Hey guys, I'm 17 years old, and progressing every year! I live in the Greenville area of South Carolina and this is some of my work. I plan to upload more pictures of my work regularly and please feel free to comment. Let me know what you think!

Final set of pictures for now. The third picture is of the hand tools and my truck. I also have a set of Stihl HS-75 hedge trimmers as well. The fourth and fifth pictures are of a bed that I edged and then pine strawed last week.

Casey, the mower is a 216 I think. It has a ton of power, and the quadracut is great! Best mower I've had!

Does it have the thumb drive speed control? I've heard that it will wear out your thumbs quick. Your opinion?

Yes it has the paddle drive for the thumb. It does give your fingers a work out, but adjusted quickly. The paddle is adjustable in positions so in my opinion, it isn't bad. Also, mine has the blade stop feature which I use frequently to empty the bag.

Thats cool man, I really didn't want to drop $800 on the HRX for the amount of push mowing I do. I have always liked Honda mowers, but I have never operated one with the paddle speed control, so that worried me alittle. That Ranger looks clean. When I first started landscaping, I had a 93 ranger. I still have it, but it has a cracked head, whoops lol.

Yeah mine is a '97. My dad is giving me his '08 Ram 1500 in the next year. I use it to pull our 20' landscape trailer when I need to haul more than one mower.

It's been a while! I'm staying busy, juggling school, mowing and travel soccer! Here are some equipment updates as well as a few pictures of some stripes!

And here is a picture of the stripes made by the eXmark Turf Tracer. The heat is really frying the grass here, but the Zenith Zoyzia that I push mowed is irrigated, where as the section I mowed with the eXmark is not.

Not mocking, I started out with a exmark walk just as bad as that one:waving:

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement! The eXmark is an older model, we replaced both hyraulic motors, tires and did a basic tune up and it was good to go. It runs great, and is mechanically sound. It has a relatively new motor on it and right at 1000 hours, and although the paint isn't the greatest, it is in good shape. I plan on using it for a while!

I think we all started off with an old, well used-and-abused walk behind of some sorts.

Setup looks good man, you're on your way

Alright guys, here are a few pictures of a residential cleanup I did yesterday. I have been busy lately with cleanups, just been forgetting to take pictures.

And also some updated shots of my setup. The eXmark cleans up really good, and just like that, it's dirty again! The Walker is my uncle's, I get to use it whenever I need it. I'm planning on getting a Walker of my own before the next season and I'm also looking into getting a new 7x14 dual axle trailer before next season!
