    Here's my new Jungle Wheels sulky I got a few days ago. I found a similar one one on the net for about $90 cheaper but they wouldn't ship to FL. It's going to take some getting used to but it's much better than walking.

    You'll have to let us know how you like it after you use it for awhile.

    10-4 good buddy, I'm gettint better each time I use it. It's just when I do a zero turn I have to go real slow or it will throw me off. Really I will never walk again. Sulky's rule.

    When you turn around at the end of a pass to go and make another one, don't you make turf circles? I have a velke but I never use it because at the end of each row I manually turn the mower so the inside tire doesn't stay in the same spot the whole time. Any advice?

    Nice jungle jim though, I have a mower similiar to yours, its the ferris version.

    Nice setup you got there. I see that looks like maintenance meter on your metro?? I have one of those on my viking, a really good investment to keep track of hours. What part of Jax to you work in and how about how many accounts to you service?

    I have a jungle jim, i retired it for a proslide. The proslide is easier to use since it retracts by it self but I weigh so much that the mower will spin the tires alot during turns, might crack the jungle jim out until i can lose some weight. The jungle jim will get easy, took me like 3 uses to get used to it, but after that its easy, works good too.

    Yeh the meter has really come in handy. I only used the mower on my own yard 2 times before I put in on so it's pretty close to actual hours. It only cost $15.
    I work mostly on the SW side of town. I have some in Orange Park to, I Started the year with 12 accounts from last year. Now I have 30 with very little advertising. Maybe 100 flyers. Most new business has come from people just seeing in there neighborhood every week and liking my work. And I dropped four from last year.
    Hows business for you.
    Where in St. Augustine are you. I'll be down that way in a few weeks.
