    I was at the deere dealer and noticed over 50 new john deere zero turns, 4 new gators with liquid fert spray tanks and some other new equipment. I asked them what they are for since they where all put to the side . The manager told me a local lawn company is trading in there old mowers for new ones. I could not believe it. Some where 72 inches others had some tweels but not every mower had tweels. None had suspension seats. I guess they choose what they needed and figured tweels not required on every mower in there fleet. I would love to write the check for that purchase.

    When it's time to upgrade it's time to upgrade!

    The real question is how often are they upgrading. Every 5 years or 30?

    I would love to be able to write a check like that, but I would hate doing it.

    It would be ok so long as the check was on someone else ‘s account.

    500k on Mowers. For that I could charter a private jet to a beach and buy all the corona I’d ever need

    But there’s no grass to mow on the beach?
