This ever happen to you? I was nearing the end of my day and the clouds were getting pretty dark. Rain was in the forcast and I was running late. A 12 hour night shift, 5 lawns done and I had 3 to go. Anyway, I'm cutting in a beautiful $500k plus development and I pass a LCO doing one of the lawns. The guy does great work and I always wondered what equipment he used to lay such nice stripes. So I pull up, drop my gate and start cutting with my 52" TTHP with the ECS I bought off another member here. The lot I was cutting was about 3/4 of an acre. So I get done cutting on my Jungle Wheels in 4th gear and head to my trailer. Out of the corner of my eye, I see one of the LCO guys hustling towards me from about 6 houses away. I shut it down and think, here we go, what's on this guys mind. IMHO, I don't look like a "pro". Regular pickup with a tandem trailer, took my signs off the truck because I was getting too many calls and turning work I didn't need down, no uniform.....Needless to say, I was ready to think this guy wanted to voice his opinion. So I turn off my Peltors and he says, "I just had to see what you were using. You were flying compared to my Bobcat hydro". So I tell him it's an Exmark and I didn't have it up to full speed. "Go ahead....give it a try." I tell him. I run him through the basics with the ECS controls and he was off and going. How do you like the cut? He asks. Take a look.....as I point to the well fertilized, striped lawn. He then proceeds to run over my stripes demoing the machine. "Don't worry, I won't mess the lines up", he said with a laugh. So afterwards, we chit chat a little, talk about our insurance rates, he thanks me, and we part out ways. I think I just sold an Exmark.
