I'm getting a lot of new work this year but almost all of it they are calling for the first cut a month into the growing season. It can vary from 10" to well over a foot. I know this will get me business latter on but it is putting me behind with it raining 4 days a week. I would really be having a hard time if it wasn't for the Scag and the open deck and I need all 31 hp. I'm surely not the only one running into this this year. I mean I have had to bring tractors in before on repo's but this year with all the rain it's bad. And to beat it all while I'm trying to get that work done I'm getting people wanting me to cut their grass while I'm in the neighborhood till they can get their mower fixed or their brother feels better, etc. The saturated grass is a real headache when it gets that high. Some of it wasn't' cut at the end of last season so it a real pain. I just came in from working after dark and were in for some dry weather this week thankfully.
