    I will be purchasing all new equipment over the winter and moving into another area. I have already order a new chevy cab and chassis with the duramax and allison. I will be putting a Omaha Standard bed on it and a Meyer snow plow. Behind this I will be pulling a 28' Haulmark edge race trailer. I will be purchasing 2 60" liquid cooled Lazer Z's because they seem to have the best bagging setup for a 60" cut. I will also be purchasing 2 Turf tracer hp's with 48" cut and elec. start Kawasaki's, and one Viking hydro 32" cut. My question is should I run exmark 21" mowers or should I go ahead and purchase the Hondas? I do bag EVERYTHING so I'm leaning more towards the Hondas. Tell me what you think. And for those of you who are curious I use all Redmax handhelds.

    Exmarks 21" Has a Blade speed Of 18,000 FPM. That should Bag Your Grass!

    No, actually I sold my business one year ago and I'm getting back into the business. I have talked to all of my old customers and they want me to come back they are not happy with the new owner. I considered buying everything back from him but all my old equipment is not in the shape I kept it in. I didn't sell the guy any contracts or sign a no compete so I have no legal problems stepping right back into where I left off. So, I am going to go buy all new equipment with the money he paid me originally and take back over all my old work.

    Ok I got married and thought it would be worth it to get out and get a job with retirement and benefits. Well I got a really good job at a local funeral home but I hate the being on call on nights and such. I just really miss being my own employerer and working outside.
