What do you do first, ride or trim? and why?
I always mow first. I figure if you can't get it with the mower, you can get it with the trimmer. Can't always get what you miss with the trimmer using the mower.
Same here. But I do run the stick edger first, then mow, then trim what ever is still sticking up.
Normally I mow first, but once in a while I'll run the trimmer first to change things up...then I remember why I run the mower first, so I don't have to go back with the trimmer again to touch up areas I can't get with the mower.
I do have one very large property with a lot of trimming so I always start out trimming there. Usually trim about a third of the property then hop on the Z and trim the rest after mowing. Kind of breaks up the trimming.
Depends if were bagging the property or not. I like to trim and edge first that way every thing is vacumed up.
i trim and edge first and then mow
I mow and then trim.
On the really hot days when I'm doing a large condo complex I trim first so I can be sitting down on my mower during the peak heating hours of the day. Otherwise I mow first.
Ohhhh no, not the 'egg or the chicken' threads again
It depends on the property -
If it's an older account that I already know exactly where I can and cannot get with the mower, I will trim first... it looks cleaner that way.
I always edge and blow last... it leaves a nice crisp edge.
