    Although sometimes I wish I had of went with the 52" instead of the 48" deck my Toro Proline(Exmark) 48"deck 15hp Kolher has been a great buy. It runs great in wet grass now that I have adjusted the drive belt. It cuts great stripes nice as well. If the true Toro belt drives 52"floating deck run and pull as good as this it will definatley be my next purchase and than on to a ZTR. And by true I mean not Exmark/Toro. Had it almost a year now with no complaints. What do you own that your proud of.

    ok, i am not gonna get into everything. however. there is one thing that i have bought last year, that i really love. i bought a 16' open trailer, for landscaping. i put an old box on that, for tools. i put 2 yards of mulch or stone on it at a time. i have put a skid steer on there before, as well as a descent sized tractor w/loader. plants and all that other stuff. i would say for you new guys if you can swing it, buy an open trailer. another thing by the way - is the HT75 pole saw. that is really nice, i can do some jobs without even having to leave the ground, and where a pole saw will do the job, it saves lots of time and tired arms. only draw back is, if you get it stuck you gotta go up.
