Doing those is way harder than it looks. If it's not even, it'll stick out like a sore thumb, as the top is against the sky. Nice job!

Absolutely.
When working on "normal" hedges, you can see what you're doing while you're working. With something that tall, you need to stand back and look from a distance to be sure you're getting everything even. It doesn't help that the ground has a dip in it too which can throw off the top if not paying attention.


Thanks.

Still have to upload the pics of the hour meter, but I just turned over 300 hours on my Toro SR4 that I bought July 15 2012 (see post #14 in this thread)

Picked up a new Toro TimeMaster last week to add to the mix.





Shown: Ferris 36" dual hydro walk behind, Toro 30" TimeMaster, Toro 21" Super Recycler (one of two SR4s shown)













Size comparison:








And hot damn - if I need to, they all FIT!

That looks like a great low overhead, low easy maintenance, high profit set up right there. I like it

Great to see someone else that buys as needed, and not worried about getting as fast as they can. I to have a few homeowner pieces of equipment, but its not always the equipment, if you have the know how. Great thread.

Thanks. I may not have everything I want, but for the most part I have everything I need, and I'll keep plugging away until I do get everything I want.
It's been an interesting couple of years.
