    this is a huge lot i did 3.5 acres with 6 pine trees and a ranch house on it. wide open lawn. was to lazy to walk allllll the way to the back of the yard to take a good picture. i just stood in the front yard and snapped a few.

    And (knock on wood) you can easily put another 1500 hours on it.

    sold my 60'' dixie chopper and 52'' toro grandstand. dixie was getting to old and the toro was way to slow and thought since im not mowing i can risk the time to swap out my stuff for newer stuff and so i upgraded to a scag and john deere standers. most my clients don't like to see a big tired zero turn on there lawns but don't mind the standers n them one bit. and i prefer a stander to a zero turn. so i sold my two and picked up a 2011 scag vride 52'' 26hp 415 hours and a 2010 john deere quik trak 60'' 23hp 160 hours both with low hours and excellent condition.
    now i just need some grass to cut
