Have not posted in that section yet, although I just checked it out and no local lawncare adds there... needless to say I am working on one now! Thanks!!!

That is where that company buys theirs from. He told me he buys from all over the country while I was there I sat my eyes on a Toro Dingo with all the attachments.... I fell in love!!!

It is a 48" snapper pro 600fx kacut I live in Soddy Daisy along the foot of the mountains. Soddy is 25 min out of Chattanooga so I have some steep hills I have mowed. With that being said it can do anything the exmark walk behinds can do or better!!!!!! It has a wider wheel base and bigger tires. Also snapper pro has the fx kawi option where the exmark does not the fx is supposed to be a better motor than the fs. When it comes time to get another wb it will be snapper pro. plus they are cheaper than exmark

I use CL usually in spring, fall or if things slow down, definitely all about the wording in ads to separate yourself from guys working for beer $. here is a recent commercial ad. http://providence.craigslist.org/sks/3678509284.html

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/grd/3631243872.html <---- here is an ad i saw the other day that had me shaking my head a bit, i mean.. I am pretty sure i've seen these guys around my area for the past few years. I do not understand how it is possible to stay in business with these prices. I wonder what any lawn, any size, no estimate necessary really means.
