I don't normally post or read in this forum because Florida Landscape and northern Landscape is so different. I was looking for small Lift that would not tear up turf for small installs and Plant or tree replacement. A few month ago we bought an old Jacobson Trim King Triplex greens mower from the school broad for $35.00. Yep it ran great but the reels were rusted up bad. These mowers are very available because they are only used on sports turf. we welded a motor lift on the front and made outriggers with caster wheels all hydraulic operated. Total cost of parts was $1,500. About 50 man hours of labor. First day I used it, it paid for itself. Planted a 16 ft. AO Royal palm with a yard of root ball. Also Torn out 15 year old shrubs like pulling weeds. Never had to fix the turf.
