    Hello this is my first post here...from Newmarket Ontario...looking to start my second career in Lawn maintenance next spring. Right now looking for a commercial walk behind mower, have been researching the Toro 22297 any thoughts on this mower? Any suggestions on equipment suppliers with good prices in the York region? Thanks

    Hi,just wanted to see if any other plowers have problems with the town workers & local police,while out working?
    We've been told to go home cuz it's to early,town plows weren't out yet.(@3-4am)
    Is this even a Law???
    We need o.p.p. Instead of local police here.

    Well guys I just put away the equipment for the year. I thought I'd ask around on here and get some feedback.

    How was the MTO/OPP in your area this year? How many times were stopped or inspected, any tickets?

    I was stopped a total of three times this year and never have been stopped before. Just a thought for anyone who hasn't- be on guard for what certifications you need whether its a CVOR tag or just the green annual sticker for a safety inspection on your truck and trailer. Keep things strapped down, make sure your lights and brakes work. Make sure you safety chains are not worn beyond 20% and for the love of all things holy do NOT overload your truck and trailer.

    For past 2 years I drive on 401 3-4 times a week and in GTA area with white f250 logos on side lawns mowers trimmers tools etc. on it.
    I dont have a yellow commercial sticker since I got the truck 2 years.
    Never got pulled over.
    But I do hear ppl getting nailed more often.
    Best is to keep things safe and proper, u do it for ur self 1st then the public.
