Anyone start mowing yet?

We've done a little mulch and cleaned up plow damage (from the previous company) but haven't mowed any properties yet.

Last week and this week been doing cleanups. Sand sweeping, de-thatching, leaves, sticks, branches, pine cones, etc. Using the mowers regularly to suck up debris - some of the lawns today we were cutting the green grass on, but still just cleaning up. We need a little rain and then some warm weather. Hope to be mowing by middle-end of this coming week. Glad to be back working.

After the weekend the lawns in the southern part of the state will be ready. Athletic fields and stuff on the beach that is fertilized I noticed were cut this week.

Funny you should ask! I never even thought about them until a few weeks ago a rep came by the shop and stopped in to talk about them. I'm going to look at one next week and demo it. We'll see how it compares to Toro.

Haven't seen anyone around here use a gravely mower, but they do look like rugged machines.

They seem like very rugged machines but make me a bit nervous since their commercial mowers don't seem to be quite as "tried and true". I need to try it out in less than ideal conditions, such as heavy due, bagging, etc. Well built but not sure about their bagging unit. We are getting very busy now, so not sure when I'll have a chance again. The reps and staff DO seem a lot more genuine and helpful than any other dealers around....I will say that. Our local JD dealer could care less after you buy.....they suck to be honest. Toro and exmark guys are nice enough, but VERY busy and rarely go above and beyond to help out. I'm looking for a great dealer, but the machine has got to match up as well. Harder to find than you would think.
