We also grabbed another Vantage this past Spring. This is a 52" one, and although we weren't really looking to buy, it was a leftover and the price was really good so we went ahead and did it.

Each one has a use. Most of the time the stander is much more productive, but it is also heavier and is at a disadvantage on steep slopes.

Nice set up. Like the Ford...I guess because you are doing snow you keep the bobcat busy. Are you still balancing both careers? If so how is that going?

Hey! Were are you from in Wisconsin? I could only make out WI on your equipment. My business is out in East Troy about 40 min from Milwaukee. Awesome Ford trucks & equipment!

Turf Tracer Question

How do your like your 36" turf tracer? I am thinking about adding one to the fleet this coming season.

My question is how well does the mower mow the strip of grass in between the street and sidewalk. I have attempted this with larger walk behinds and have scalped the turf in the past and wanted to know what your experience has been.

I really like all of the equipment, you have got a really nice collection.

Thanks,
Tacoforeveryone

Lawn Care Trailer

What size is your lawn care trailer at the beginning of this thread, I'm looking to upgrade from a single axel 6x12', to a longer length tandem axel. Is that a 16' footer or 18'. I am wanting to be able to fit three exmarks on it like you have there. Right now I got a 36 and a 60 turf tracer, I'm thinking whatever size you have there would fit an additional stander or ztr especially if I turn my 36 sideways. Thanks, Steve.
