    Im fit but I like getting done ASAP!... I did take my sulky off my 36 Toro for now. Once we start hit the 90's and 100's I'll be putting it back on.

    I walk all my lawns. I am very fit, competitive tennis and hit the gym 4 days a week.

    Pretty fit here...and will get more fit as we get into summer.
    I only use a Quick mower, no sulky. My lawns are 1/2 ac or less - not big enough for a ZTR and I want better cut quality than a Z will give.

    So, I walketh thine own buns off.....
    31 years old by the way, will think differently in 10 yrs I suppose:)

    Riding a ztr is time efficient, but I'd rather walk to stay fit .....

    I am fit but the ztr cuts my time down like crazy.
     
  9. We're on the big machines so much we compete for the trimming work. We're lucky to get in 2 hours per day of real physical activity.

    I consider myself pretty fit as well. But if I did this for the exercise, I'd join a gym.

    I do this for the income, so I sit on "my fat butt" because it's more than twice as fast as a walk-behind.:)
