    Nice job,appears to be doing a nice job on the lawn. I like the fact that these mowers take a big swath and leave the lawn flat

    Great job on the mower. That grass looks great.....all you need is a flag, a hole, some clubs and a little white ball. Nice....

    Thanks for the comments, I've managed to cut mowing time in half, it used to take 2 hours with 42" cutting, now can do in only 1 hour with this 60" mower, I know the math don't add up but its true,
    Trust me when I say this lawn is already a mini golf coarse it has all 18+holes , Rabbit and gopher holes that is, and when our 4-dachshund sniff them critters out, the holes become moon craters and that's when my tractor and FEL come in handy front and back lawn totals 2 acres, out of the 6 that we have, the 4 acres wooded part I leave for nature,

    All I can say is you have some awesome scrap places where you live! That mower looks factory! You did a fabulous job adding the extra mounts and wheels. I just used a Woods finish mower the other day and it looked nearly identical.
