i cant tell by the pic, but im assuming hes towing around a 21 inch. how much does it cost to insure a huffy?

The image is fuzzy cause I took it in my car (that's why I reduced the size). It is the same set up as the other dude. He lives in my neighborhood and I will ask him if I can take a pic of his set up.

I can't tell either... Is he towing a mower behind a bike?

If he was any good he would have a blower on his back and the weedeater tied to the handlebars...

I believe this to be the start of a new cult/franchise. Low start-up costs. "We mow any size lawn-$7.95" :dizzy:

I have to take another pic. Nice set up. hand blower, crafstmen mower, and curved shaft weedeater all in a small trailer.

Man this guy travels a long way. I swear I saw him here in Memphis earlier this year.

Must be a franchise set up! No-name LCO.

I'm the one that took the orginal picture way back when:) Going to have to dig it up again.

You know what? I was a mowin' today in my yard and I found 3 cars!:confused:

OK OK. I admit it. I was following my employee to make sure he was on the route on time.

Your lucky! Our scrubs have no name but have zero turns or WB and there are like a thousand of them. How many bags of fert can that guy haul? We're going Fert.:cool:

1grnlwn-What makes the other guys with Zero-turns and walkbehinds scrubs? Because they dont have their name plastered on their trucks and trailers? Just sounds like others in your area competing with you. Looks like they have built up a nice number of customers and have purchased equipment to get the job done. What seperates you from the "so called scrubs with ZTR's?" Do you feel threatened by the competition? Do they look at you and call you a scrub?

You got a point! What makes that guy a scrub. Surely we are not threatened by him. You know the best lawns in the fanciest neighborhoods are cut with push mowers. No stripes no wheel marks just smooth green. He may be a lawn site member. So go ahead and attack me he is probably out there still mowing away doing a good job for his customers and making (profit). Didn't we all start out as scrubs, I did. So I guess the answer to your question is a "year or so." Probably. Don't care what people call me if they are not potential customers. Have a nice day.:cool:

Here I,ve seen guys pushing lawnmowers down the road almost looks as if they go door to door,what can I say that,s they thing . :rolleyes:

A couple of my friends have their own lawn mowing business, and I saw one of them hauling a 22" Craftsman in a wagon hitched to their bike somehow. :p It didn't look like it was secured very well either.

I wonder if he puts snow tires on the bike and hauls around a snow blower too?:D
