New ( to me ) Commercial Mower

Got my first piece of commercial equipment today.
A Bobcat classic 36 with grass gobbler and jungle wheels. Up until now I have been using homeowner equipment so I was excited. It handles way different than my 33's but after a few lawns I got the hang of it. Have not used the jungle wheels yet I'll have to practice in the back yard a bit first

You will probably need to reduce the size of your picture to 800 pixels wide.

I got home today after mowing and played on the Jungle Wheels in my back yard .... AWESOME!!!!!! This is going to save me so much freakin time ... lol
I know most of you guys this is all old stuff but I popped my cherry on the jungle wheels today. mowed my back yard didn't go out of 3rd but my yard is small. I am still trying to adjust the pistol grips so I can zero turn without having them so far away from the grips.

everything old is new again, most guys on this site have never been on jungle wheels, they all went straight to riders, or use smaller mowers.

The contingent of guys here using that size mower with a sulky is actually rather small.
