You are joking right ?


I never get stopped for noise in the 24V not even when I was driving around with an open down pipe for close to a year !


Running a 5 inch turbo back now, still get the disgusted look from people at traffic lights then they close the windows real quick

The walkbehinds are good for alot of things. They are night and day better on hills, you can mow under trees/bushes much better then a z-mower can, they are great for tight spots, They do much better on wet lawns and wont rut the grass like the z-mowers do. they do alot better on fuel, etc etc

Every good lawn rig should have Atleast 1 walkbehind and 1 z-mower.

i understand, i just didn't think a 60" walk behind would that great on a hill that's all, i do have some accounts that are a little sketchy running a 60" ztr on some of the hills. and a few where 52 or 48" would fit better.

Hey Pro, throw some angles on those fairways! LOL I went back to all walkbehinds and if you saw my properties, you would understand. They do indeed have a niche. Funny about the cops, I set off an alarm friday when my new guy got a little too close to an AC unit. (Client still in The winter digs in Fla.) Cop pulls up and sees me, just waves and splits.
