    Glad to see your rebuilding stuff. I'd hate to be in your spot but I do admire you as most of the others on here probably do for keeping your head up and pushing through.

    Nice dump, that thing's sweet. Exmark makes bagging easy with the ultravac. Simple, reliable, and effective. I'd love to see the difference between a triple and double bagger.

    damn man those tornado pictures look rough!...looks like your gettin' things back together though...on the plus side if everything was insured you can almost start over and get exactly what you want

    Yea, we are... It has to be done...

    Not yet... It did at one time, and its a 6 sp, i think i said 5... It has the hookups for a under tailgate spreader too!

    Yea, it wasnt all insured tho... Just the red truck, trailer, a few mowers, then misc... The house was too... Luckily.... Its nice to be able to choose tho like you said...

    Thanks man

    We gont have a badder on ours, that was a 52in loner till our 60in came in... We are really really considering a bagger tho... That thing was so sweet...
