Nope, just using the eXmark that's shown in the first page. Last time I touched a reel mower was back in '89, and it was one of those antique ones that I got from my great grandfather.

The furthest north I go is Ripon. Route spans from Patterson to Oakdale (west to east) and from Ripon to Turlock (north to south). It's roughly a 30 mile radius that I cover from our office in Modesto.
Yea Stockton is paradise, or maybe the complete opposite lol.
Do you work in Hilmar?

We have pest control accounts in Hilmar, and I've advertised there, but never picked up any lawn accounts out that way.

I think one of the companies out that way has their shop across the street from Hilmar Cheese. I don't recall the name of it though. Also, I think Grover works over there too. Wouldn't surprise me. They're really big, and service a ton of locations throughout our county.

Looks like you're cutting a lot off in one pass. I try to cut only about 1/3 of the height at once.

Cutting that much in one pass isn't my regular routine fortunately. That lawn I was cutting was just way overgrown compared to how it should've been. It got skipped during the previous week because I couldn't get in the backyard. I figured I'd try cutting it down in one shot to see how this mower would handle it, and it did a great job. So I took the pic at that time just to show what this mower was capable of. I don't recommend doing that on a daily basis though. Haha
