How do u like that snapper pro? Looking at the ferris version on a 36
Posted via Mobile Device
I've only put about 3.5 hours on it, but so far so good. It rides really well and has a great cut with the ICD deck.
it's easy when you're solo. the same setup every day. the 21" pushmower is only loaded when needed. i think i have only 1 account where i use it at this point. i also have an edger now in the back of the truck as well not shown in the picture.
Just wondering what's in the backpack sprayer?
rounddown oops i mean roundup.
i'm not a full service company. i don't do fert and squirt and i don't really trim shrubs or do landscaping. i have done a very few shrub jobs and mulch jobs. there's just not much of a market for major landscaping jobs where i live. most people do the landscaping and shrub trimming themselves on the weekends here.
I like your setup, and your Deere. Im drooling
thanks. i got a great deal on it 2 years ago. paid $7900 for it brand new.
what do you do on hilly property's do you use the push???? Thanks for the pics , nice set up , also do you use the backpack blower on every property or do you have a handheld , we normally just use the handheld for smaller prop , and the backpack blowers for bigger ones.
For either a one or two-man crew, I feel the most efficient setup is:
*One 48" - 52" walk-behind mower w/detachable sulky
*One 32" - 36" walk-behind mower w/detachable sulky
*One dedicated string trimmer
*One 2-stroke powerhead with string trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer, and pole pruner attachments
*One blower per crew member
Conversely, the equipment above would do best on turf areas under 1 acre. Larger properties would be better served with a larger deck mowing it.
Hey LandFakers, how does that toolbox setup on your trailer work with your turning/reversing radius for backing? I have been looking into putting one on mine but wasnt sure how it would work out. Have not tested as of yet.
