      I will snap one tomorrow. Thanks.

      No Im baffled. After I adjust the rods and get the tension back on the belts it works for about 3 weeks or so. Then slowly its as if the belts stretch again to the point where I have to adjust the tension again. Once a month Im spinning down the little tension bolts on the rods. I thought it might be normal. Oh well. I want a Grandstand 40". Need to save my pennies I guess.

      Yes Tbar which I love.

      mwalz may I ask you a question about your belt drive Toro? Are you constantly having to adjust the travel on the traction rods to get it more responsive? Probably once a month? I see you pull a sulky also. I am always adjusting those darn things to keep it responsive.

      I start at $35 up to 10,000 sq ft and go up from there. You would be great with starting at $30. I am full time with insurance and taxes and stuff so you could be cheaper, but don't work for free.

      Thanks! One question i just thought of, what do you charge for a 1/4 acre lot? I haven't got to ask anyone around the area here so i was curious. I would do $25 or $30 depending on how difficult it is to actually cut.
