    Are you running solo Andrew or do you have an employee now? Pictures look great. I am impressed with that mower. Im sure it has been asked before but how many gpm is the hyd flow on the 50d? I might be in the market for one for the 334 pretty soon.

    Thanks Derek :drinkup: The shoreline job is evolving even more as it's a 2-stage project now: a quick temporary repair to the existing wall followed by building a rip rap wall infront of the wall once the permits come in. Should be a fun job once everything is lined up :cool2: Should be starting the first stage in a few weeks.

    Profound difference that that mower makes. I really want to see what I am missing, being on the low side of the flow curve.

    Sean- I hired my first employee recently. Probably one of the best things I have done for my business yet. I'm hoping to train him to become a foreman to run my jobs so I can spend more time on marketing and expanding the business.

    The 50D puts out 22.5 gpm. While it does a great job, it really makes me want a 160D with a mulcher. :cool2:

    Thomas- I'm still trying to figure out how to mount a camera to take a video of the mower in action. I think the only differences you'll see is that the mower might have a little faster spool up time and be able to get stumps a little lower to the ground.

    Thanks Willie!

    In addition to my line clearing work, I'm doing many small side jobs as well. One job was at Talus' place last Sunday where we ripped out all the stumps left from clearing last year as well as many rocks that would make future grading tough.

    Project overview shot:

    Some of the stumps that were removed:

    Digging as deep as she will go:

    Big hole for big rocks:
