How many accounts do you maintain?? If my math is right you would have that mower for almost six years now, and i would think that the deck on that mower would have some discoloring on the leading edge of the deck and the trimming side.

you are correct, it is 6 yrs old, now and I have had about 12 accounts, some years a few more, some a few less, but this is my first year technically in business. yah there is some, the paint chipped in a few spots and some discoloring especially because I haven't washed or tried to clean it for about 4yrs, but with some elbow grease everything came off and it looked almost new. but it is in the garage every night. I just didn't have a recent picture of it, I'll take one today.

that's the dump truck I use when its needed for any clean up that require anything hauled away, no I didn't pay for it, yes I do realize how fortunate I am to have something like that to use.

here's the back up truck, I use when my truck, is down for any reason, and the takecuchi tb125 I can use if a job requires it.


two before pics of a lawn I had to cut today.





a few after









and two of my regular lawns.



different house.

Thanks, I think the stripes look a little small, and i'm itching for a new new cheetah, or even a wildcat with a 61" deck, but then I won't be able to fit thru all the gates like I can now, plus even with the 48" deck I can still make pretty good time on my lawns if I have someone else trimming, and I would need to step up to real landscape trailer dual axle 18' big tex, which I want also, but I need to wait some.

ok I have a question, for you guys, I'm not sure, which piece of equipment I should buy, its a toss up between the 3 bag collection system from scag or a billy goat self propelled ground blower, they are about the same price. 2500, and they would both help alot with clean ups. I have a enough clean ups to pay for either one. which one do you guys think would be more effective?

Took the new cheetah for a demo today and I think im gonna get one. It was nice to use I cut until 9:30 and I actually was making several passes wide open in high range on this ladys lawn I cut in town. That new velocity plus deck is sick. And the suspension seat makes rough lawns so smooth. And I talked two of customers into having me cut 2x a week so that should cover the new machine. And it stripes better too.
