these two mowers go on the back of my truck for mowing 2 routs i do on the way home from work. i work 30 minutes away from home so i picked up 4 accounts on the way home and cut those and on the other day i cut 5 lawns going a different way home. i figures im already driving might as well cut some lawns on the way too.

Great work man, nice mowers too! I love your philosophy about "already driving home might as well hit some lawns." Awesome stuff.... I am also a solo operator and I am currently jealous of you because you have more accounts than I do and you are only part time! Haha... Do you run any sulkys with those mowers at all?

no i have tried them before can move faster around stuff without them and i use the stander most of the time for the bigger stuff. I just picked up the lesco in the winter for $400 bucks, guy said the trans was out, and found out the belt slipped off the pulley buy the engine (also has a completely rebuilt motor with less than 100 hours on it. the scag hydro i got last month for $250 (had a craftsman riding mower 13hp engine on it). hydro were strong and spindles are tight so i found a 20hp kawasaki brand new for 700 and put it on and hoping to use it some this year.
