wright Stander. But even then they are very close. I would actually buy a viking over the wright just cause its cheeper. any questions just ask i hope this helped you

you need to stop hatin on the teens.

I know plenty of kids that have 20k to spend on a skid steer. I have a kid i know thats 15 cant even drive and has paid for a whole fleet of skidsteers and dump trucks that he paid for with cash $$$$. The kid has 5 large tandem dumps, and 5 bobcat skid steers. He started out with mowing and then sold all his accounts and is moving into lot clearing and construction prep and masonry, and landscaping as well. kids are way underestamated these days.

i am not bs ing you. his parents are broke as shi* and thats the reason why he started his company to help out the fam. The kid has 100,000$ in the bank no joke and sold 400 mowing accounts to a local company. He also sold his black top devision to 1-800-blacktop. No joke, this kid definentaly has all this equipment. now he is at the point were hes cutting out all the shitty parts of this industry and bought all this equipment ( the trucks and skids) to start up his lot clearing and construction prep company. ill ask him to get me any info that available online about his company.

nnj18...why dont you be the bigger man, stop dragging this out and let these kids tell their story however it is they want to tell it. I happen to believe them, I have a buddy whos brother was obsessed with porsche's when he was a kid and swore he would have one when he turned 16...he started saving when he was like 8 and on his 16th birthday he handed Leith Porch here in Cary a bank check for a used Carrera 4S....I wasnt like that...spent it as it came but if you want something bad enough its not that hard to get it. Just grow up a little bit, your not impressing anyone by shooting everyone down...we have all had a little help from someone along the way, one way or another...heck your 18 right? How did you get all your nice new equipment?

I see all this nice equipment but no real pictures of work done by it. The mowers look like they were bought either new or slightly used, but kept in decent shape by mowing maybe 20 yards a day.

Now the skid just adds icing to the cake, its all dirty and looks like it has worked hard every day in its life.

we all could have bought our own trucks. In cincinnati almost every parent here buys there kids their first car. Its just the way it is. I would have been glad to go out and buy a truck but my parents wouldnt let me because they wanted to buy me a truck. I dont know what kind of family you come from or what your parents finantial situation is but around here most parents have plenty of money.

And btw all our buisnesses here are lagit, atleast everyone on this thread form nati is insured, liscenced and pays taxes. Just give it up you made yourself look like an ass and on top of it all your wrong.

Hey nnj18, I think that you are just jelous of us, because our parents provide for us. You probably had to put all of your money starting up a company, and now you can't spend anything on the ladies. Also why would you finance your mowers? That's just not smart.
I got to agree and we've all worked just as hard as you have to get where we have, just cause some people have done it faster than others doesnt mean nobody can do it cause you cant..

And if it makes you feel better, I pretty much failed at lawn care, couldnt get anywhere, so I dropped out and got into something I really enjoyed..

It is easy makeing money in Lawncare nick it is like all profit except for gas and ur equipment stuff and ya there is more to it than that you just have to work really Hard. I dont know how people make it in the tree buisness cause how many people need trees trimmed or cut up and how offen. Mowing is something you do weekly and its dependable grass doesnt stop growing completly

Yeah, I am trying but it seems like I keep getting sucked back in and I hate it! I got a guy(my boss) wanting to become a sub cause I bought a ztr and he said he'll be sending some work my way, when I want to get away from Lawncare and into clearing, brush mowing and pond work. And I work for a landscape grading company, so I am cutting grass once a week including taking care of the accounts I've still got..

It may build credit but you dont have to use credit to buy something, ever thought of that? Ever thought of buying something straight up, its called lowering your overhead so it doesnt cost as much when its sitting.. Therefore both have pro's and con's, its personal preference..
