Alright good to hear, I like eXmark in general but my Lazer isn't up to par with my Scag in any way shape or form. So I'm glad to hear that the new ones hold some improvements.

I like all his scalping on your property around that stump.....Looked through most of the thread over the past few rain days out here in Wisconsin, 3/4" today.....looks like I might drowned on Tuesday, considering....Monday looks like another heavy rain.......One question for you GP, if you guys are mowing 5 days a week what do you do when you get 3-4 days of rain in a row.....

noticed in your signature that you have 2 rather new JD lawn tractors, why did you get the tractors instead of another zero turn?

There are several reasons, the biggest are weight for spring time cutting, dethatching, and baggers are cheaper a lot cheaper. The other reason is they both get blowers on in the winter time. And I always had tractors with the old style JD's because they didnt hold a hill like the new ones do. I wouldnt keep them around if they didnt get blowers in the winter. So hours add up like crazy so I keep replacing them just for the winter time use.

Panic lol, For the most part tho we are forced to work through the rain if its spotty or not very hard rain, When we do lose a few days tho we start at 7 and work till about 8pm to try and catch up..
