    :) What do you guys or gals use as backup mowers? Mine is still an old 11hp murray 36", but the old B&S still works very good. Just wondering. TBT. Murray being a rider, that is.

    I have a Gravely 300 front deck rider. 20hp 60" cut. Very rarely is used, though.

    My backup is my old primary mower, a Black Rock 48" WB. I can also use my 36" Encore if I need to. For the last 2 days, I've been using the backup. I have had chronic problems with flat front caster tires. I ordered Zero Flats from J Thomas Monday and put them on when I got home tonight. I'm sure glad I kept the old WB
