Holy long Grass!! Cut some lots 4 times just to get rid of the clumps. Had 2 yards under water by 1-2ft, CRAZY had never had these accounts look like that. Bagging anything was a joke, first couple ft it clogs, so we mulched everything ALOT!!! Seen some guys just trying to burn down the lawn, taking 6 inches at a time, and it wasnt working to well.lol Not even clumps, piles eveywhere. What a intresting day. I seen it all today.

If you are interested in the aerator we can make a deal. Im not trying to drop any out of pocket money right now being my mower will be as good as new with the new trans once it finally comes in. Just really want a good backup of equal or greater size because using the 32 in its place sucks! Text me some pics if you want and I will do the same

Nothing worse than your own subdivision entrance looking like poop !
I used to mow it 4-5 years ago for $720 a cut. We had 4 lasers on it for 3-4 hours now one guy and his one mower have been cutting it on and off for the past week. The grass is 12-14" lo g and when he cuts it the piles are 12-14" tall !

I'm not for sure but I here he get almost half what we used too.

Hahah that makes my day!!! The prez of that association is the hands down best guy I have ever worked for in my life! You shoulda stopped and said hi, I will be back in the a.m to plant the flats. Normally we do that entrance, the other and the commonsd with 4 guys but I was feeling a bit cocky and though two skinny gringos could bang it out.

What kind of truck do you drive? Please tell me it wasn't that blazer with the 4'x 6' trailer we were crackin jokes about ALL DAY!
