Took 3 Jasper trannies to get one of my trucks back. The first 2 failed before it was returned. Not the only one with a story like that.

stolen truck and trailer

We had a truck and trailer with equipment stolen from a jobsite in Ypsilanti. 2002 Ford F 350 Crew Cab. White with Superior Lawn Logo all over the truck. There is a Bee Safe Logo (which is a BEE on both sides of the bed)
Trailer was an 20 foot open trailer with 2 Exmark Mowers on it.

If anyone sees or here's anything please let me know. $1000 Reward.
Unfortunately our insurance isn't covering as we didn't have full coverage on this vehicle.

So what're you guys thinking?? Done mowing next week once the decks get dropped one more time?? Im sick of skipping em already......and this was the first real week with skips, and most I was getting grass only because I had dropped a notch today.

Thinking next week I will mow EVERYTHING I plan on keeping one more time, give them final invoices for the mowing and go into full on leaves. Im ready, having a schedule is starting to suck, Id rather just have a list of to dos.

Grass is growing like crazy over here. Leaves are very slow falling. No official killing frost and according to the local weather guy the lake is too warm to give us any cold temps for quite some time. AND it will give us lake effect rain instead of snow. Which is a good thing.
