Are you logging any of that property or when you say "clear" you mean low hanging fruit, 4" inch & below saplings? Like many other say most customers wouldn't spring for that but i'm glad for you they did. Nice pice of coin.

No logging, mostly thinning out a lot of the stuff along the stream side. He did call me and say he only wants me to do half of the property, not the full thing as originally arranged, but its still a nice sized job.

dont over grease. belive it or not, too much grease is worse than just leaving it be. dont take this the wrong way, but 7 lawns is nothing. the grease isnt gonna go anywhere (unless you have blown seals). you should be greasing every 50-100 hours depending on the mfg.

The lawns i cut are 1-5 acres and u would be surprised how much grease my two other mowers ate up on a average week. Even my dad was laughing and he said thats not normal. With the scag i plan on changing the oil every 50 hours as well as greasing the 2000 grease points.

I Like Shindaiwa and Kawasaki more than Stihl, with the exception of handheld blowers. Think Scag and Snapper mowers are the best. Just My .02.
