So I'm not the only one.

Also edhess I looked at your 2011 thread and its awesome! Your trailers are saweet. I like the combo of the chevy 1500 longbed with your trailers it just looks professional and defined.

I was going to post this in the thread about how long a Turf Tiger should last. My bet is that if you cut a lot of stuff like this it won't make 2000 hrs. I have to stop about every 15 minutes and clean out the screen on the radiator. This one has 496 hours and is in my shop with bearings out of the front wheels. Guys argued with me about needing a board to jump curbs I took their bad advise and stopped carring the board. Now that will cost us about $50 per tire for the stuff that wears.

I think I am happy we decided to upgrade to the top of the line Honda instead of the $600 model. Now in fairness they sell a lot more of this model but I will bet very few are in here for simple spring tune up

Some of those are the full blown HRCs...the rest are the junk homeowner ones.

We brought out some of the big guns to help me on this property that takes 12 hours to mow. The big Turf Tiger went down....you know the ones that last 3000 hrs. Well it stubed it toe on a curb I guess. The front wheel bearings out at 498hrs

One of the big companies dropped off a trailer load of vrides to have serviced. I thought the inside was kinda interesting. We are having a little retro on our closed one and the dam welders are charging us a fortune.. Think this might be cheaper route.
