    Today while mowing two half acres side by side I hear a clicking noise coming from one of the Hydros on my Super Z. I load the trailer and head to my local dealer to drop it off to be fixed and then go home to pick up my backup mower. I get back to the next job, mow it with the backup mower and then fire up the Kawi trimmer only to have it blow the gear head half way through the job. Just one of those days I guess.

    In this business you need three of each, I learned the hard way. You can never have to much equipment. Just dont have a week like that.

    Ed -- Sorry about your day ... by the way, aren't you the one that wrote the field test report for Turf magazine for the Great Dane Surfer and Super Surfer ?? If so, man that really was just some bad timing with ACI closing down the plant just last week!!

    We all have those days every once in awhile. I guess it was your turn. All you can do is keep plugging away and remind yourself that it will get better. Me personally, I've had one of those days for a week now. In retrospect, I had it coming. But there's light at the end of tunnel and I don't believe it's a train.

    Let us know if it was a pump or wheel motor and what the problem was.
