KS_Grasscutter Picture Thread

Took some pics the other day, so I thought I'd post them all up here.

First, stripes from my new Grasshopper:


New 223 Grasshopper. 52", with 2 bag collection system:


A couple trailer pics:



Rig (no, it WASN'T fun pitchforking out all the clippings at the landfill):

About 3 weeks ago. A buddy of mine has a 227/61 with the 3 bag catcher and is fixing to trade it on a 325D or a 335 big block. I don't know how you get by with the 23/61. His bogs down, even side discharging normal growth on level ground... not too impressive. My 223 bogs down a little with the 52", but it aint that bad.

I think now I got a pretty good rig put together. 52" Hopper, 42" Walker, 36" Walker on some days, and 21" Deere. Use the Hopper on 85% or so of my lawns, then everything else on the rest. Getting kinda fat, really should skip the 36" Walker and just use the 21"... but that would suck...a lot.

I thought u had a brand new Walker. Did you sell it to get a used one. Looks like you have a good variety. Now get a dump insert.

Nice rig, and sweet trailer. . . yeah I have the same problem with clippings/leaves - having to drop them in the bed, and shovel them out at the dump lol.

You must have a lot of open lawns - a 52" zt would be way too big for many of my accounts.
