    I am the proud owner of a 2003 Hustler Super Z. I know its late in the season but i had a good reason to buy it. Actually two....1st the dealer made me a great deal, $7400 and 2nd i just picked up three home depots, 2 in Wichita, and 1 in Hutchison. I tried to use what i had, but it took way to long. plus there is a large dyke on the south side with three rows of pine trees about 15' apart. The walker is a great machine but wouldn't hold a hill for nothing. The Z walked all over it. I can mow all three in about 8 hrs. Ill have some pics soon.
    Another question is i have the snow removal account. Does anyone do snow removal for other home depots? What do you charge? I haven't had time to measure it.
    Thanks.

    Is that you Herb?
    They contacted me and wanted a bid. So i did just that and included drive time, .32/mile. They accepted it, and i now have the account. Im not sure who had it before but i think he needs to invest into an edger, or learn how to edge with a trimmer. It looked terrible. We've been getting a lot of complements.
    What would you charge for the snow removal?
    BTW i contacted the manager for the city of park city about the mowing you forwarded to me. It wasn't a weekly contract so i declined it. But i appreciate the offer. Hope your year is going well.

    Congrats on the new addition to the arsenal! Out of curiosity, is their policy there the same as it is here, where they want you to go in and have a manager sign you in and out whenever you visit?
