    Not to keep hi jacking the OP's thread, but-

    Yep and thanks. Too bad it is still very brown here this year. We are getting a really late start here this year after the harsh winter we had.

    Ever considered purchasing a used zero in the $7000 range and buying a new Trac Vac 880 since the machines will only be on your property. I own a 880 and could suck about an acre into 1 load. Two acres should put between 30-35 hours a year on a mower, so you could buy a used gas zero with 500 or so hours for $6-7k easily.

    Ever hear of soap and water? JK:D
    I blow it off after every cut no matter what, and wash it every other week. I like my stuff to look new as much as possible, and it helps big at trade in or private sale time.:)

    Good point! I need to take care of mine like that. The thing that surprises me most about yours is I don't see scuff marks on the side of the deck. I started picking up a few of those right away on mine.

    Oh, they're there alright, and there's more now than when that picture was taken about 10 months ago. Plus, that picture isn't focused as well as it could have been. I do try to avoid scuffing it on stuff. It does the deck nor whatever you scuff it into any good. No one like green paint on their landscape stones, and I have to go back around with the trimmer to get all that grass in and around them or landscape timbers anyway, so I just stay out a few more inches than many other guys would is all.

    I do the same as Ridin'. My '05 still looks great!

    Something else, I never step on the top of my deck; that eliminates scuffs on the most visible part.

    I never have either, not until this one with the raised metal step. Now I get on and off using it. In the past, I had the non skid tape like so many models do, so I just stepped up over the front and sat down.
