Got a lot of mowing done today. Here's some pics of some stripes, and the load of grass clippings at the end of the day.





The back mower is a Husqvarna commercial 21". Decent mower. Yea, I'm way behind, but should be caught up on mowing tomorrow, finish round 1 apps Sunday, then spray weeds in the mornings and evenings next week. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thankful for the rain, lot better start then last year for sure!

Pretty sure I ran across an older Perma Green, it will need an engine though. Not sure what it's gonna cost me, but I gotta get something. My other choice is a Lesco 200 gallon space saver to the tune of $4500.

Austin, I didn't realize you were that far behind. I'd head over there and help you get caught up if I wasn't so far behind.

Thanks. They really stand out there because the way the lawn is sloped towards the road. I love mowing this time of year, the grass stripes REALLY nicely everywhere.

Heres some new pics:

Servicing mowers before heading out to mow. I'm sure the neighbors love listening to equipment running and me grinding on blades at 6:30 am...




Rest are pics of lawns and the mowing rig:










Do you angle cut narrow strips, or mow "long ways" weekly and rut it up bad like a lot of my competitors here in town?

I will angle cut if there is enough room to turn around comfortably. Otherwise, I cut lengthways, but I make sure the mower wheels aren't in the same path week-to-week so it doesn't rut.

Very nice work in this thread!

My neighbor. Her late husband built the engine and lifted it. Now it mostly sits. Her new husband was driving it for a while till she realized he wasn't taking the best care of it lol.
