    Hey guys! My names Jake Gmoser owner of Gmoser's Lawncare & Snow Removal. I am 21 years old and I live in Traverse City, MI. I started my business last spring, I only had a total of 6 mowing accounts last year (all residentials). This year I am currently mowing about 45 properties and 2 being condominium areas. I have put everything I have into this business and all profits to date have pretty much been reinvested in the business, last year I had 1 48 walk behind and a older chevy, currently I know have a 721D (52 inch/diesel) front mount grasshopper which I love lol and a 52 hydro walk behind (a scag and ferris, though the scag is hardly used at this time). I hope to continue this thread for a long time to come, I enjoy reading everyones post and looking at there pics. I really have learned a lot from this site and I hope to be a regular from now on! Comments are welcome! Take it easy tho, this is only my second season in the biz and I am learning more and more every day!

    Excuse any spelling errors, I am in a huge hurry and I just figured out how to upload pics.

    I like that you went with the diesel. That is the way to go, it uses less fuel than the same mower with a gas engine.

    Yea it's great, I looked at a 721 kubota gas and a 725 gasser, but I felt like the diesel was the way to go, I think all future purchases aside from walk behinds will be diesel powered. I can go about 6 hours on one tank with the grasshopper and only about 3-4 hours on the ferris which has the 17 horse kaw on it. Thanks for the reply!

    haha the first picture for a quick second I thought the scag was some sort of mower with a roll cage on it.
