Those tanks look pretty tough. I was interested in one but have no local dealer. Nice looking machines.

The polaris colt in the background doesn't look as goodas the tanks!!!!!:dizzy:

When I get mowing up here, I will take a pic of them on the trailer. Probably will only be 3 mowers loaded up, I send the crew out with a 60", a 72" and the 36", I will keep one of the 60"ers home for me to do some jobs with it around home base. We have the one I will keep here, with a hitch, to areate, collection system, might put a electric fert spreader on also. We cut about 85% of our jobs 30 miles away. I will team up with them if they fall behind (rain etc.) or on the bigger acreage jobs. Our biggest at present is about 6 acres, but bidding on a 11.07 acre job.

I have one employee, working with me right now, my son-in-law, (he is the crew leader)we are doing spring clean-ups. Will be down with them in abot 2 weeks, we are busy getting the southern one's done, there about 1.5-2 weeks ahead of us. I will hire at least 1 more full time, and maybe 2, when the grass starts growing good. When that happens, I am usaully bidding jobs, fertilizing, making payroll out etc. We (they) worked alot of saturdays last year, I would like to get away from that, employee's have lives also, LOL. As far as a w/b, in my situation, I would probably never buy a new one, But I find there seems to be a need for them once and a while, we had a 48 hydro last year, may have put 15 hours on if that. You will find that you can put a 60"ztr rider, just about anywhere you can put a 48" w/b, at least thats what we have found out. We use are (new) frankincub, (for this year so far) for dethatching the lawns, to loosen up the leaves that got embedded by the snow alot, then we take the old 60"er and suck them up with the collection system. But the new cub/lesco w/b's with their new handlebars looks nice.

MTD is the mother of both, lesco, and cub commercial.

MTD has nothing to do with Lesco. Cub(MTD) and Lesco got together with CTP (commercial turf products) to build there machines for them. CTP builds the machines, Cub and Lesco just slap the stickers on.

so if its ctp, that builds the cubs/lesco's, thats good news, because everyone on here thinks their built with mtd parts, thus making them junk, thanks for clarifying this.

Yes, CTP does build both LESCO and Cub Commercial units at their facility in Streetsboro, Ohio. MTD has bought out LESCO's portion of the business but still produces equipment for LESCO. CTP (owned by MTD) manfactures all of their own fabricated parts (some outsourced) but use none of MTD's parts. They are engineered by CTP's own engineers who ONLY do commercial equipment. I hope this clears up some confusion.

Thank You All ! Now I understand. I thought that mtd sold there line to Lesco but know they didnt now. Thanks for the help and
nice 6x12 trailer. Can we see some pics of the Big One with mowers
loaded and ready to go once you get time. I have been making multiple trips to the dealer to see if he has any new walk-behinds
(hydro) with the floating deck. He has sold the 48'' rider and the 60'' ztr. What are the 60'' runing price wise? That 54'' walk-behind is looking very nice. Hope we can see some cub stripes, or the mower in action once ya get time.
