I think the 30" is your best bet then, I used to run a 32" ferris when I worked for another company, it's a good mower, but not great, there are a bunch of posts about them on LS. I think around here its the cheapest/best WB for the money, I see them used on Kijiji for like 1500-2500.

Yeah I know, the 30 is fine for now. I was just thinking about my next mower when I can really justify buying one.

Figured out how to add a watermark to my images, Irfanview is a great program for re-sizing images, it does the watermark too. I just added a semi transparent logo in the corner, seems to work.

Removed a few shrubs today, 1 large Juniper, 1 smaller one, 1 dwarf alberta spruce. Also pulled out 2 mugo pines in the backyard and pruned a bunch of shrubs front/rear and weeded and re-edged gardens. Also pulled 3 very large dwarf korean lilacs at another property but forgot to take pictures.

Haven't posted much recently, just been busy with the usual. Here are a couple pictures of a 4 cubic yard hole I filled and seeded, a Mulberry tree I cut down (forgot to take before pictures but it was about 12ft tall), some pruning and weeding I did, and my new to me sod-cutter (man this little tool is great.) Got it used for $40.00.

It's actually very easy to use, once get get going you just kind of adapt a rocking/shoving motion overall its way easier than bending over or being on you hands and knees with an edger (what I used to do). The depth can also be adjusted using a few different bolt holes, not sure why the blade is the way it is, I rented on earlier this year and it had a solid blade, I will likely get a piece of metal bend and a solid blade installed but this unit works great the way it is, also provides a fairly consistent depth of cut which is important when patching small areas where additional soil isn't needed/wanted.

Man it's been a while since I've posted anything, I haven't taken as many pictures as I planned this year. I bought a Canon T3i just for work pictures but often forget to bring it, oh well. Here a few I did have.

1. Small backyard I re-sodded, don't have an after picture, but this one is before laying the sod down, man that manual sod cutter is a workout.

2. & 3. A couple gardens I gutted, again no after pictures, I also filled in a pond for the same customer, about two half days in total.

4. & 5. Pruned a malbury tree, was kinda tall and awkward customer was happy but I don't think I would like to do it again, buts its a very good occasional customer of mine.

6. & 7. & 8. Sodded a bunch of areas in a backyard. Customer had gardens in these areas that were surrounded by rotting pressure treated railroad ties, I didn't take before pictures but there was lots of prep work (pulling ties, shrubs, roots, removal of soil, grading etc.)
