    If mine gets much longer, I may have to brush hog the lawn. I'm hoping to mow tomorrow but there are some areas that are still too wet.

    Jim, how does that Parker sweeper work for you? I've been hoping to find a used one but they just don't pop up for sale (at least around here). I know Parker has been around a long time and I'm not impressed with the more "affordable" lawn sweepers.

    BigJim, my front acre + around the house I have only mowed with my little 185 this year. It's not so much wet as it is soft. My back yard, 2.5+ acres, I mowed tonight with the 1026R for the second time this season. It was definitely wet in the areas it always is. I didn't need MFWD though. But the MMM got a good rinse with the hose afterwards to clean off all the muddy water tire spray. I need 1 series fenders!!! Oh and BTW, it has been wet and/or too long so far this season that I haven't yet mowed at my normal cut height, I'm still cutting it high.


    For what it's worth, your lawn looks pretty darn dry! Looks good

    that parker sweeper is almost 10 yrs old-i bought it in 08 at a dealer that sold wheel horse and bobcat's, then switched to Kubota

    but it gets used hard-i have had it to many other yards over the yrs to sweep their grass, when we had a wet spring like this yr.

    i believe i paid almost $500 for it back then. wife almost had a heart attack that day. i took all my overtime back then, from several weekends i had worked for it. so i told her we wasn't missing anything from my normal paycheck. i worked for the coal company back then, and if they wanted a block of coal-my hrs was unlimited to what i could work-or stay awake. i was only 10 miles from home-dozer could only run on 10hrs till it needed fuel again-so i would fuel twice-then come home get a shower and sleep for a spell-then go back at it-till day shift came in on monday morning. i worked all night shift back then-except the weekend's.
    the parker is still going strong-yet. i'dl buy another in a heart beat again.
