Palat,

I'd go with an exmark, I had a snapper hydro that was amazing, but the service in our area just isnt there. I have 2 toro's but they are belt drive which I hate. My new exmark is going to be the ticket. You should really get rid of that old z mower and upgrade that, I saw it more @ the rental than out cutting.lol.

Gotta find good help too, Franks a good worker, but he just has his own demons. I tried 2 people in his place this year and things really didnt work out. This year I'll try him again, but the everyday pay and borrowing money isnt going to fly.

ecs

I just wanted to suggest to the person who had problems with the ecs...u can adjust the operating tension on the ecs and make it oh so smooth. Too much pressure, and it will hurt. Just look at the setup, you can loosen the tension and make it easier to squeeze. Get it set right and there's no way a pistol will be easier to run.

How do you do that? I want a little more butter and a little less bread on mine.

if you have the speed adjusted to faster then you go, you will always have that pressure. Finding the right speed will reduce most the hand fatigue when it comes to the ECS.

That is just silly to think I would not know that already.

Yah, I have the Turf Tracer HP with ECS and I set the max to slower when I'm cutting in my first passes. Otherwise you're holding the thing back all the time. The only belt drive I eve operated was an older Scag and all the operators looks like a cross between Popeye and an ape because the grips were really stiff and the bars were too low...after a while you'd just start walking like a knuckle dragger, and got huge forearms, lol.
