I used to do a rather large cemetery, which was full of head stones. You have it made for now. Looks nice!

Looks like it's starting to rut. Do you ever cut any other directions?

Yupp we do a cemetery too... Still kinda new (2nd year open)
As of right now there is only one section filled in (less than 70 graves) its not too bad..

Does it creep you out?
For mine we have to cut it during the hours of 6AM and 9AM. One of my guys refuses to go there...

I cut that property on Friday,I currently work for someone.
I've been laying back, saving the cash and learning from all you guys for awhile now, not now,not yet but soon it will happen, I am a patient person.
that being said The equiptment on the trailer is a Toro grandstand 52" a wright sentar 36", lawnboy push mower and my baby a Hustler super z 60"
The trailer, up front has a vac system to the box, we use almost everyday as we bag most of the time.
I must say the hustler combined with the vac and clam shell can really take some grass, been using this set up for years and let me tell you we are extremly efficient. We cut what you can till the clamshell fills up, drive up to trailer, I actually dump my clippings on my trailer, not next to the truck, as many do. The vac system on the trailer is mounted so that the intake side is facing into my trailer, but if needed the hose extend so that if I choice to dump along side my trailer I can as well.

The stripes you see where done with the hustler, with some gator blades I believe. This cut we didnt bag.
Imagine the stripes would have even been brighter if we had.
