The new toro walkbehind has been working great. We never had a hydro walk, we are really enjoying it.

We really don't bag much at all. We usually bag with the 21" mowers, and the collection system goes on the 60" ztr in the fall for leaves. The WB bagger we just use on a handful of lawns.

Been a while, so I thought I'd post an update.

Traded the old ford in for another dodge back in July. Cummins of course. Personal/work truck:

We have a big tree planting job coming up soon, so we took the plunge and bought an auger and 36" bit for the DW:

Here's a few of the tree job we have coming up. Trees are being delivered this weekend. One of them (the "instant shade tree") is a ~6.5" caliper.

Here are the "getting ready" pictures.

Rental sod cutter, love this Ryan Jr, lot better than the bluebird we usually rent, at least for small curved areas.
