    In case u guys want to know, I figured I owed some of u this much as to tell u which mower I was able to get. I went with the scag belt driven 36. I got a velky, extra blades, oil, and all for about $3600 including tax. Not a superb deal but at least I have a mean machine now ( at least compared to my 21 inch). I had tried the Gravely hydro with only 7 hours on it which was only $2900 inlcuding velky earlier today. It was fabulously easy to drive and I tried to get approved for it but wasn't. So i headed to the Scag dealer and went with what I knew I was approved for. I'm sure I'da liked that Gravely better, but nothing u can do. I figure if things continue to go well for me this year and next year is even that much better, I could always trade the scag in or sell it and upgrade to a hydro. BUt the Scag belt drive was fairly simple to control from my little test run I did on it. I'm excited! I pick it up tommorow. Too bad I got this damned poison ivy buggin'

    THanks guys! THat's really warm of u. I should have the mower picked up tommorow and will post some pics of it with trailer when I get it home. Boy am I going to be on a hunt for customers now! I'm kinda glad my lawn needs cutting too! I've got a descent size front and back so it should give me a bit more practice than my customer's yards as most of my Tues route is small 1/6-1/8 acre lots that require mostly 21 in. I feel like I'm about ready to rock-n-roll :)

    Yeah, it's a great color! Scag mowers really stand out!
