I may set up a Mow-In event here if it doesn't stop raining! We have gotten close to 3.5" of rain in the last week and it won't dry enough between rains to mow! We have 5+ acres (maybe close to 10) that is going to need a haircut once this dries out. Got rain in the forecast through the weekend! If I don't get it done next Monday, it'll be another week before I have a shot at it.

You all can't catch a break.  You may end up having to get a bush hog before it is all over with! :smilewink:

I can set the big Toro to mow high if I have to, Bill. Just need the grass to dry enough to keep from clogging the decks.

Sounds like you need something like this:

Duals for flotation and a Sickle-Mo for the tall grass  :D :D :D

That might not be a good idea with the way they get all of those mudslides.

 

With as much rain as I generally bring, the whole state could slide into the sea.

 

 

HHHMMmmmmm.......on second thought, that may not be a bad idea :bigrofl:

I got the Toro 322D out and mowed a little around Aarons out back. Got it stuck and had to have him pull me out. His birthday was this week and they are having folks over this weekend, so I wanted it to look decent for that. May do my front yard if the rain holds off tomorrow morning.

We were supposed to have a good chance at rain today but all we got so far is a window spotter. We're going into our summer time pattern early with chance of rain in the heat of the day.

I got excited. I was ready to throw my CC125 with a Sickle-Mo on the trailer and head on down. I only get to use it once or twice a year, so any excuse to get more seat time.

I got enough dry time to top the weeds. With rain in the forecast for another week, it may get high again!

I am going to have to cut mine in stages. I use a zt mower with a full mulch kit on it where the blades are completely surrounded with steel. It would take a couple of hours to remove it and replace the grass chute and then a couple of hours to reinstall it. This every night rain storm is getting real old, or at least it is until July and August gets here when it is really needed.

Mine is getting high again! Your's could be a pump if it had a hole in it somewhere! LOL! I'm still thinking seriously of starting on an ARK! At least I could save the tractors!
