Also it doesn't back up hills like a Walker, yes it will back up the hill with no problem, but it pulls a "wheelie" going up a hill, its actually hard to keep the rear wheel on the ground in reverse.
Did you get rid of the walker you had?? Where do you put the grass your sucking up and also what other mowers you got??

Does it get annoying using one hand to turn and the other with the speed on those "walker-style" machines?

You seem to do alot of work for other landscapers. Does it pay well? Also does the tint bother you guys at all while plowing. It would be neat to do mine, but my cousins fiance got busted a little while ago, I think his were like10

Looks good, that diamond plate will look pretty slick compared to the plastic ones. Where do you get all of the stuff for your truck at. Like the Ambers and Chrome
