    buckled the rear of the bed on the bottom midway between the bumper and tire. i was mad and kicked it a few times and it surprising looks decent considering. the bumper doesnt look too bad but is pushed in. new garage doors went in today, $2800. we hit 2 garage doors plowing this year too, another $1000 in repairs. of course it was for customers who complained 12" wasnt close enough to thier doors and they couldnt get out of the 3" of snow. so, this year trying to keep them happy i cost myself alot. NO MORE FAVORS, 2' is as close as we have been getting since

    on a side note just put 2 new batteries in the f550. 3 days later both are dead! i guess ill have to look for what is causing the draw on them. i cant win. did i mention we had a contractor walk off with $6500 towards re-doing our bathroom? or that im having the Attorney General's office formally investigate CT's Dept. of consumer protection Lemon Law unit? Please STAY AWAY FROM ME! there is a large black cloud following me around

    considering upgrading to another v-plow. anyone have any intersest in a meyer 8.5' MD2 plow with all wiring/frame for 99-04 f250/f350. $2500. if much less it wont be worth cost to jump at the upgrade

    after running bobcats since 1996, i bought my first non bobcat used 2 years ago, it was a nearly new scag turf tiger. well...after difficutly trying to get a new bobcat predator pro with the special order 33hp gernerac over the standard 37 DFI kawi I decided to make the switch. here she is, 35 briggs big block. more power than i know what to with.

    You'll like that machine. I've got 3 of them now, all the same-61 inch deck, 35hp Briggs big block. Great machine, lots of power and not all that bad on gas.

    Just a word of advice/warning, and they may have fixed it in recent models, but on ours one of the fuel lines that goes into the vacuum pump on the top of the engine block runs over something instead of under it (or the other way around) and because its routed that way it is a hair short and over time works its way off the nipple of the vacuum pump. This allows a little air to mix in and the vacuum end of things just doesnt work the way it should. Shuts down the engine and its near immpossible to start unless you figure that out. Just check it out now and be good to go.

    thanks...your right, tons of power. shes also a thirsty girl though. I got into the habbit of no longer carring an extra gas can and makign sure the mowers are completely fuel in the morning. well, she ran empty today. we worked 10 hours today and it used almost twice as much as the 33hp generac. i was surprised. the 33hp almost has as much power too.

    How do you like the Turf Tigers compared to the Bobcats? Do you ever find them to large of a machine?

    absolutely, i wish it was shorter with the same power/pumps etc. the both have great pros and cons. it came down to price and distance to the dealer
