    Bahia Grass in the Southern US Comparison

    I see numerous posts of people asking about mowers, cut quality ect. One conclusion I have come up with is area a person lives and grass being cut as one reason I see so many different conclusions on what is better.

    58 Volt PAS Weed eater

    I have a 58 volt Weedeater that will accept the PAS tools. Last week I used an edger on it for a while. I am amazed every time I use this thing at what it will do.

    Echo 58 volt chain saw

    I bought a 58 volt chainsaw a few days ago. It came with the 4 OA battery. I was shocked and amazed at how it cut. That is incredible. I could not see where a homeowner or even a commercial guy would want a gas chainsaw over one of these. I have other 58 volt Echo equipment with this battery...

    Tiger Cat II deck adjustment

    We were not gettin the performance we needed on our latest Tiger Cat II. We placed it on a cement slab and checked the deck. It was high in the front. We dropped it till the deck was 1/4" lower in the front. That was a game changer on tall grass. 1/4" lower on the front with the inside front...
