    You are joking right ? :dizzy:


    I never get stopped for noise in the 24V not even when I was driving around with an open down pipe for close to a year !


    Running a 5 inch turbo back now, still get the disgusted look from people at traffic lights then they close the windows real quick :laugh:

    classic!!! i understand you have the 60 turf tracer, which is a walkbehind, but whats the purpose of walkbehind that big, just to save weight, for areas that might not drain as well? i can't imagine a 60" wb fitting many more places then a 60" ztr. i would think it would be close on the hills. i always thought walk behinds were for extreme hills and to get though smaller gates, so that's why a lot of guys buy 52", 48" and 36" walkbehinds. but the 60 doesn't seem like it would be much better for anything other then areas that don't drain well, i do suppose it would be a little safer on hills.

    The walkbehinds are good for alot of things. They are night and day better on hills, you can mow under trees/bushes much better then a z-mower can, they are great for tight spots, They do much better on wet lawns and wont rut the grass like the z-mowers do. they do alot better on fuel, etc etc

    Every good lawn rig should have Atleast 1 walkbehind and 1 z-mower.

    i understand, i just didn't think a 60" walk behind would that great on a hill that's all, i do have some accounts that are a little sketchy running a 60" ztr on some of the hills. and a few where 52 or 48" would fit better.

    Hey Pro, throw some angles on those fairways! LOL I went back to all walkbehinds and if you saw my properties, you would understand. They do indeed have a niche. Funny about the cops, I set off an alarm friday when my new guy got a little too close to an AC unit. (Client still in The winter digs in Fla.) Cop pulls up and sees me, just waves and splits.
