Hey this is my first post here and I had some questions for yall. 1. I know that this has been beaten to death but I still want to know more. How do i make a stripper for my mower. I see some made with chains but some of them dont go all the way across the deck like only 40". Also with a stripper do you just cut like you normally would? Thanks. 2. Right now all i can afford is Home Depot quality weed eaters and leaf blowers. Are these even worth the money or should I just save up and get a few nice ones? 3. What are some jobs that yall do in the off season? My name is Zach and I have been cutting grass for 3 years. I just got a TORO Z 48" with the 19hp Kawi. I have about 15 yards and am looking for more.
