    Saw the funniest thing today, this guy that lives down the road from me has a lawn company but he keeps his equipmetn somewhere else, well i see him today on another street on a yard that would take a 2 man crew 15 mins to do, he had 2 guys on 36" homeowner mowers, i've seen them before but can't remember the name but they're junk, 2 guys with pushmowers, and a guy trimming. lol a 5 person crew! It was too great seeing this, i got there when they pulled up and i watched them do the yard and it still took them over 10mins to do.

    the fact that it took so long with so many guys and just the look of it all. I was with my friend and i said i wish i had a camera, they were walking/riding and getting in each others way, actually it would be the stupidest thing i've seen in awhile but it was funny at the same time. Plus they had 3 of the guys ride in the bed of the truck and 2 in the cab. Just a funny situation (i hope no one on here has a 5 man crew for a tiny yard like this :D )

    i guess that i think of it, it would be humorous to see. Two man crews are efficient.

    toro makes a 38" or something, thats what one guy was using, the other was some blue thing, i remember seeing one but didnt look at the name because its just one big plastic shell and looked cheaply built. Also exmark is making their homeowner z's now, ariens make a homeowner one, theres quite a few.
