    What kind of fuel usage do you notice? How many hours does that 5 gallons last?

    I'll have to keep track of the fuel/hours next time we fill.

    The controls come naturally. They are basically the same as our wright stander. I have never used a different type on a hydro walk, so i cant compare. Did demo a ferris 52" wb, horrible control system! Anyway, i like the controls.

    Nice equipment. How often do you wash/clean the decks and how often do you sharpen your blades? Keep up the nice work.

    Our mowing equipment is seldom actually washed (every once in a while). The decks get scraped based on "juiciness" of grass... Sometimes thats daily (or more), but usually every week or two. We try to change to sharp blades weekly, but sometimes it doesn't happen for 2 wks. Probably should do it more often.

    Brought big orange along on this one due to long distance mulch transportation. 17mph +/- beats the 3-4 mph on the miniskid for the long trips.

    Back at the "shop" doing some routine maintenance. These 18V impact drivers work great for blade changing. We actually got this one free many years ago with the purchase of a combo set. Glad we got it, never would have thought it would work this good.

    Last one. Just a random "shop shot". Keeping the granular pesticides out of the rain without having to handload everyday.
