Thanks for reminding me of that.
My wife said it too, albeit less kindly "Don't be an idiot."
But in fairness to me, I started looking at the quasi commercial, about $6400 before tax, then looked at a lower end full blown commercial, about 7800 before tax, and now I am looking at a nice commercial, about 8500 or 8600 before tax.
My buddy, who has mown professionally for over 10 years, says it will take me 9 hrs of ztr time to completely mow our place once I get used to the machine. Since some of the areas are only mowed every two weeks, I figure about 120 to 150 hrs per year. At 55 yrs old, a good machine could last me the rest of my life.
As you said, I doubt I will make this purchase again. And do not want to be thinking about what I could have purchased.
Thanks for the reminder.
And by the way, nice picture of the dogs.
