    there she is! i just got it home, test ran it on my small yard, spraying water.. it was easy to get through the 4 ft. gate. i do not believe its gonna be very hard to get the hang of. probably will be putting it to work when my next rounds start back up in a few weeks!

    thanks for all the input as well!

    Looks good. Loose the hopper cover when you driving down the road or it will blow off. I need to post some pics of our rigs. Yours looks great.

    Did they start placing the oil drain hose in a better spot? I emailed the factory a pic of where we placed ours and suggested they choose a more serviceable spot. Congrats!

    What made you choose the intermediate over the junior 36?

    i figured the wider machine with bigger tires would be better on hills. it can still fit through a 4 ft gate anyways, more fertilizer capacity. the one they had at JDL had the foam marker kit installed (which has been nice). It was only 400 more. I think its a good size for what i'm doing.

    You'll be able to do some monster properties with that! Thumbs Up

    Great thing is, it'll make the 5-15,000 ft sq lawns easier to do as well. Your new productivity is about to amaze you.

    We have a Standard Jr.(42"W) fitted with the Intermediate Hopper and we also have a Jr.36. Love them both...

    You may wonder about the others out there but I can promise you, you'll never regret the purchase you just made.

    Ted, what do you think about a Jr36 working on 5-10k sq ft lawns? Reasonably doable?
