Some of you may remember that I am a Realtor that works for an attorney listing homes to recoup money owed by estates to the Dept. of Community Health. Anyway, I not only list the property I secure the property and make it safe. I went to a property yesterday and ended up having to mow an acre of three foot high weeds/grass. I have a couple of before shots and one after shot of the front. Mower did good it bogged down several times (big surprise) and stalled only once but I was going too fast. It was fun but messy.

Good Job. Cleaned up nice. Looks like you used your 14 bushel bagger as well.

Looks good, did it bog down on that big bald brown spot?

I have a small mound on my back lot and I try to remember were it is and cringe when I mow over it scalping the top off.

Sure can't do my newly sharpen blades any good.

I didn't use the bagger. I would have had to dump it 400 times :biglaugh: The back yard was much thicker than the front yard. I had no trouble at all on the brown hump in the front yard. I didn't know I even ran over it until dust started shooting out. I think the deck wheels took care of it.

The problem with these yards is you don't know you are running over something until you hit it. I have hit metal, stumps, bricks, plastic. I don't walk the yard first because of chiggers, poison ivy, and most of all SNAKES. I just got new blades and realized I should have kept my old ones for these yards but didn't.
