Thanks man! And yeah no the turf tiger was cheap! I got it through brogan and he's been cool for me over the past year and we got a good relationship going so when I went to get the turf tiger they are going for 2-3000 and he gave me one of the best in shape ones for 1800, it was a no brained to buy it

For that many hours it still looks good and with regular maintenance it will last you awhile. Congrats on the purchase and good luck this season!

Picked up a new Echo CS-400. My Husky 435 has been really temperamental and it needs some carb adjustments also, but figured having another chainsaw wouldn't be a bad idea. The Husky is also a little under powered, and this has a little more power so I used it today just to try it out a bit and I really like it so far.

Whats funny is I started with the same Craftsman Zero Turn. Wasn't too bad for the price, but if I were to do it all over again, would've probably got a Hydro Walk Behind instead...but anyway, nice start. Like someone said already, we all start somewhere, how much effort we put into it is what takes us where we will end up.

Thanks man, and yeah Im with you on the hydro walkbehind topic. It held up for a bit when I had less than 10 lawns, but the hydro walkbehind would've just excelled from the beginning.
