Gearing up for 2010

2009 was a good year for A Clear Difference Lawn Service. I was able to buy a laptop, a blackberry and an ipod for my daughter. Oh yeah and a few things for me. I decided to post a few pics of my rig, my shop and my new (for me) truck. Before you start ragging on me about the troy-built 21", I'm going to announce that I only have two small lawns that I cannot mow with my ztr and I could not justify the expense of a commercial 21". Still left to buy is a back up mower. I am thinking of going with a walk behind. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated and I hope everybody has a safe and profitable year.

Nice little setup you got there! You really cut 70 accounts by yourself with that?

Very nice set up. Def get a backup mower of some sort. I would go with a Walk Behind because you can get them fairly cheap. Keep up the good work.

Yes, I do. I have a really good grouping with 48 in one subdivision and no account further than 8 miles from my house.

I'm liking the blacked out Gravely. How do you like that cordless impact? How many volts is that model?

I love the cordless impact - one of the better purchases I've made. It is an 18 volt Hitachi. I like it because it is short so you don't haave to jack the mower very high to change blades - but it still has plenty of power. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone who needs an impact.

I put 20x10x10 tires on it .I painted the wheels black - I do it to all my mowers I guess I just like black rims. Here is the thread I posted when I first got the mower.
