    Hey guys i've been on this site for a couple of weeks lurking and finally made a purchase...

    John Deere z445 48" cut, 25hp kawasaki
    John Deere Backpack blower
    John Deere Trimmer

    I went with the 48 because i have only 10 accounts and they are all residential. I just started this business to get some extra money.(Yes i'm doing it the right way:weightlifter:) I call myself Elite Lawn Care. I like the name but anyways i'm not looking to go big into this, i just wanted to do something on the side.... here is the crappy picture that i took about 45 minutes ago....

    BTW, this site is filled with a lot of great information... Thanks

    Is that a residential mower? The deck looks stamped, not fabricated.

    I'm pretty sure it is residential. But, for 10 yards a week, you shouldn't beat it up too bad.

    Nice Equipment.

    yeah it's not the 7 iron deck, but i did not want the commercial mower for just 10 yards a week....it does the job quite nicely

    Nice stuff. Not too many guys with Deere handhelds, but a lot of green mowers. Let us know how that mower holds up.
