Possibly in the market for a new stander. Using Exmark Vantage X with the ECS. I’m getting really bad tendinitis (tennis elbow) from being on the machine.

I’ve heard rumors about an Aerocore2 deck and would like to see the OilGuard system on the ZK.

Speaking of the ZK. I asked the dealer what he thought of the 72” and he said the feedback he’s getting from guys that purchased them is it doesn’t discharge clippings as well as the 61”. Said maybe the deck is too big and by the time it exits…

MCKINNEY, Texas – Robin Autopilot has announced the launch of its Fleet Console platform, a multi-manufacturer fleet management system that enables landscapers to review the status of their robotic mower fleets, send fleet commands, track maintenance and more.

Fleet Console is the latest innovation in Robin’s expanding offering of products and technology for the growing robotic mowing industry. The new fleet management platform’s modular design allows it to integrate with multiple makes and models of service robots, along with various field service software and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.

Initially, the platform will be available with the following integrations:

  • Aviator, Robin’s in-house field service and CRM software
  • Husqvarna cloud-connected robotic lawn mowers
  • Third-party authentication using Google login
  • Google Maps for visualization and routing

    In addition, Fleet Console will offer the following key features at launch:

  • Dashboard of robot status
  • Notification history for every robot
  • Maintenance tracking of wear items
  • Efficient crew routing to all robots that need service

“We are excited to offer Fleet Console to our subscribers, and we plan to expand the integrations and features available on the platform in the near future,” said Chief Executive Officer Hiten Sonpal. “For the launch, we chose to integrate with Husqvarna first because of the high quality of their mowers and their industry expertise as the leading manufacturer in the market. Before the start of next season, we will publish our own programming interface to support the integration of the next generation of commercial autonomous lawn mowers from manufacturers like Graze, Greenzie, and Scythe. In the near term, we also intend to roll out integrations to other field services software and CRM systems like Salesforce, Quickbooks, Aspire, LMN, Service Autopilot, Lawn Buddy and others.”

Robin’s Fleet Console is available immediately for all new and existing Robin subscribers. Existing subscribers can just select “Fleet” in their Aviator menu.

Just added a sound system to my 2020 Tundra from “TacoTunes” out of Texas (I think). I paid. They shipped everything. And it was as simple as can be to put in! They have dozens of videos of the step by step procedures for each aspect of the installation. They only do Toyota vehicles as far as I know. If it kinks out on me I’ll come back and speak on it. But so far, bang for your buck, this was a pretty kick a$$ deal. Sounds amazing!!

Have you had employees not want to work due to Covid19? I had 2 basically quit when the Governors order was put in place.

One had a new baby and didn’t want to be out working at all. Which is fine, I understand and told him to contact me when he feels comfortable.

The second one is totally convinced landscapers are not allowed to work. I suspect he is just looking for a free ride. I talked to him Monday and told him we are working and so is every other lawn service in the county.

Got the chance to demo the new SFC 30 today. Here is my brief review.

Cut quality is great – exactly what I would expect from a scag.

Drive system – forward is strong. Seemed like it takes a little push to get it going up a hill but once its moving it will pull itself right up the hill no problem. the only con is it does not have reverse (it is quite heavy to pull back)

front wheels – would be soooo much better if they had swivel casters on the front. I did contact scag through social…

Bayer to remove glyphosate from products

Bayer announced yesterday that the company will replace glyphosate with alternative active ingredients starting in 2023.

In the statement below, Werner Baumann, CEO of Bayer AG, said: “As part of the five-point plan, the company will also take additional steps to help close the door on this litigation and ensure that any claims brought by individuals who use Roundup in the future are few in number and unlikely to succeed,” he said.

“These measures include that the company and its partners will replace its glyphosate-based products in the U.S. residential Lawn & Garden market with new formulations that rely on alternative active ingredients beginning in 2023, subject to a timely review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state counterparts.”

You can read the full statement below:

Bayer today provided an update on its five-point plan to address future Roundup litigation risk after its May 27th decision to withdraw from the national class process. The company is now in more control of important aspects of the risk mitigation process and has sketched out two basic scenarios going forward to provide a path to closure of this litigation. The first scenario is based on obtaining a favorable decision by the United States Supreme Court on a cross-cutting issue like federal preemption which would effectively and largely end the U.S. Roundup™ litigation. The second scenario assumes that the Supreme Court either declines to hear the Hardeman case or issues a ruling in favor of plaintiff – in that case the company would activate its own claims administration program.

The company sees good chances for the first scenario and believes there are strong arguments for the U.S. Supreme Court to accept the case and ultimately render a supporting verdict. However, Bayer is also prepared for the second scenario to manage anticipated claims, through settlement and litigation, to ultimately bring an end to this litigation. For this second scenario, the company posts an additional provision of a gross amount of 4.5 billion U.S. dollars (3.8 billion euros), i.e. before tax and discounting in the second quarter 2021, reflecting the company’s potential long-term exposure.

