Alright there we go. Hopefully its a little easier to figure out next time haha. The rig is dirty because the few drops of rain we got a couple days ago. She cleans up well though.

I have another 21" plan to use for a back up til I i can justify buying another commercial 21''
Hopefully buying this toro new will keep e in the clear for a little while anyways. But to answer your question yes it is my only mower to speak of. I cant justify going and buying anything bigger with the size yards I have right now. I am only servicing 4 yards right now but hope to grow that number by spring. The big truck is my powerwashing truck its a 2001 Chevy 6500 with a Cat 3126 I built the bed myself. It is loaded with a 300 gal fresh water tank, 275 gal reclame tank under the black cover and a 4.5 gal. 5000 p.s.i. Pressure washer. The vacuum tank is driven with a jurop vacuum pump and 24 hp. Honda. I built this rig to do basically anything we wanted to do. I do anything from parking lots washing and striping to houses and our main account is a fleet of trucks we do on weekends. I also own a 2003 dodge 3500 that I will be pulling the trailer with when I dont need the washer. I bought the trailer a couple months ago and got a really good deal on it and im doing a little tlc to get it like i want it. The reason i decided to go into lawn care is because I seen there can be a potential for money and to be able to maybe expand both the washer business and the lawn maintenance at the same time. I look forward to reading all the great info on here and if I can answer any question on info that i may have I will def. Be more than willing.

Wow. Not an ideal mowing truck. If you are only push mowing you could get an S-10 and put the push mower in the back and save 75% on fuel costs.
