    How long are you guys gonna wait before you get back to cutting? I know out East you guys got a lot more rain...but this thing is clearing off and moving up the coast...so when will you head back out to cut?

    Well I know the Lawns have been getting doused in a lot of places...but Im hoping they'll hold up okay when cutting. Thats my main concern.

    Its STILL raining here. I took the mower to my own yard and about got stuck....Id rather my customers be mad I didn't cut them this week than be mad I messed up their lawn.

    I will go back to mowing residentials on Tuesday.

    We planned to cut today but after touring a few yards we were not willing to tear the yards with the Z's or walkbehinds. I would rather wait than tear up a yard. Should be good tomorrow. I see guys out cutting all the time just after a rain storm and don't understand how they get away with it.

    Is anyone running a diesel Z mower? They are substantially heavier than the gas powered mowers. How are the lawns standing up to 1600lbs per week?
