How do you like the way you 5075e gears work, Ive been considering getting one but the tractor i have now has the shuttle shift forward and reverse and the 5075e doesn't offer shuttle shift so Ive been holding off and looking at other brands. I would love to se a picture of you tractor if you got any.

Its got three gear ranges with three gears each. I only use two or three gears most of the time. Works great. Pics in my phone trying to upload to site.

Down here we charge $15.00 per acre if it's easy mowing and not over grown to much and with a lot of obstacles .....trees etc.Price goes up from there.

If I get a call for Bush-Hog work I'll go out to look at it first and I'll give a free estimate if local. . I like to look at it before I haul equipment out because they never can explain the "lay of the land." . (etc, ponds, ditches, hillside and how tall the weeds/brush is). . And you never know if the area has a swampy place. .You'll find out the hard way.

If I charge by the hour, It's $60 an hour and I charge $60 for a "show up fee".

If the area is 5 acres and under, I do it on contract. . I'll look at the area and tell them a price and still charge a show up fee.
