I am beat but the way things are growing it is really awesome! I am tickled right now!
I couldn't imagine working 7 days a week, good for you though. Is that mostly solo or with employee's?

Solo. I cannot afford to pay someone all the time. I would like to be able to but just ins't enough money in it yet. We are doing well with me being solo this year but this is the first year it is paying me to be in business.

hey guys i got a problem. My blade on my hustler won't come off. the bolt seems like it is stuck. have any of you had this problem? if so how did you get the bolt out? i always hand tighten my blade bolts. it is weird because the other one comes off fine. any help would be great.

You don't use an impact wrench/ air tools for your blades? I couldn't change blades without mine. That is the only way I get my blades on and off, you may have to go to the mower shop for that without air tools. I had the same problem with my ex, I broke down and bought a small air compressor and impact drill.

The dealer I use has a program that if you buy your blades from them they will sharpen and change your blades regularly as part of the deal.

I have not had to try to change a blade in almost a year.....

Depending on how far away from Z'hills you are, you might drag your Z up here and have them get it off for you.
