    Greetings:
    These late model mowers are out of a LCO in Fort Worth, Tx. Some had less than 500 hours!!! and had been cannibalized!!!
    This ZTR boneyard is nominated in the ZTRxchange "Hall of Shame" for the month of May!!

    ztrx I've seen the pictures you have posted on another thread and I am getting to feel for you. I agree with you totally. If you work hard to get what you have then you look after your equipment and you take good care of it! To see those trashed mowers is heartbreaking!
    Too have 6 or 7 ± $8000 ea. mowers (some of them with 500 hrs on the clock) trashed in your backyard does NOT say alot about your ability to be a good business owner or manager.
    I dont have much hope for that LCO (is he really a LCO?).

    looks like the mowers are perfectly fine. maybe he took the front wheels off to keep them from being stolen?

    Greetings:
    Some LCO do not have any sense when it comes to taking care of their equipment. These are just a few of 100s of machines that I have come across over the years.

    I totally agree that is an awful waste of equipment but you have to wonder. Did the company just want to lose money due to equipment failure?
