    Im interested in the 52" Pro-Stance or the 52" Pro-Steer walk behind. Tough call...How about you?

    Great looking work. I like the truck lettering and mowing setup.

    Could have been better and could have been worse. We lost a lot of money not having enough help. Hopefully we solved that by hiring another guy who starts in a couple weeks. How was your year?

    Great year, but I have to make a decision whether to make my two part time helpers full time and expend next year. Not looking forward to the head aches but I need to grow. Hope we have a better plowing season than last year, I only plowed three times!!

    Expansion and employees = headaches. That was our main problem this year, going from one 3 man crew to two 2 man crews. I hope we have a repeat of last year plowing, we plowed a total of 54 hrs. We made a killing with our plowing contracts :drinkup:

    Nice 180s. No scuffing from the look of it. Nice machine too.

    Thanks man!! Many years of mowing in wet conditions has taught me a lot about being easy on turf...

    Hi GMLC, in spite of my many year experience, I still scuff if I'm not paying attention. Mine is a JD Zero turn. I watched the way you do it very carefully so that I can try your technique this spring.

    What camera were you using?
