    Hey guys,
    Anyone here interested in donating a couple bucks to help me out with this great cause?
    http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/participantid/521075

    St. Baldrick's Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. If you have children like I do, you know what it's like to worry about them getting sick. Can you just imagine if they had cancer? I know it makes my stomach churn. So please, if you have a couple extra bucks to spare donate them and come to McFaddens on March 14th at 5pm and watch me get my head shaved! It's tax deductible!

    Thanks,

    Alan Weaver

    Negative, I think I might know who it is. He was trying to sell them last year, as he is going to URI now in the landscape architecture program. I just can't wrap my head around buying customers off of people. What if they decide not to go with you? Then you're out money..........idk, I guess if you had them sign a contract first then it wouldn't be that bad

    Hey Guys,
    Im out looking at new mowers and just curious to see what everyone out there is running for mowers? I kinda want to get an exmark zturn with a triple bagger. The guys I used to work for had a diesel exmark and the cut was amazing, but the hydro pumps used to fail every year like clockwork.. Anyone have an exmark and have any problems? I saw RLM's new Walker and I would love to get one of those, I used to run one all the time. I just don't know if im ready to spend $13,000.00 vs. $9,000.00
    Thoughts?

    Aren't the z turns like 9-10k just for the mower then another 3k for the bagger. Thats what I was told by a couple of guys and that's why I went with the walker. Just curious if you were quoted for a 60" zturn with bagger for 9-10k?

    I used a 72inch exmark liquid cooled diesel for 2 years with a triple bagger and I loved that damn machine. It was a beast and cut amazing, but it did drink the diesel like crazy so that's an issue. The hydros were a little touchy but the main issue we had was smoking. The bags fill up really quick and are a ***** to empty. It's a great machine but I would look into a gas one and save yourself some money

    i just bought a new 52 scag tiger cat 27 kohler

    0% for 48 months.

    no collection system though. another 2500 for it and its belt drive off the deck.

    i always see everyone buying exmarks but then i always see them in the shops...???

    I guess its what you prefer.
