This season I am putting the 52" deck on the Exmark TTHP so my helper can use it to accompany the 52" Ferris Z on larger properties, and it would be more useful that way in some places. But, on our small properties with gates and such, we still need 36". I thought of phasing out a couple of my less favorite small accounts, then using the Lawn Boy 21" on the rest, but I remembered some people we know are wantin to sell their 36" JD belt drive w/b with my old sulky that I sold them last summer (tough thing, heavier than other 2 wheeler's) anyway, I was thinking of seeing if they wanted to trade it to me for some mowings. They have a 4 acre yard. They have a Husqvarna junky lawn tractor too. They live right behind my new shop so no problem to do it of an evening or send my helper over there to do it or we both do it. For the amount I am thinking of offering, it wouldn't really be quite worth it this season, but it would be a great deal to them and the mower would last long enough to make it worth it. I've used it before at their house, it cuts and stripes pretty well for a John Deere. I'm not really a JD guy at all, but my Ferris dealer is also a JD dealer so thats not a big deal. I think it maybe a GS30 but not sure? Think its a 12.5hp Kohler or else a 15hp but it is a Kohler. Clean little mower, not abused at all. Kept garaged always, paint and plastic not even faded. Nice little mower but I'm not too experienced with John Deere walk behinds. I hate that its belt drive but its not a major issue, most of the backyards to use it in are fairly open. It would be good to retain these clients and be able to take on more like them, and not have to use the 21", because I've already decided the big deck is going back on the TTHP (have a 36" on it now but also have the 52" deck). I would take the sulky off that JD and put it on my TTHP as my ProSlide is shot. Any opinions on these mowers? Would I regret it? Thanks, Eric Sorry for rambling, but hopefully you get a better idea of where i'm coming from and what I intend to use it for. It probably would see only a couple hours of use a week, so not much wear at all. I know in '04, the TTHP 36" only got an hour a week use most of the time (installed hourmeter/tach on it) but this year I'm sure we'll take on a few more gated yards if we have a 36" otherwise I will give away a couple of the gated lawns I have now, and pass on any others that come my way. Hate to throw away that money, the customers I have are decent customers and they know me as reliable and being for them but can't see any point in doing them with a push mower and they wouldn't pay more for it, especially since they didn't ask me to use it.
