Thanks man... someone else mentioned they have a year 2000 Big Tex that's still going strong so it's nice to hear that it will certainly last!

Yeah I'll end up doing some work on it when I get some time, need sides, trimmer/blower rack and maybe gate assist.

I hope your season is incredible.

GOD BLESS AMERICA
Thanks... love Exmark's products and also Stihl's products. Have the dealer/repair support close to me so that's another positive factor!

Ahh that's too bad man, time for the upgrade eh?!?

I don't even have the chute on the Exmark at the moment, I'm either bagging or just spitting it out without the chute.

Here are the latest pieces of equipment...







I'm going to get an updated picture of the trailer as I've added a trimmer rack and a mower holder...

Bought the Stihl Kombi because I had 3 or 4 jobs where I absolutely needed a long reach, adjustable hedge trimmer. I could've rented one but by the time I rented it 3 or 4 times, I would've paid almost halfway for the Kombi... Opted for the 90, tons of power and it exceeded my expectations.

The Craftsman... well, it's a Craftsman - cheap push mower. I use the push mower on about 4 lawns per week so it gets minimal use.
