Jumped on the Gravely and finished the job. Then I just pulled the truck out onto the golf course and backed it real carefully up onto my trailer.

Really nice stripes, that Gravely still lays some awesome stripes and looks like a nice load of grass.

I guess the golf course had a cart path next to your lawn? That couldn't of got any handier lol. Sorry to hear about the tire issues. If we were closer I'd let you run mine tomorrow. Actually... I think Jason has a spare tail wheel setup, I think he ordered his with a single and converted to standard. May wanna send him a FB message and see if he still has it. If so, I could pick it up in the morning and meet you half way if you haven't got yours fixed.

Yeah that Gravely still keeps right up with the Walker for the most part. Just have to dump the bag more often.

Well it wasn't a cart path, it was more of an open grass area next to one of the greens. So I go pulling up in there with my rig in 2wd, after I'd thought about 4wd just to play it safe. Anyways, pull up on the golf course and all is good until I stop to back up to the mower. Then I got stuck, and ended up putting it in 4wd and rutted up the golf course a little lol. If I woulda been in 4 the entire time like I had thought about, none of that woulda happened lol

I think I may be able to repair my tail wheel, I'm pretty sure I got a hole in it and it went flat pretty quick on me. I got it back on the trailer with as little movement as possible so it wouldn't mess it up anymore. Thanks for the offer though man, some day when things slow down a little bit we all oughta meet up for some grub or something.

I'm sure the golf course maint crew was just thrilled HAHA "WTF thats not a damn divot!!!". And yea, I'm down for getting some lunch sometime. It'll be a while though, while I'm caught up on mowing, I can't even see that there is light at the end of the tunnel on spraying weeds...

Same for me, except I'm not caught up on mowing yet lol. I've still got mowing to catch up on and I've got another sprinkler system to install too. So it'll be a while before I have time

I for sure want to get a bigger trailer. Probably a 20 footer with a 1ft dovetail. For a total of 19ft flat floor space. Plenty of room to work for grass and machines.
