    Ok so that wasnt much of a post above....not sure why it submitted??? Anyway I am solo and have been running a Exmark Lazer Z HP 48 inch only. But today I found a deal too good to pass up. I bought a 98 Bobcat 48 inch hydro walkbehind, looks like new and a 98 walker 48 inch GHS with only 674 hours. I know some of your opinions are not good of the walker but I like them and they are very popualr around here. I feel like I have a mower for most every application, except for large area mowing. I bought these mowers from the original owner. They were not used comercially and were serviced by the shop he bought them at. I got both mowers for $7000. SO you think I did ok?

    Hey Triad

    I see we are very close. How is your season going so far? We are playing catch up hard from the rain earlier this week.

    We just got in from a long one today, but tommorrow should be smooth. I only have about 17 regulars right now with a few half steppers wanting me to let it grow a extra week or 2 to save money, you know the type. Until the schedule gets full I have to deal with that kinda stuff. Were growing a little everyday.

    Ok guys I have a question about the new bobcat walkbehind. Of course the guy I got it from didnt have the owners manual. I want to lower the deck height. I see the spacers on the front is that all I have to do to change the height? The john deere walkbehind I used to have had four adjustments. Seems the deck could not cut level if its not straight? I could be wrong though. Thanks in advance for your answers.
