Talking New Exmark TT 52"

So, since I gave up facebook for lent. I spent my time on craigslist looking at mowers. After many different people wanting to to sell me their used one, I settled on a 52" Exmark Turf Tracer. Got it with the Exmark Stand-On for 3000. 20HP Kohler Engine. This guy took real good care of it, when I asked how soon I could have it he said he didn't grease it this week to he would want to do that. (he currently cuts 2 lawns) I wish this rain would just go away so I can use the thing. Ill need some practice with the ECS Controls. This guy even said he would come back next weekend to show me all the maintenance this requires and some operating tips.

Anyone else have experience with the Turf Tracers?

I'll try to post a picture...

Thumbs up awesome

I love it! I can mow a lawn in 25 mins now! since I don't have a truck/trailer, I use to have to tie my trimmer and blower on to my 33" deck. Now, I bungee cord them on to the handles used to adjust the deck height. With speeds up to 6.5mph, I cruise down the street to each job (I get a lot of looks)

The only two things I don't like are weight and my sulky

WEIGHT

with how heavy this thing is, it gets stuck really easily especially when it has rained the past 6 days..

I was mowing a clients lawn on Monday afternoon. Little did I know, there was a mud/sinkhole in the back corner of his yard! My mower wheels were halfway under mud when he decided to call up his neighbor who was a lot more help than the client was. (the guy meant well but...) His neighbor and him pulled on the front casters while I put it in 6th gear and drove it out. Alleluia!

Check out the pic: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...6040481&type=1

My Sulky

The mower cam with Exmark's Stand On Sulky. Sure it will probably last forever but since it only has one wheel, it leaves a squiggly stripe down the center which is highly unattractive. It looks ok when my sulky is pined up however it is so much easier to ride behind it .

Does anyone know of a nice sulky that is compatible with the Turf Tracers?

to this:http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...00001426040481

Striping kits for my mower run about 275 at my local dealer....think its worth it?

Try making the image size a little smaller and re-upload it.
