Looks like you have a nice setup. The truck is solid, and it will give you years of great service still. Are you looking at the Cheetah?

Ya I looked and used a cheetah probably 4 or 5 times great machine but I just don't have the cash yet and I don't have enough credit to finance half of one without a co-signer. So im stuck using my Tiger cub until I have the cash.

It looks like your Tiger Cub is mint tho, I would stick with that for now. If you are mechanically inclinded I have seen a lot of used stuff going cheap right now.

It is mint, low hours well maintained, tires still look new, it just doesn't seem to cut fast enough anymore, still cuts excellent and stripes well. I've seen alot of used stuff going cheap but im not interested in any of it. Only things I buy used are trucks and plows and that's because I don't enough work yet to justify spending 50,000 on new diesel. The mower I can 100% justify whether it be 6299 like my tiger cub was back in 05 or 11,000 like the cheetah I want now is. I know what I get from just cutting grass 7 months of the year and the cheetah would pay for itself several times every season.

got some windbreakers/rain coats embroidered a few weeks back.





winter coat.

here's some stripes from last week.





here's part of job I've been at for a month, the job included clearing the brush, removing the garden, and anything else in the way and installing a 4x50' walkway, 2x30' retaining wall and a rock garden lined with cobble stones, weeding the patio by the pool area, and by the house, transplanting a few plants, weeding a bed and removing mulch and installing stone, and bringing in a few yards of topsoil to fix a part of the yard.

here's part of one of the beds I had to weed and remove the mulch from

and another part


wall done




walkway started



and done



I still have to line it with cobblestones and sweep it in but it's all laid down

the customer is extremely pleased with the huge transformation so far. before she would never go over to this side of her yard, and the gate at the end of the walkway hadn't been opened in nearly 10 yrs. now she will use it almost everyday in the warmer months.
