    Thats right folks, step up to the plate and be the first to see the new Frankenscagmark creation from BushHogBoy!!!

    It's a 32" Toro floating deck walk behind with a 8hp B&S I/C engine, 5 speed Peerless transmission and manual steering (like a Troy Bilt or Sutech Stealth 33"). As you can see it cuts and stripes great. It has a full width deck roller on the floating deck to give a great cut and stripe. Single lever height adjust (the ugly tower and lever up front).

    No that's not scalping in the foreground, it's still-dormant grass :mad:

    It even pulls a sulky on dry/level ground.

    It will primarily be used for getting through gates, on small lawns and as a backup for the Scag. Won't use the sulky on it much but it is nice to be able to. It tracks surprisingly straight on level ground or going straight up or down hills (not sideways).

    Maybe you should make the castor wheels a little bit bigger? Say you were mowing a soft spot, those things would make some pretty deep ruts, unless there isn't much weight in the front?

    If you would focus your time on making money and less on spending it buying projects, you probably would have the money to buy a new Lazer by now.;)

    Hoss I can see where you are coming from but this is a young man who is actually designing and fabricating working mowers and implements. Hope he thinks as lawn care as a side line until he gets that engineering degree and builds something to revolutionize the industry. Now that I have said all these nice things, Hey BHB I have a 15 year old daughter so stay out of my neighborhood:D

    I have been thinking this for quite sometime now. After high school maybe you should stay out of the LCO business and go to college and get an engineer degree.
