    I'd like a permagreen carrying rack but I can't get past how much weight that puts on rear end of my truck

    I like the exmark riders the most, hustler/bobcats/scags are a close second, ive had good luck with ferris walk behinds, those old generation lazers might not drive like the new ones but they are built like tanks, did you buy the older one you had used? I know you have your new one but the old ones make great backup machines.

    The older lazer was a loaner while the 34hp lazer was
    In the shop. I have a 34 and 29. Yes i sold the
    Vantage too. I loved it but our properties are getting larger and a rider is more productive.

    I traded the kubota zg222 and the kubota b7300 for the vantage. Used the vantage almost all season long. Bought the 2013 lazer and put the vantage up for sale. If it hadn't sold by seasons end I was just going to keep for next year. I used the $$ from the vantage to pay off some
    Debt and pad the savings account for winter
