    I was cutting a convenient store this afternoon and the ugliest thing I ever saw was sitting on a trailer at a gas pump. I mean it was UGLY. You don't see these around here any, but it was UGLY.
    My guys stopped weedeating and checked out this thing because it was SO UGLY. Guess what it was.

    Yep that was it, a strange sight around here- no dealers that I know of even close, the only difference it had knobby tires on back, kinda like atv tires.

    So can your pretty mowers make lawns look much better than the ugly mowers can? If so, please post them so we can see them.

    I think all mowers are ugly, but as along as they make me money and keep on going for thousands of hours, who the heck cares what they look like. At least the main parts you see on them do not rust.

    They are a strange sight, once you get used to seeing them they probably are as common as an exmark, point I was making is you rarely see one around here. I agree all mowers are ugly with that one hitting a 10 on the ugly scale, I'd rather look at a pretty blonde anyday. No harm intended just cracking on you chopper guys. I need to get a digital camera so I can put up some pics, Truth is, I can't seem to get the exmark or scag to put stripes that good in St. Augustine or Centipede -so I guess you win on the stripes. I think you northerners grasses just stripe better.

    yo eric!--one of the several problems I would have in showing you stripes and cuts like that is I aint got no grass to cut like that!

    and if anybody else does then I missed it when they posted the pic!

    zip, zilcho, zingo, NADA when it comes to grass that nice!

    GEO;)
