I guess I can see where the bigger/heavier mowers wouldn't work, but (thank God) my Toro tbar 32" works just fine. It doesn't want to get going sometimes at first, but that's it.

My Exmark has the dual belt drive. Once they get wet, can't navigate. Looks like its clearing up a little, I better get to work.

My gas tank on the exmark was 1/3 full of water today. It wouldn't start this am at my first property. I was like WTF!!!! I always tarp the trailer, but I had half a day of downtime due to trying to mow in the rain.
I can't figure out how that much got into a little pin hole.
Well atleast I got a couple properties done today. Guess my raindance went into overkill....
Hope all you bruthas are doin ok.
Peace

Kevin, my old Encore has the dual belts too. I soak them down with belt dressing on rainy days, really helps.

I am finally feeling official in the business. I got an F250 on Friday. It is a 2004 F250 Lauriat with the 5.4L gasser.

I am also gathering equipment to work towards being in the tree side as well. So far my equipment for trees is:

MS 025 x 2
MS 200T
MS 026 (Broken down in the shop)
MS 290
MS 361

HT 131
KM130 W/ HT attachment and extension.

I have a partner with a bobcat and 2 dump trucks.

I just need to be working with the stuff more often. I also have a climber to do the high stuff.

Any of you guys interested in doing trees? I wish I could find some classes but my searches all come up empty.
