    these aren't the best pictures or my stuff, as i don't have the trimmer rack or blower rack installed on the trailer yet, and the craftsman is on the trailer instead of the lawnboy. but i just waxed and polished the truck and wanted to show it off. (and if you saw my other thread about makinga shed, the current one is in the third pic, yea i know it's small.)

    How many lawns do you have and what can you do in a day?

    i do a pretty small amount, 10-1 acre props, and 1-15acre prop. a weekday that i'm in school, i can do three, but i could do up to five if i pushed it. in the summer i could get everyone of them excpet for the 15 acre done in a day, but in the summer heat, i'd be dead, so spread out through three and a half days works well, and give me plenty of extra time.

    Yea I know about that summer heat. You would remember that week with 3 days of 100 degree days in a row. Well I'm solo and had a 103 fever for those days. What sucked is I still had to do 12 a day to stay on schedule. That week sucked

    i remember it well, I thought that i was going to pass out after using the 21" on a hill for 15 mins. The tractor and my water bottle were my best friends then.
