Decided to mow my own lawn
I have just under and acre
So I went out to Lowes ( I know I'll catch grief for that here) but I had a 10% off coupon
Bought a John Deere Z225 - was on sale for $2300 and with the coupon came to $2070
also bought the Echo PAS split boom system with Trimmer, edger and pole Pruner - Just about $600 with the attachments and discounts
Mowed my lawn in 20 min!!!
