I try to stay away from it. It never looks as good if it were dry, it's hard on the equipment, and it can be dangerous ie. sidehilling.

BTW Holy large sig pic!

Never do anything that you don't enjoy doing, but if you have to, charge well for it.

I can finally now mow in the rain with zero hayfield chunk trails and very minimal clumping. It is called a Bravo 25. Blew me away when I demo'ed it in the rain. Place I mowed was tall and wet. Went back 6 days later just a few tell tale clues that it had been wet that day down near the crowns. Told the dealer sorry I'm keeping the demo.

Move smaller account to the rain days hit bigger accounts on the dry days.
