Prestige produces first stripes of 2020

Started mowing on Sunday and pretty much finished it up tonight. This new-to-me 2011  Prestige with a 54" deck really lays down the stripes.

Pretty pleased so far. If only the grass looked this good all year.

The tractor works well. The seating is comfortable. Almost seems like it could use a little rear weight. It has about as many hours as my DLX but is only 1/8th as much worn out so I would say that is good. Still have some detailing I'd like to do to it and service the hydraulics.

Wow!  Looking great.  We are a ways off from mowing here.  I would like to run the EZ Rake this spring, but I like to wait for a bit of green, and have none yet.  

The Prestige is a heck of a nice mowing machine.

I have rolled and aerated my yard but I can't bring myself to mow maybe next week, it's only April 2. For 22 years I mowed a 30 acre cemetery, when I took over the clean off date for grave decorations was May 10, I had to move it to May 1, retired from there 13 years ago, so starting mowing April 2 is kinda early. I have the mower all ready to go just can't bring my self to do

@tadams, Not unusual around here to mow in late March to early April. There are some farmers on very sandy soil in the bottoms who like to plant corn in late March. They didn't get to this year. Its risky as far as frost goes but its kind of a competition among them. This was our weather the previous weekend.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
