Just some snap shots

It takes me about 3hrs just to mow this property with my murray riding mower. This is only about half or maybe less of what all has to be mowed.

The grass is trying to spread as you can see. It is completely covered now.

There was a ton of leaves in this bottom pic before i got them up. I wished i would have snapped a pic of them. The last 3 pics were taken this past weekend.

As soon as you can, move up to a woreout walk behind and you could maybe cut the whole proptery in an hour.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!

seems like you are scalping the hell out of that lawn. Sell the tractor and get a use 48 or 52" walk behind, you will cut your time down by 75%

On the murray i have, the cutting deck stays on 4 during the summer and this time of year i dropped down to the 3 setting. This is on a scale of 1-6. 6 being the highest ofcourse. The pic with the dog in it the deck was on 4.

I don't think I like it. First picture looks like you left grass all over the place.

Not sure what that is in the pic. Ive only cut the grass twice. The back yard gets kinda thick but this front yard is very short grass (centipede and something else). It is very hard to tell where I have cut and where i havnt when making passes back and forth. It may be different during the growning season but the two times i have cut it there are just some little sprigs sticking up here and there which are weeds.
