St.Baldricks

Hey guys,
Anyone here interested in donating a couple bucks to help me out with this great cause?
http://www.stbaldricks.org/participa...ipantid/521075

St. Baldrick's Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. If you have children like I do, you know what it's like to worry about them getting sick. Can you just imagine if they had cancer? I know it makes my stomach churn. So please, if you have a couple extra bucks to spare donate them and come to McFaddens on March 14th at 5pm and watch me get my head shaved! It's tax deductible!

Thanks,

Alan Weaver

Negative, I think I might know who it is. He was trying to sell them last year, as he is going to URI now in the landscape architecture program. I just can't wrap my head around buying customers off of people. What if they decide not to go with you? Then you're out money..........idk, I guess if you had them sign a contract first then it wouldn't be that bad

New Mower

Hey Guys,
Im out looking at new mowers and just curious to see what everyone out there is running for mowers? I kinda want to get an exmark zturn with a triple bagger. The guys I used to work for had a diesel exmark and the cut was amazing, but the hydro pumps used to fail every year like clockwork.. Anyone have an exmark and have any problems? I saw RLM's new Walker and I would love to get one of those, I used to run one all the time. I just don't know if im ready to spend $13,000.00 vs. $9,000.00
Thoughts?

Aren't the z turns like 9-10k just for the mower then another 3k for the bagger. Thats what I was told by a couple of guys and that's why I went with the walker. Just curious if you were quoted for a 60" zturn with bagger for 9-10k?

I used a 72inch exmark liquid cooled diesel for 2 years with a triple bagger and I loved that damn machine. It was a beast and cut amazing, but it did drink the diesel like crazy so that's an issue. The hydros were a little touchy but the main issue we had was smoking. The bags fill up really quick and are a ***** to empty. It's a great machine but I would look into a gas one and save yourself some money

I was looking at a 52" with a double bag. The mower was 7 grand and the bagger is 2grand.
