    The guy across the street also is a landscaper and he too is amazed at how much grass/mud I scrap off. He too runs Bad Boy. But he services the subdivisions, and I service mostly the lakefront homes. I have 3 customers in the subs or mobile home park. The rest are on the water or on ponds (that they call lakes, but they are like 4-acre ponds). I also have a few of customers that have dirt driveways (where you are blowing dust up, and then hitting the wet dew grass.) I have 2 customers where their driveways are dirt ruts with grass in between, so you have to cut the grass. I guess I could trim that grass, but I normally just cut it.

    I'm not complaining, that pile of grass represents $$$$

    It looks like most of your grass is cut damp or wet. What kind of grass do you mainly cut? Is it kind of a sticky type grass?

    I get to his area. Its rye, fescue, or KBG. I bet fescue on nice lake lots. Ive never had to clean out my kubota deck, ever. It will clean itself out.

    YEP! BUT the KBG is never a problem. I wish every customer had KBG! Cuts beautifully, looks fantastic! Its the fescue and rye in all its varieties. The creeping red is hard to cut, the tall, Hard, and Chewings hold moisture and gets sticky.

    tell me how your kubota cleans itself?
