    Thanks guys, I am going to put a jack on it in the morning and see what it will take. I have a backup 52 walkbehind (older unit) so it might be getting a work out. The only bad thing is, I twisted my ankle getting the freaking lazer off the trailer tonight. Hurts like a bi@%h and it starting to swell a little. I should have just let the sob run into the wall. lol

    While I am at it, I am going to put a new blade belt on it too.

    Ya i want to get another 60 lazer that way stripes match up. But i need to find someone that i can trust to work along side of me and do the quality of work that i require. Ill kill myself if i keep this up.

    Seems like I've got more work now that requires some push mowing so I think its time to move up to a self propelled 21"er. trying to find a decent one without dumping lot of money into it. I like the exmark 26 metro but thats way out of budget. Usually just buy cheap crapsman ones lol and just replace after a couple years.

    If you can find yourself an old toro with the suzuki engine on it 2 cycle get that before the exmark. Rhinoll, on here has the 21 exmark and it seems like he has some major issues with that thing. I hear the 26 incher's are just way to heavy.

    I picked up a personal pace one from there a couple of years ago. I use that as my back up to my commercial 21 toro. It runs pretty good. The only thing, it is the alumunim deck. But other than that I am happy with it. I keep it at my Mom;s and use it there.

    I agree. I rarely use the 21 just on some very small areas and a couple of hills when it is wet out. Which this years mean at least 10 times a week. lol

    I am going to bed, my ankle is screaming and I am taking some medicine for that. Catch you all tommorrow and I hope we all can get some work done.

    We are about 15 miles east of Marion. If you ever need help with work over that way. Give me a holler. Especially in the winter.
