Though, the oil pan did rust out on it and I had to replace the from driver side springs due to the bushings but besides that's it's been a great truck for me overall

A client of mine wanted a small rock wall and beach installed, this is my first time doing a job like this! I wasnt on site the entire time, I had a busy day that day with estimates and such. The client was very happy with the work that was done, so that was a good thing.

I used it for cleanups this spring and it was a big time savor, of course. I never clogged it or anything like that, even in wet conditions. I will for sure buy another one (grasshopper) and I will keep the hopper on full time on one of the units for bagging lawns during the cutting season, a couple of my clients have asked about that and I didnt want to offer it because I use the Gh so much I didnt want to have the hopper constantly on there, if I have two I will keep one on full time and offer bagging if they have somewhere I can dump the clippings on there property, which in my area a lot of my clients have wooded areas or there neighbors that I mow do where so for most people who are interested in getting there lawn bagged, this will not cause the issue of me being stuck with clippings during my route, this fall I plan to keep it on full time as well. Hope this helps, I would say I am extremely happy with my GH, but I do have excellent dealer support which is always a bonus, one last things I have a lot of trees I mow around, it is great having the front deck to go under...saves my trimmer guy from getting under all those spider web infested trees 8-10 am...lol.



Glad the GH is working good for you. Looks like it handles the northern grass just fine. How does the bagger handle wet grass in the mornings (or when it rain I guess..lol) ? Id like to see some pics of how well the vac works once we get some wet leaves falling. What size trailer do you have? The only downside Ive seen with a front mount is how much space they take up on the trailer.
