actually, the plan is to pull it with a 48" w/b. we'll have to extend the hitch, but i don't think it will be a problem. i tried to get suzjr to pull one manually. she wouldn't have any of it! i do think a lawn tractor would be the best way to go. i just don't have one right now. tractor is on the list, though. i plan to market this service as the YardMaid's YardStarter Program. see my post titled "sequence of service". all the newly installed lawns are just like this one. including mine!
