Several of you have been emailing me regarding good questions. I am doing my best to respond as soon as I can, thanks for your patience. In the meantime I would reccommend you to look into the March issue of Turf Magazine when it comes out for more clarification on our company.

Brimow, is that an old old Scag ZTR (like early 90's) sittin on the front of your trailer? Man those look like the current Landscaper's Supply Z's! How does it still work? You actually use it regularly? wow.........didn't know anyone still using them dinosaurs
I got a kick out of that. Not makin fun of you, more pokin fun at the mower itself and looking back at what was the best available technology 10 years ago or so and now we got deisels that will out power a Ford Escort in our lawnmowers and fuel injection, computers, Bladerunner's that can go 20mph, whats next!!
Thanks for the laugh, don't take it personally please
Eric

Hmm, at least he has a need for his mowers. Don't take it personally.

Based on the size of that rig, I'm guessing you don't just whisk through the McDonald's drive-thru for lunch. : )

Brad,

I think your wide area 455 is really cool. Have you ever tried to build a hydraulic powered Flexdeck or wide area mower attachment?

DLCS - Companies have them - JD makes an 11' two wing - hydrolic motors running spindles etc - $45,000. It takes a lot of power to do those things and a lot of money - We are just experimenting with methods to keep a wide area mower within the budget of the normal LCO that is trying to make a living.

Thanks, brad

If I get a couple of the bids on 19 acre and 17 acre properties, I am going to purchase a 595 - 4 wheel drive - 24 HP diesel and hang a 54" deck on the right, and the flex-deck on the left and it will have a 62" deck under the belly for a total of (after overlap, the 54" will mow 51") = 10.91 feet wide swath.

Etwman,

Did you make the racks for your blowers and trimmers, or buy? If made how exactly were they done? Any other ideas would be appreciated from any one else on storage racks.

Thanks
