I've only put about 3.5 hours on it, but so far so good. It rides really well and has a great cut with the ICD deck.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

it's easy when you're solo. the same setup every day. the 21" pushmower is only loaded when needed. i think i have only 1 account where i use it at this point. i also have an edger now in the back of the truck as well not shown in the picture.

rounddown oops i mean roundup.

i'm not a full service company. i don't do fert and squirt and i don't really trim shrubs or do landscaping. i have done a very few shrub jobs and mulch jobs. there's just not much of a market for major landscaping jobs where i live. most people do the landscaping and shrub trimming themselves on the weekends here.

what do you do on hilly property's do you use the push???? Thanks for the pics , nice set up , also do you use the backpack blower on every property or do you have a handheld , we normally just use the handheld for smaller prop , and the backpack blowers for bigger ones.

For either a one or two-man crew, I feel the most efficient setup is:
*One 48" - 52" walk-behind mower w/detachable sulky
*One 32" - 36" walk-behind mower w/detachable sulky
*One dedicated string trimmer
*One 2-stroke powerhead with string trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer, and pole pruner attachments
*One blower per crew member

Conversely, the equipment above would do best on turf areas under 1 acre. Larger properties would be better served with a larger deck mowing it.

Hey LandFakers, how does that toolbox setup on your trailer work with your turning/reversing radius for backing? I have been looking into putting one on mine but wasnt sure how it would work out. Have not tested as of yet.
