it does pretty good, if there is ice nothing is going to work that well. I had one driveway that was up a steep hill and was slick under it, def need to get some beet juice in the tires to help with traction!

Yeah, it's the byproduct of processed beats. It weighs more than water and won't freeze. Then it's safer than calcium (won't kill vegetation if a tire gets slit) and is non-corrosive

Well the irrigation side of business is starting to expand. This past week I got another customer that wants me to fix a bunch of heads in their yard and also expand their system. Im going to be adding about 6 new heads to get a section of the yard that doesn't get any water. The first complaint was heads that were 4" below ground so when they pop up, it just waters the grass around the head. I replaced the 4" I-20 Rotors with new 6" heads and im currently in the process of replacing every spray head.

Before:


Difference in heads:


After:

Some more mowing pics. These are from my grandpas farm, started taking care of it a few weeks ago. It was over grown so I mowed it with the tractor then went back through with the hustler and got it looking better









Here is my mowing set up. One mower does it all!
