Mowing a road front business using a murray lawn tractor w/deck removed to pull a running commercial walk behind. Looks like walk behind must have messed up trans so murray is pulling. As I drive by I noticed his Ford topaz parked there with some large home made looking trailor looking like they were on there last legs also. :cool:

If someone mowing commercially cannot manage their funds sufficiently to keep their equipment in working order, they deserve to operate like this. This is a general statement. I realize that that particular person may have had some extenuating circumstances that placed him in that position.

I see property owners doing the mowing and so forth themselves quite often.
The equipment they use is sometimes not fit to use on a home lawn.
My point is this though, these are owners not landscapers.
Who did you see?

And the point of this is what? You don't like the fact he drives a Ford Topaz?

Ive started to notice a similar thing with people attaching two or three push mowers to the back of their lawn tractor with ropes or chain. Its always ammusing for me to watch :confused: . I know of at least 3 people in my town that do it.

Come on guys, let's get our below-sub-par automobiles straight. It's a Mercury Topaz. The Ford counterpart is a Tempo.

This is an excellent example of why everyone should carry a digital camera, every day.
