i will never forget that day, I thought my wife was gonna actually kill me. She woke up and said "go get a nice mower mow a few yards with it so we don't have to push mow anymore". Went to John Deere shop as my buddy ran it and looked at the $2000 to $3000 mowers. When he asked me what I was gonna use it for he said "You will tear these up quick, you need this one". 757 for like $8000. I see everyone here using Grasshopper so I told him for that much I will just get what the guys use. I went to the Hopper place and asked for the nicest mower they had, it was put on my trailer and I came home with a payment...1.9%. My wife said "Why did you buy a $6000 mower?", I laughed and told her a little more than double, for a split moment I think I saw actual fire blazing from her eyeballs...lol, mower was more than the truck I was driving..lol. First job $700 a week, gravy from there.... no more pushing.
