That makes sense. Double the work load, less overhead. I forget there's other factors sometimes. Its been a long week.
There's nothing wrong with running old Iron. I've got a snapper that's been re-powered 3 times. Front wheels, 2 sets of belts and 2 drive disk per motor. The hourly breakdown on that thing is pretty low haha
