Amazing news in an email after seeing those tire tracks earlier today. We will be doing all the prep work for a 18000 sq ft lawn that will be sodded. This is on the schedule for June 7th! Also on Tuesday, we will be finishing up an 11,000 sq ft lawn that has 2 duplexes on it. and after that, on Thursday we will be putting in 2 lawn areas around 2 ponds which is about 16,000 sq ft. And following this will be a few small landscape jobs, oh and one large landscape, also during this time a crew will be out mowing and taking new pictures of all the properties we maintain. Following all of this will be a 37,000 sq ft lawn we will be maintaining after it comes in. Oh, I almost forgot, sometime in there we also have 2 walkways to put in 2 fences, and 1 large patio.

Some stripes from the first cutting this spring I found, this cut as first cut with 925a, then bagged by the x340 which for an unknown reason pulled that brown stripe up , the 925 cut at 3.5 then the x340 did a 2.75 which is my final heigth then the 925 which cuts much better went over it one last time with a clean up pass

These two are of a lawn we recieved this spring and when we first got to them they were nothing but weeds. This has gotten one weed controll treatment along with crab grass preventor on the long straight section. The other larger portion will be treated with momentum Q if and crab grass decides to show up. This was what the client requested. So what the client wants the client gets.

The X340 is a good mower, its primary use is a snow blower in the winter, and spring dethatchings. it has I believe 350-400. If you are looking to upgrade go to the X500 series, it is a much better mower, the chasis is a million times better. But the only reason I keep getting one is for weight concerns in some locations at one account if it hasnt rained even for 2 weeks and we get 1/4" of rain you can not even walk acrossed it with out it feeling spongey like. The x340 floats right acrost it.

Good looking work! Like the Deeres, can't beat their cut. But I Really Love all of the blue ovals on the front of those trucks. Is your 2011 an ecoboost?

No , its the 5.0 I was just unsure of the eco at the time but now I wish I would have gotten the eco, mileage with 3.73 gears isnt bad 18-18.5 average empty, yea I have a mix of green and blue blood too!
