Had it out twice now . Super really liked the set up . It only took and extra 40 minutes to do both jobs Verses 2.5 for approaches and 1.5 for aprons . Our aprons are only one pgm pass double cut around the green . The old Greens Kink didn't even know it was there . I'm thinking of attaching a different tow bar of both side of rear wheel supports this winter . So total would be 2.5 and 40 minutes .

Our student will be going back to school soon (next 4-5 days )I'll be helping out with some of the mowing till the grass starts to slow down . Next 3 to 4 weeks I'll be just trying to keep up with adjustments and greasing as I can . we will most likely be triplexing greens once the students are done and I'll try to start some winter maintenance on the greens walkers ( PGM's ).
