    "F_ _ _'n New Guy", to the site.

    I've been reading and reading posts on this site for a little while now having enjoyed a lot of good hearted info. being shared and also a lot of laughs (ie...home made striping kit). I just wanted to drop in for the first time and say "Hi".

    ditto, I'm a newbie to the site as well, i spent a good time lurking and reading the posts and learned a bit as I'm a little green behind the ears in the industry. Been at it 4 years just doing 5 lawns with my Gravely Pro-50. Assuming i can find a few more customers I'm thinking of getting a Gravely 260Z with some attachments for fall/winter.

    This is really the best green-related sites i've found online, ton's of info from the people that do it everyday.

    I've been in the business for a while as well, however, I had to sell everything off and hang it up for a while since I'm now on a ship in the Navy. I'll be getting back into it hot and heavy next season after my ship returns from (my final) deployment. I'm looking at a lot of different manufacturer's of ZRT mowers and some walk-behinds. I'm not sure what I'm going to get. Some of these manufacturers aren't available around here, but look as if they may have a good product. Hell, by the time I get back and buying all new equipment those manufacturers may be in the area. Good to hear from you.

    I'm also thinking of buying a Z. I made a post -> http://lawnsite.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=46217 hoping someone would have a gravely 200 series to answer a couple questions i have.

    They look like awesome tools, unfortunately until my customer base gets a little larger i don't think i can afford one :mad: but, it's nice to dream