“We want to provide comfort to our investors that the glyphosate litigation exposure should now be reasonably accounted for and leaves significant upside in the event of a favorable Supreme Court decision on the case. It is important for the company, our owners, and our customers that we move on and put the uncertainty and ambiguity related to the glyphosate litigation behind us. This clarity should also allow informed investors to direct their focus on operational performance, the quality of Bayer’s businesses and its intrinsic value”, said CEO Werner Baumann during an investor call. As announced in May, Bayer expects the cash flow to improve this year compared to the original assumptions and confirms its mid-term projection provided during Capital Markets Day.

The company will file its petition seeking Supreme Court review of the Hardeman case in August. If the Supreme Court grants review, the Court will likely render a final decision in 2022. Given this impending schedule, Bayer will be very selective in its settlement approach in the coming months and will not entertain any further settlement discussions when and if the Supreme Court grants review.

In case of a negative Supreme Court outcome, Bayer would set up a professionally run claims’ administration program that will come with pre-determined compensation values whose amounts will be similar to the values for current inventory settlements, but net of plaintiffs’ lawyers commission. The program would address eligible individuals directly, who used Roundup™ previously and develop NHL over the next 15 years. This would cover any alleged NHL latency period, although regulators consistently conclude that the large body of science does not support a causal relationship between NHL and glyphosate and despite substantially different scientific opinions on the latency.

As part of the five-point plan, the company will also take additional steps to help close the door on this litigation and ensure that any claims brought by individuals who use Roundup in the future are few in number and unlikely to succeed. These measures include that the company and its partners will replace its glyphosate-based products in the U.S. residential Lawn & Garden market with new formulations that rely on alternative active ingredients beginning in 2023, subject to a timely review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state counterparts. This move is being made exclusively to manage litigation risk and not because of any safety concerns. As the vast majority of claims in the litigation come from Lawn & Garden market users, this action largely eliminates the primary source of future claims beyond an assumed latency period. There will be no change in the availability of the company’s glyphosate formulations in the U.S. professional and agricultural markets.

Moreover, the company will engage in discussions with EPA about Roundup labels with the goal of providing more information to users about the science as an additional element towards ensuring even more informed purchasing and application decisions. It will also set up a new website with scientific studies relevant to Roundup’s safety that will provide even more transparency to purchasers about the products they use. The website is expected to be launched by the end of 2021.

“We have set up a very strong team that reports directly to the Board of Management and is laser focused on the further execution of our five-point plan, while the Board of Management will now fully concentrate on business performance and strategy execution”, said Baumann.

Hello. My wife and I are in the process of purchasing 22 acres of land in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana. It is all cleared. We are planning to get it bush hogged and we would like to maintain it regularly with a zero turn, not allowing it to get to bush hogging height. The local John Deere dealer recommended a Z915E Ztrak with a 54 inch deck. The Kubota dealer recommended a ZD1211 with a 72 inch deck. These are two different beasts and the Kubota would be $100 a month more with an extra…

First post here, sorry if I do go about it poorly! I was just curious how often (and by how much?) you guys increase prices for your jobs? I personally have seen exponential growth for my business this year so far (2nd year with 2 60”s and 2 employees already) and my profit margins are not where they should be to be completely honest! Add that to inflation and everything else it’s honestly hard to keep cash on hand just starting out! I have already decided to increase prices for next season…

Makita launches Connector Series blower

LA MIRADA, Calif. – Makita U.S.A., Inc., has released the 36V Brushless Blower (CBU01Z), a part of the Connector Series of outdoor power equipment.

The 36V Brushless Blower provides improved balance and reduced weight. By relocating the battery connections to an external source, the blower weighs less for operator comfort.

The Makita-built brushless motor delivers up to 622 CFM and 157 MPH to move heavy debris. The blower delivers up to 80% more blowing force than a gas blower (when compared to Makita  model BHX2500CA). The cruise control lever with variable speed trigger adjusts between 0 and 530 CFM, allowing the operator to manage power and run time. A speed lock provides continuous operation.

The 3-stage telescoping nozzle features a downward end point to provide more powerful air flow and reduce operator arm fatigue.

The blower features the exclusive Extreme Protection Technology (XPT). XPT is a protective seal inside the tool and is engineered for improved operation in harsh conditions by channeling water and dust from key internal components. It also is IPX4 weather-resistant construction for durability and long life.

The Connector Series is a line of outdoor power equipment that utilizes an external battery connection, moving batteries from the unit to a battery backpack (sold separately). A cable connects the unit to the battery backpack. This shift in battery weight from the unit to the backpack  provides improved balance and longer run time. Paired with the LXT and LXT X2 Portable Backpack Power Supply (PDC01, sold separately), the operator will gain twice the run time for any LXT X2 Product.

Saw this post originally on www.needhammalandscaper.com and it provoked some thoughts.

Originally I had said time. Which I believe would be the majority of the answers. But there were other factors like google reviews and word of mouth.

I’m curious how long it took you to develop credibility in your area, and some tips for those who may need them.
