I know I am going to get it for this. I just took the plunge into full time lawn care a few weeks ago. Business has picked up at a steady rate this year. Minimal advertising, mostly word of mouth. And yes I mow with a "crapsman". 42" with 25hp. I've had it for a about a year and a half. It's all I can afford now, family, two small children. I know you guys bash these things, but it cuts pretty good. It's paid for. I have literally cut hundreds of yards with it, and all I have had to do to it is regular maintenence. My business is growing, and this thing is not made for this type of use. I will eventually upgrade to a commercial mower. I fact I am dying to buy one now. But, I am going to wait until I have to have one(probably next year). I have gotten nothing but compliments on my work. I just wanted to share this. Let the bashing begin.
