    Gotcha ya I'm just at about 2k lbs too but mine has tow mode so I turn it on during city driving bc it seems like its easier on tranny but I do worry that 2k lbs isn't really enough weight to use it and might actually hurt it. Idk

    Thanks ya picking some up here and there. how's your list looking? What we do is have one mower go around which has a mulch kit on it and then a second mower goes around which has a bagger to suck it all up. I just shred them up small to save space in the trashcans so that we can do multiple jobs in one trip.
