Just to keep everyone updated, today I removed the old choke cable from the Turf Tiger. I should be getting a new cable and assembly in a few days along with a couple of other small items. I know, it's really dirty. I will clean her up soon! Here are the pictures. - Mike

Okay guys here is an update. I got a 2008 5 x 10 trailer. Here are pictures of it and some pictures of other equipment that I have. I also did take the turf tiger in for service at the scag dealer. Sorry for the bad picture quality it is from my iPhone. Everything is crammed in the garage so it's sorta messy. Here are the pics! - Mike



Stihl 14" Mini Boss with a Craftsman 18" behind it.



Stihl BR420C Magnum Backpack Blower



Stihl 55R Trimmer



Echo Trimmer ( I don't know the model number, I just got it)



Scott's Push Mower



Honda Snow Blower



Backpack Sprayer (sorry for bad picture)



Two small sprayers and an off brand 14" chain saw.



Craftsman Compressor

I love Turf Tigers, clean her up, and touch up the paint and its good as new. The collection system is a plus too. Throw up those work pictures when you get a chance!

Thanks! Here are some work pictures. These are the only ones that I could find on my computer. Not great stripes but these pictures were taken when I first started my business. I have much better techniques now and my stripes look better. - Mike

The kid in the picture is not me, it's my buddy. And yes, he did get a pair of steel toe boots, instead of those nike's.

The stander was great. The downfall was that it had the fixed deck. I just wanted something with more flexibility. I also wanted something with a vacuum bagger instead of the side bagger. And thanks, I got the PM. - Mike

It's pretty amazing to see stuff like this these day. Most of todays kids are stuck to their iPhones in there bedroom or on the couch. I really hope you continue on your path to success and continue to take your business seriously. I can tell from your pictures that this is a passion for you or you would not take the time to stripe the yards. A lot of people are out just to make a buck, and they don't care what the grass looks like. Keep up the good work, and let your parent's know they have raised you the right way!
