Equipment looks great man. I thought about buying a new JD z-mower but the dealer woulden't give me a demo. The price was tempting tho. it was like 3k less then the Exmark i bought.

Hey i like your list of equipment! go green. you must have some large accounts?
Ya, we run three crews, one is for where our shop is located, rural area, country lots. Most of the accounts are judged by the acre, second is for Twin cities metro area, and the third crew is for landscaping and tree work. How you liking your 1445?? We absolutely love ours

Thanks GOLDPRO, Love the video of that blower! It gets me excited for my spring cleanups. What does a hurricane blower weigh? Any trouble with wet lawns?

Congrats on your new 7H17!
What are the differences between the 7iron Pro and the 7iron II decks other than the 7iron II having fewer anti-scalp wheels and not having the thick metal around the deck?

I have heard a TON of good things around the 7iron decks but I was just wondering about that.

helps to give a lawn the manicured look. The 4th pic is an after shot of

a fall cleanup job - which i use my f1445 with a trac vac leaf system for.

Some more pics:
Like the equipment! I too have a striping roller for my z930. My southern grasses don't stripe near as good as the cool seasons you guys get into, but I like the way it smoothes out the cut on the bumpier campuses we have. And if there was any hope of getting any decent stripes on bermuda a roller would be the only way. Good looking equipment, truck, trailer and work. Top notch!
