If I remember right I was in the 350-4 ballpark when I bought mine a few years ago. It does alright in normal conditions and mulches pretty good if its dry. I just had to complain a little. I see Hustler made a 21 for a little while. Id like to find a cheap one of those , then I would match ..lol


Got a 35 yd mulch job yesterday Well see what today brings. Cold and rainy so far.

Yeah, those 21'' Hustler's looked pretty good, and I'm not liking the cold I can handle the rain but not a fan of the real cold.

Ah , finished everything by Thursday and its raining today Landed a few more mulch jobs as well as mowing accounts. Looking forward to getting started on them. Also ordered a bed edging attachment for my trimmer and a sulky for the mower. Hope they get in today or early next week. But with the rain here the only thing to focus on is my "other" job tonight

Got the bull rider on today and played with it on my lawn. Kinda a strange feeling riding on it for the first few mins. If the rain lets up I will be using the echo bed redefiner tomorrow as I used it around the house a little bit and don't see why it wont work on the job site.





And have been putting a new clutch in our old family tractor. I have a blueberry farm to mow once a month and I think its going to be just fine for it. Just got to get it back together.

Another mulch pic



And the bull rider is making it easier on the bigger places for sure.

Made even better time after learning the ins and outs of using the sulky. If your not fluid with your movement its hard on the mower. I had my helper run it and it was killing me watching.
