Barely making it out alive....


Fortunately I have a buddy that has a place not too far from where we were working that let us dump the snow at his place. Made it a lot easier.

Where did you find your Shindaiwa cutoff saw?! They have not been made for years! Looks brand new.

And, nice work and 6.0!

Hey I have two 36in Wright Standers and they are amazing additions to our rig. I picked one of them up, it's a little older, but it only had 500 hours on it and was in pretty good condition for 1500 bucks. I've been using it every day for spring clean ups , and it stripes really well

Thanks! I got the cut off saw from my Echo dealer. He had it sitting on the shelf for a couple years. Made me a sweet deal on it.

I love my Standers. Actually just added another one to the fleet. I FINALLY got a 36" after all these years. Guy had it on craigs list for $1,000 said it had a blown motor but had new hydro pumps last summer (with paperwork). I picked it up for $800 and it did run although it had a chunk missing out of the block and sprayed oil everywhere. Cleaned it up, little paint and slapped a brand new Kawasaki FS-481V on it and it's ready to go. I replaced a few other things on it (bushings, belts, pulleys, etc) and I have about $2,300 into it including what I bought the mower for. Sent the trusty old Lesco 36" down the road for $1,500.

Nice job cleaning it up!!! It looks just like the one I picked up. The only issue I have had is those tiny drive tires, put some bigger ones on and it will handle a ton better.

You can pick up some good deals on equipment if you are willing to do a little work

I am in the process of selling the Walker (if anyone is interested) and have already replaced it with a 52" Scag TigerCat. So far I love the machine, it's really speeding up our productivity and I think it cuts/stripes almost just as good as the Walker, at twice the speed. Just have a steel Grass Gobbler on it now but it will be getting a vac system before leaf season.
