    Not bad. Is that hitch and hydraulic lift standard on the bluebird?

    no its not standard. it comes with a trailer jack on it that you have to crank to raise and lower it so i tied into the hydraulic system on my tractor and put the hydraulic cylinder on there. i also added the hitch.

    Pretty cool. Where did you find that bluebird, it looks well "broken in"?

    I like it but is there any way you could front mount that aerator? It would allow you to get into tighter places and use the wbh less. Not sure if your front spindles would take the weight? I use a Steiner 4x4 and the front mount is easier on the neck.

    yeah i bought the bluebird a few years ago from a rental yard where it sat outside all the time. about it being a front mount, thats a pretty good idea. i dont have a shop or a welder at this point so i dont really have any way to do that. i think the front would take the weight, they make front loaders for these tractors. maybe i'll look into that in the future.

    I like your set up. I have a plugr 850 and a ryan. Do you hand deliver or mail fliers? Place on doors or mail boxes? Knock on doors? Use yard signs?

    looks like a nice set up there...how hard is that plugr on the body?

    That looks just like the Husqvarna TA36 that I just bought. I am very satisfied with mine.
