That makes me feel a lot better....same way here. Happy 4th of July folks. Remember what our freedoms cost and how we've fought for so many things.

Yes, they have their place....and a few of our lawns they might be more efficient, but on the majority, just not a good fit. That being said I might very well take you up on the demo - later on in the "slow season". Whenever that happens....I can't begin to deal with all our work! =(

New baby just arrived. Funny thing is that it broke a rocker and blew one side of the engine after 5.1 hrs. Right back to the dealer for total repair, then two days later the guys got her buried in mud so bad we had to use the truck to get her out.....welcome home, sweetheart! =D

Nice mower

How has everyone done this season and who's ready for the leaves

Not ready for leaves, but ready for a break and some hunting and cold ones!! August sales beat July's ...that NEVER happens. Good year overall - very challenging and probably a little too busy for me to enjoy it as much as I'd like - I'll work on it next season some more. Got some great workers on board that has really helped.

Got quite a bit of overseeding, aeration, and renovation jobs for Sept then a week or more of chipping brush and fallen dead trees. I'm getting nervous it might cut into my hunting time and camping up north. Maybe put someone else in charge for awhile...=D

Good season overall. Interesting second year learning to run business. Looking forward to first leaf season with the Walker. Need to get more lined up. I'm with McFarland, been waiting all year for hunting season.
