My Starting Operation

Just a couple pictures from last year. This year I am looking for a more commercial zeroturn. I do a lot of mulching work, didn't really take pictures of that stuff though. I will take more pictures of my work and new upcoming equipment this year! Truck, Trailer, Mower, Trimmer, and Blower was basically the extent of my equipment this past year. That will soon change.

That's actually a very impressive cut for a craftsman. Good luck this season save some money and try toget a walk behind or maybe even a used zero turn. There are plenty of good deals out there just gotta look for em

If you are looking to upgrade I have a ferris IS2000 52" 25 hp kawasaki with a new engine for sale. I can give you a real good price and possible delivery if you are serious.

I actually am saving to get a 60" zeroturn. I am getting too many big lawns to keep running 50-52". 52" is probably what I want in a walkbehind though

Did you know that truck load could be reduced to almost nothing with the use of a hedge trimmer....and it doesn't take long. Or mulch it with your craftman.

the bulk of it was 2 large hedges so i just trimmed it down as much as i needed and dug up the main part and just threw it in the bed. But if i run into a situation like that again i will definitely take up that advice. Thanks!
