new larger mower just means I am growing, slowly but surely and requests for estimates are still rolling in.
Though it is an older mower I am very pleased with it. Looks a bit ruff but cuts really nice and starts everytime I have went to get on it.

I went from my trusty Exmark Turf Tracer to a Wright stander this season and I'm loving it. I think a stander is probably your next transition. KEEP the walk behind, though. You'll still need it for hills and such.

Yeah the standers look nice. Hopefully next season I will be ready to move into one.

Check for good deals on here or on your local CL after the season is over. I got my Wright from a guy on the marketplace here.

Nice machine. I'm a big fan of belt drives. Get accustomed to adjusting the belts! I think this is where those who love them and hate them differs - those who do and those who don't know how to adjust them properly. Belt drive adjustments take a sort of "feel" and I strongly suggest you adjust it to where your comfortable. You should be able to pull it back while it's in gear ... you need to find that "neutral" sweet spot. Keep the brakes tight enough where it will stop, but not so tight that the wheels lock up instantly either. Like it said it's a adjustment you need to "feel" for.... The good news is at the end of the year you should have forearms bigger than the hulk!

Once belt drives are properly adjusted they are GREAT machines. Before I bought mine new I looked on craigslist and almost every single one I went out to look at was not adjusted properly. I'd say about 20% of the people who operate them actually know how to adjust them properly! Any questions just message me! Good luck with your mower!
