    Nope, just using the eXmark that's shown in the first page. Last time I touched a reel mower was back in '89, and it was one of those antique ones that I got from my great grandfather.

    We have pest control accounts in Hilmar, and I've advertised there, but never picked up any lawn accounts out that way.

    I think one of the companies out that way has their shop across the street from Hilmar Cheese. I don't recall the name of it though. Also, I think Grover works over there too. Wouldn't surprise me. They're really big, and service a ton of locations throughout our county.

    Looks like you're cutting a lot off in one pass. I try to cut only about 1/3 of the height at once.

    Cutting that much in one pass isn't my regular routine fortunately. That lawn I was cutting was just way overgrown compared to how it should've been. It got skipped during the previous week because I couldn't get in the backyard. I figured I'd try cutting it down in one shot to see how this mower would handle it, and it did a great job. So I took the pic at that time just to show what this mower was capable of. I don't recommend doing that on a daily basis though. Haha

    Wow, that's impressive for mowing grass that tall. Got my eye on the 30" also. Love eXmark!!!
