    haha. the bitching never stops. The reason i charged 85 per cut was because at the first meeting she wanted no grass clippings in the bed and for that reason only i said i cannot match 47 dollars because i would have to rush through the job. I mulch the whole thing with two 48" turf tracers and mulch plates installed. Then i have to do a whole lap around the property with a bagger, edge the beds each week, and trim like crazy.

    THAT HOBBIT LADY IS CREEPY AS ****. She doesnt talk at all, she just stairs and she doesnt leave when we start mowing. I enjoy cutting the lawn overall because i have the time to do it. It usually takes us around 45 minutes each week and im making around 2 dollars a minute. The best part is, i am chargin her for leave clean ups each week(becuase i am bagging the property now, which is 25 dollars more) and every weekend her husband (the highly proclaimed physician and master gardener) gets out their 21" mower and sucks up all the leaves in the front under the large crimson king.

    how do you get the reviever to be not so wobbly, with my loader completely swang open i angles down about 5". Is there anyway to stabilize the hitch in the truck?

    Thanks for the innovative idea! It has worked out great so far

    Pretty much just dealt with it.... I had ideas of ratchet straping each side to the truck, or having wedges made up that i could pound between the receiver and hitch.

    I liked looking through your thread! Nice truck, has a nice powerful look to it! You lawns looks good, man! Looking through these thread make me wish I was cutting up north. Grass is to pretty in Oklahoma usually...

    Man, nothing stripes like Turf tracers... whew. You're laying down some good looking cuts!
    (I'm hoping to get a TT 36" and belt drive but still a TT. :clapping:)

    Have a good one!

    Damn, i was hoping you knew the secret. They deisgn the hitch so it has a bit of a wobble so it doesnt screw up your rear end to bed when your trailer hits bumps in the road. I think i am going to have two hooks welded to each side of my hitchplate/backplate on my dump. Then take two binders and tighten them up really good on either side to reduce the wobble. Or get a second reciever hitch installed and just weld the mount right onto the dump truck or bolt it on somehow. I hate when its not perfect!

    Thanks man, im glad you enjoyed it. I like posting pictures for everyone to view. Im proud of what i do and enjoy it every second. The grass doesnt always look that green, but unlike many companies around me, i raise my decks in late June about .5" to and 1" taller. This help the drought in July and August and the grass stays healthy. On my accounts that are irrigated they are usually always green all year round.

    I love my TTHP's, i would recommend a 48" though. 36" are good size for a beginner but once you go to a 48" or 60" you will understand why i am saying this. For every 4 passes with a 36" its 3 passes with a 48". Think about how many passes you do each day. For me, its around 1000. If i used a 36" on my properties it would take me 40% more time to mow them with just that 12". And the price between a 36" and 48" is very minimal!

    We are quite a bit alike I can tell, nothing drives me nuts more than working with haggard azz stuff... When things are set up as they should be there is no to minimal accidents and breaks and work goes like a well oiled machine.

    I know. Thats exactly what i thought when i bought it. How can you pass that up. Instead of putting 1000 dollars in a CD for 5 years compounding monthly and making around 120 dollars. I bought a trailer, put a couple hundred into it and just sold it for 4900 dollars. Quintupled my money in one month.
