:laugh::laugh::laugh: Ok, so those last two equipment pictures are just plain nuts. That's quite an assortment of tools that you have there; if they do the job for you, way to go.

Did you fix up all of those 21''ers in that picture? That's quite a job.
BTW, sweet truck. :weightlifter:

I take that back, Deere with the swivel wheels was my dad's and the LawnBoy was given to me by a neighbor I mow for. The Lawn Boy was NEVER used, still had all the paint underneath, only thing wrong was they put straight engine oil in it (takes gas-oil mix).

You complain about having all this Debt all the time.

I bet this kid has none. Everyone has to start somewhere. In my opinion, he's doing it right. Thats almost how I started. Only I had one 21".

Yea, but what is the point in one guy having THAT many 21"s? I mean at the most one guy can use 2 21"s at the same time, so any more then that just seems pointless.

I wanted to get another pic before winter with the trailer I just bought (at $100, I almost stole it), but someone hit my truck at Home Depot and drove off so now it looks like crap.

The point is, when I go to sell them, I can get at least $30-50 each, and with 15 of them, you do the math...:hammerhead: Plus I can say I have 15 lawnmowers.

Congrats to you man....glad to see someone is out there starting from the ground up and working there way to success. Not only are you making some extra money selling your mowers you are finding in the trash, you are learning valuable engine and maitenance work. Congrats to you for being self-motivated. One day you will have a large business and alot of people working for you whether you are into landscaping or something else.

I'll still be in landscaping, I just got accepted at EKU where I plan to major in turfgrass management. The only reason I bring this up is to say that that is the only reason I haven't bought a Z, I would have bought, one but my dad forbids it, go figure.

How can you have debt at my age? Is there a bank that will give you a loan?

If you got accepted to college, then yes you are old enough to get a loan. Maybe not every bank but if you can prove income or know somone...I got my first dirtbike loan at 16, 2nd bike at 17, truck at 19.

A lot of people started out about like you, they work hard with what they have or what little they have and grow, they end up making a lot of money. Hopefully your post highschool plans include continuing your education. It seems the competition in the green industry get getting worse.

A bigger measure of your success will be the quality of work you do, your ability to keep your customers happy and how you run your business. Equipment while being important is not the sum of the whole deal.

I do plan on continuing my education, that's why I have the equipment I have. I have been accepted to EKU and OSU ATI and am planning to major in horticulture (turfgrass management to be specific).

I don't know what it is but they are wicked hilarios!

Do you actually drive with that snow blower sign in the truck? Whats that thing off to the side in the last pic with lettering on it?

One more thing i don't really understand your signatures that you keep changing but they always have me wondering:confused:


BTW thats truck is really nice, looks similar to mine but is red and looks like a 2x4 instead of 4x4 but is way cleaner.

It's kids like that who go on to do great things. At least he is not parading around some tractor his father purchased claiming it was his. Then didn't know how to approach his dad about starting up shop.

He seems to know what he wants to do seems to have a plan to achieve his goals.

Hey, that's real good to see you working from the ground up with minimal help from your parents. Just don't work too much, chances are you'll like working too much and school will get lower on the priority list. Like me, I love working so much, I have to force myself to do schoolwork because that's what's really important.

Good luck.
