    Thanks Jeff.

    Yes, the 21" is self propelled, 5 speed.

    If you like your js63's, you'd love the jx75. The 6hp kawasaki engine is great. It has .75hp less then your engine, but it probably has more torque and feels more powerful.

    Blade clutch is also a plus...if there is a stick or some trash in the way, all you have to do islet go, pick it up, and keep mowing. Don't have to restart it. Also nice if you bag a lot.

    Almost every picture I posted was taken when the equipment was new. It does not stay that clean, although I blow them off at the end of the day and try to wash them about once a month. They never have or never will recieve a coat of wax:)


    Almost forgot...I added brakes to the trailer. Trailer side costed about $200 which includes (2) electric brake assemblies, (2) drum and hub assemblies, breakaway kit, wiring, and 7-pin plug.

    I didn't have a brake controller in the truck either so that was another $100.

    It was easy to do and well worth it IMO. Stops a lot better now.

    I love the lettering on your truck. It is a must to have B I G eyegrabbing letters. Another thing I like about the lettering is that you didn't put too much info, to read quickly. Simply: lawn mowing and snow plowing.

    Overall terrific looking rig.

    Nice Equipment GLS!

    Randy2625- You can wire two battery up in two different way.
    1st is called a parallel connection which is what GLS did like already said you simply add another battery and connect the positive to positive and negitive to negitive terminals. Then pull your negitive charge and positive charges form seperate batteries.

    2nd is call a series connection which is where you connect a positve terminal from one battery and a negitive terminal from the other then pull you positve and negitve charges from the two remaining terminals again on seperate batteries.

    Which one you will need is depenant on what the use is. The series connection is what most disieltruck are setup on. They require alot of voltage all at one time. A parallel

    Sorry hit the wrong button. A parallel circuit will double your amp/hour therfore allowing you to be able to run more electrical equipment.

    Just cruising this post - Series hook up doubles voltage - do not use or you'll fry stuff!
