My ricer sounds more like a crotch rocket. The owner of one of my dealers wanted me to rev it in town because he hasn't heard a vtec in awhile, the sound bounced off every building hahaha. It's only like a 5 inch racing exhaust though :-).

I always like the "what do I do now?". One time I kinda went off, you have been working for me about 500 hrs now, you tell me? We mow, trim, and blow. You trimmed, I am mowing, so what does that leave?

I ain't no rookie and you'll rarely see me running my blower full throttle on hard surfaces, my Husky 580 is loud as hell and will rip up the crack-seal if I do that

You guys totally missed the biggest rookie mistake....cutting the whole lawn but forgot to drop the deck (on a zero turn). I had a guy cut a 3 acre lawn with the deck in the transport position.

Had a guy that had been with our family business for 10 years do it on a 15 acre field.

I have done in many times. I never did it on anything that big, and normally realize the lawn doesn't look right after a few passes. Where I have done all or most of the lawn, I try reassure myself that the lawn needed to be double anyway.
