    You're absolutely correct on Florida conditions--been there twice and was miserable twice.

    I don't know what Rob's up to, he's been pretty scarce lately although I know he had some computer problems. As good as Rob is, he could do it in less than 45 minutes if Jimmy Dean on the menu.

    We currently run 3 ferris mowers, and have had two others in the past. In 6 mowing seasons, I have NEVER replaced a spindle due to wear (one was replaced once b/c an employee tried to mow over a 6" tall manhole cover). We grease all machines daily, whether we mow one or one hundred lawns. I think the dealer is selling you a bill of goods.
