My new mower:
A J.D. Quik-Trak 657 54" deck.
I love the feel of standing while mowing for a change from always sitting on the z's and my front mount.

Hey Z
The Quik Trak has been a great addition to our mower lineup. Standing while mowing has been a welcome position compared to always sitting on the other mowers for so many years.

The GPH fuel consumption is very efficient - maybe 3/4 - 1 gallon per hour. It's small and compact for tight mowing spots on the small to medium size lawns.

The cut is great just like the other deere mowers with the 7 iron deck. In tall, thick grass I sometimes slow a little to have the engine catch up.

Mowing steep slopes was weird at first, but then I got use to it - and try to go straight up and down if I can. So I'm very happy with the Q.T.

That's good to hear u like the Q. T. Been thinking about getting a stander but idk if I want to. Everything looks really clean tho. When you got your trailer lettered, how do u feel it help with picking up new customers.

Thanks!

I have to say the trailer lettering is kind of a rolling billboard. I owned a 20' enclosed before this one which also had lettering.

I had my sign guy use the same logo from the old trailer, to the new one - it's unique and easily recognizable.

I try to keep the trailer clean and presentable, and hope the lettering will not fade too fast.

The best thing is that even from a distance people know it's us - because of the logo on the trailer.

I honestly don't know if I get more calls from it? IMO - it's important to be seen and recognized season after season, and the trailer helps alot!
