I know it was alot but it was on sandy and I was going to the barn so it wasn't too far! Also I like working off of my truck. I definitely thought about having it delivered though!

This rain is killing me! I have 4 mulch jobs that were supposed to get done today and tomorrow but I can only really do the one today. I am just putting off going out into the rain to put on my headache rack and go pick up mulch! Maybe in a bit I will be motivated . Did you join the Western PA Landscapers thread? Its actually a pretty good one!

Looks good Scott. How does your Snapper do in thick wet grass? We have one like yours at MMC and it's terrible in the thick stuff...blows major clumps.

It really depends on the degree of wetness. Morning dew isn't too bad but when it is super wet and thick it doesnt bag very well and tends to keep a lot in the deck instead of discharging it. I really dont just blow the grass much but when I do if it is wet it sucks. BUT the mower is a tank and I love it other than that!

I agree, I'd like stick a Trivantage, Ultracut, or Velocity deck on one of those Snappers.

This is the only walk behind that I have ever used but I am AVIDLY looking for a second one! I would love to buy an exmark but they are hard to find used in the range I am looking for.

Before Allegheny Lawn and Golf went under, they sold Brickman leased Exmarks. They always had some good deals.
