I was just sitting here pondering since most of us have more time on our hands now that the season is over. Back when i first started this biz full time 10 years ago and went to commercial grade euipment , i thought i was on top of the world with 1 belt drive 14 horse scag w/b,( this was after running a tractor for a few years now i think back to then what a nightmnare on production ) i think back then that was about the biggest engine you could get on a walk now 14 horse isnt anything and we are are striving for bigger engines to give us the boost we need in productivity . As time has marched on so has my euipment as i went to Scag hydros with a 17 horse kawi ( i have or had 2 of them always need a back up ) and this year i have moved up more with a 24 horse honda TIGER CUB and who knows as what the next couple of years will bring as far as euipment size , is this what most of you have done ? upgrade slowly ? or have you went the biggest or best right off top ?
