for that huge farm place, have you ever thought about putting a deck back on that Toro Groundsmaster you used to have with the blower? Maybe you could even leave it on-site and just send one of your guys over there with the extra truck for a couple days to take care of the place that way it would free up the rest of your resources. Just a thought. I'd love to have a place that big, seems like some big $$ there!

The deck for the toro is still only a 60 inch deck. the biggest drain on time is the string trimming, you have to trim around all the fence posts.

do you have to mow all the corrals at that place? i mow 1 horse farm but i dont have to mow the corrals or trim around them. just stick the edge of the deck under the fence. its still like 6 acres of mowing but not trimming corrals saves probobly 1.5 to 2 hrs.
