This is what happens when you get a little rain. Just two years ago we was mowing all that area that is now grown up. The HOA had us bush hog it down four years ago and mow it monthly then 2 years ago they asked us to stop and just mow a swath next to those homes on the right. Don't think we could use the wb bush hop this time some of those horse weeds will have to be chain sawed.

In one of our holding ponds it has the best stand of nut grass I have ever seen. Can't hardly cut the stuff more like hack it...still too wet to get down in the bottom.

I can't get with the Turf Tiger. I will let that stuff stay that way until it gets into the August time frame then I can cut it. The customers HOA can';t see this from the roadway. Actually I can't cut any of the bottoms of ponds now all flooded with 3 big rains back to back this week

It has one of the larger engines I am not familar with engine sizes any more but it has plenty power. In general that is a very nice riding truck. We took it on a long trip and ride is good and noise level is low. I don't think it looks bad with the long bed. Also got good springs in back so we are very satisified. Hard to believe but three years warranty is up and we got a total of 17,000 miles on it.

Don't remember where we got the trailer. We use the Honda bump heads they are cheap and work fine. We tried the speed head but it had too many problems the more significant was wear and the resulting vibration.

Folks are making these arguments that you need an edger to make a nice edge. This is one of the jobs our guys did a few weeks ago and this looks fine to me.
