Not to much to show. I have to redo all the plants next year. They just had me redo the mulch and clean the beds up. It was really bad before weeds and all kinds of crap, really over grown. So me and 3 guys worked on it for the day just tearing out grass and weeds that grew in the landscape and basically cleaned it up and put down new mulch for this year. The pics are only from one bed there is a total of 6.

You're crazy using that trailer, upgrade to a 16' tandem axle. Why go newer on a Z? Just get something that has lower hours, I saw a 2008 Lazer 29hp kawi liquid cooled 489hrs with tripple bagger online for $7k locally...also once you make some more $ get a dump insert for the truck.

Nice pics and love the Ford.

I have a question for you about the aerators. I have rented different brands of aerators. I have found the ones where the front wheel spans the width of the aerator (I believe it's Ryan) to be more user friendly. Down here in SC their is not a piece of level land to be found. The aerators I have rented from Home Depot have the front tires just like the Blue Birds. These type seem much harder to keep the aerator at an "even keel" so to speak. Are you happy with the Blue Birds? What is the advantage to having a smaller front wheel vs. a larger wheel you can fill with water?

Thanks

The plan for next year is to get a 18ft trailer this ones going up for sale as soon as I am done with mowing and cleanups for the year. I bought this trailer when I just had the walk behind. Then found the rider on craigslist it only has 311 hrs as of today, I bought it with 160 this time last year.

I so far like the bluebirds a lot. I couldn't tell you about the difference of the front wheels. Because I have only ran the bluebirds and I think its classen but they both only have the smaller front wheels on them. But on hills either brand will tip. This is from my experience, if your going up and down the hill no worries but side to side it will tip to the side where the hills going down. They say if thats happening your suppose to take the 40lb weight out of that side but then when you turn around you would always have to move the weight to each side each time you turn around and it would take forever.

Thanks. Yeah switching the weight around would wear you out quicker than wrestling the aerator.
