    Mowing a Large Wide Open eXpanse of Turf with What looks to be a 44" Toro Belt Drive w/No Riding Attachment ?

    If we Were Cutting this w/That Equip. it Would be for a Loss....Prices Must be Good Somewhere !

    At the end of the day you gotta start somewhere!

    Maybe just early days for the guy!

    Maybe he's just minding his overheads....

    You should have stopped & asked him?

    Maybe his bigger mower, possibly a 60" ZTR, is in the shop, and he is using his back up mower.

    Or maybe not........

    Or maybe he's making more than you think on this job and he's doing just fine.
