Can the tires be "upgraded" to maybe 20" 10" on the 40"?
Isn't Gravely coming with a 36" with fat tires this year?
Yes gravely is coming out with a 36 in the "spring". Idk anything about it's specs other than 36 pro stance

If the deck on the 40" hangs out a bit more from the tires than the deck on the 36" that would do it for me. Having a little extra hang between the 52" and 48" makes a difference when cutting around objects.

I hate using the 48... as a matter of fact....I always personally use the older 52. for that same reason..

Worse is when someone else uses the 48" and ends up running it inside smaller circle beds repeatedly, knocks the mulch down/out and gives you that funky look to the circle bed.

Extra hang saves time. Even if just a couple minutes per lawn that adds up big time.

48" vs 52" in the ferris is the same way…the extra trim ability from the hang over is so much better.

by the way i really like the name grass butler. is that just an online name, or is that the name of your business?

do you were tuxedo Tshirts with the bow tie graphics on them as company uniforms?

Ha HA!! Yes Thank you...Came up with the name... my trailers run
Grass Butler is my lawn maintenance business. www.grassbutler.com

Wash Butler is my Pressure Washing business. www.washbutler.com

No no No... its too hot in Florida for cotton T shirts.... moisture wicking shirts down here... but yes... a tux screen printed shirt and a derby hat would be fitting... this is the logo on the trailers.. etc.. ok i tried to upload a file.. but it was being difficult.. Here is a video of the pressure washing rig... sign around the 1 minute mark .. my lawn maintenance trailers run the same signage ( air brake ) with both brands on the back...
