with the bar all the way forward he can roll the wood down easily to get the speed power he may need when needed.. its only temporarily till he get the hang of 5mph... few hundred thousand sf he should get it and can be removed..

great idea. i often wish I could go faster. I have a few stops with multiple house, but not beside each other. It is easier to drive the z than to load the truck.

I miss the people up there alot, the riding not so much. Hoping to go up as a guest sometime this summer but Sam made All-Stars again so I'll be at the ballfield everyday for the next few weeks. Between work, baseball, and bbq comps I got no spare time anymore. How you doing?

When teaching new guys, I also cut a short piece of PVC that stayed with the machine.

It was cut to the exact distance that should be observed between the tire tracks of parallel passes. This way it was very easy for the operator to pull the PVC off the machine and set it down in the grass to check their spacing. Simple little tool for new guys, worked great.
