    I went to the dealership today and bought a Walker MT 23hp with a 42" deck.

    So as of today, my equipment list is:

    6'4" x 12" Trailer with 2' mesh sides - soon to have custom equipment racks
    2008 Walker MT GHS 23 hp - 42" deck
    Stihl BR550
    Stihl FS80R
    Stihl FC75
    Stihl HS45
    Stihl Backpack sprayer - Have only used it a couple of times for my own yard

    Gas Cans, Tarps, Shovels, Brooms, Rakes, Trash Cans, Etc.

    All Stihl Equipment was bought early this year. Trailer was bought last week. Walker bought today.

    Tomorrow, I am going to talk to the 8 people I turned down in the last 2 weeks because my push mower was too small to cut their yards.

    Wish me luck.

    At least you bought a walker. Thats should your entire selling point. Bagging, low ground pressure, insane stripes, etc.

    Did you give your 21" a proper burial?

    Complete with 'Here lies ol glory - she cut with the best of em' or something like that?

    :) Thanks. I am going to load the trailer in a little bit. I am going to take some pictures when I do.

    Thanks for the support.

    I refuse to bury the beast. She is in hibernation.
