Nice stuff for a 15 year old!

Did you buy that lazer with your own money?

How do you get from point A to point B if you can't drive yet?


Good luck,
Ryan

GLS- All was paid for by me, only $2,000 had to be financed.

My parents take me and the trailer and drop me off at the lawns. I try to have at least 2 lawns per stop to cut down on unload/load time. We make it work, lol.

Good for you. That's how I did it for a year or two, except I didn't have a nice mower like that:)

But, after two years of work, we were able to afford some nicer equipment. This is what we have now...nothing great, but it's a big step up from what we started with.

Nice stuff.But why does the w.b. look awfull like a Exmark,especially with the k at the end of the tank.

Oh yeh...impressive trash can...but why is it on top of the mower

Thats the Trac-Vac. You can oly see the 55gallon Rubbermaid trash can but on the other side of the mower is a 6hp(I think) Briggs with an impeller. It works out great. Ill see if i've got a pic.

Do you get mirrors with that? Just kidding. Nice setup for a young guy. Going to buy the same mower. How much? and do you like it?

Exmark was $8,798 including taxes $8,300 without. I like the mower but I've only been able to mow one lawn. Right now theres an inch of ice outside.

None are closer than the first one....I'll try to snap some tomorrow of everything that has been changed on the 04's. I really like that the controls are located on the gas tank now.

Very very GOOD. I'm proud of you. All the hard work is paying off. Keep it up. You've come a long way from the old mower.

how do you like the collection system on the walk behind, is it hard to work with since it gets in your line of sight?

TO GLS HOW GOOD IS THAT EZ-DUMPER I WENT ONE BUT

lawnpro2 -- the ezdumper is great. Saves a ton of time and labor. I would strongly suggest one (whether it be ezdumper, truckcraft, etc.; i've only had experience w/ez). If you run a search there is quite a bit of info on here.

Sorry to change the original topic:)

Ill try to answer everyone's questions...

The Engine is mounted higher than what is recommended. This is to allow the engine to be mounted closer to the mower. If mounted any lower, the blower houseing would hit the wheel of the mower.

You eventually get used to driving with a huge trash can in your line of view. It was real hard at first to have straight stripes, but now, no problem.

We have about 12 accounts and counting, hoping for 15 this year. Its very hard to fit in school and 12-15 accounts and keep A's and B's.

How do I afford the Exmark? SAVE SAVE SAVE- This is what a year of saving and a little financing and $0 from parents will give you.

Ill post pics of the new trailer tomorrow if I have time under "New Equipment Pics"
