    looks good ser, that a advantage series? lol our mowers will be twins, only difference is mine has the larger front casters which if im not mistaken you can buy the bigger ones and just replace the smaller ones if you want, and if my eyes are right that doesnt have the deck lift assist, not a big deal but stumps/sprinkler heads/random s**t comes up fast haha.

    Yea I believe it is the advantage series and the scalp wheels are quite small. I need new ones for it anyways. They are all screwed up and barely holding on. I don't have a deck lift assist, lucky all my properties don't have to many surprises.

    well in general it looks like your off to a good start this year:weightlifter: get a tracvac or a ultravac and cleanups will get a hair bit easier, i would prefer the ultravacs ha, i think in the next week or two im going to go pick up another 7100/7001 backpack and maybe a LE242 edger to make edging a tad bit faster then my push edger, hoping ill be at about 10-20 accounts if im lucky, made some yard signs at my house and they turned out well i think for being homemade, thinking about getting one of those OCD shutes for the new mower to reduce blowing s**t out of flower beds:dizzy: plus since im a big fan looking into a F250/350 for my next vehicle and then obviously looking for a larger trailer, and then looking for a trac vac/bluebird or a ultravac for my mower, plus always looking into used trimmers/blowers since im a craigslist addict, god im all over the board but trying to figure this whole year out, then trying to figure working receiving at a grocery part time or working for my past boss landscaping part time on the side of my own work, got to say i got a list a mile long of stuff to figure out.

    Btw you will love that 25HP kohler. We have one with the sale engine, same deck, and everything. Its probably one of my favorite mowers because I can fit it on most of the properties we service. Always leaves a nice cut, even in wet conditions, although it does clog up sometimes and I have to scrape the deck more than I would like but other than that its an awesome machine.

    yeah last guy i ran for had a 01' 25HP/60", a 04" 27HP/60", a 07' 27HP/60" triton, and then a 09' 25HP/60" advantage series(all mowers were lazers), not to mention other guys i ran for, but yeah the exmarks were extremly good in wet conditions, thought the 01' had the habit of tearing lawns when the rest never did, most of the machines were over 4k hours believe it or not, and even though people complain and i dont know your experiences i kind of liked the triton deck, had to always make sure the blades were perfect but overall it mowed well, considering i know others abused the machines to no end, he had just upgraded to 29HP Kawis/60" John deeres wondering how they stack to the old lazers

    Yea, I wish I could afford a trac vac for my proline or ultravac for the exmark. I just spent most of my cash on the exmark :laugh:. I have a clean up monday that would be way easier with a vac. I would love to get an F-250/350 maybe by the end of this year for plowing. I will need a new trailer nest year if I get the ultravac.

    I would definitely put a stick edger on the top of the list. I started my first season with a push edger, by may I bought a stick edger. Its ten times easy...
