I'm glad I keep my camera with me. I can snap spy photo's of the competition and learn what they are up to. So far I'm the only one with a trimmer and blower so I think I'm safe for the time being.

I'm already training my grandson to try to stay ahead of them. It's looking very promising.

Not teachin' him quite good enough.... no ear protection, no eye protection???? What if he gets soapy bubbles in his eyes.... then he'll be sittin' on the side of the truck, lookin' in the side mirror for an hour trying to get it out like my helpers do.....

Was that a Wally-World he was parked in front of?

Might have been a dealer picking up junkers for repair.

I think at least if you're poor and broke you might can still see the light, isn't that something, when you can see what money does to folks...? We are, no matter what anyone says or does, no better than anyone else on this earth.

....
That truck looks to be an F-350 full ton, since it's probably paid for it is quite possible the man lasts the season.
As for myself, I am more worried about the working man pushing me out than the guy with all the bling bling.
At the same rate I wish him all the best of luck, nice outfit especially if it's a starter.

Peace

*Ahem*

Badging it an F-350, suggests that it's a Ford, which it clearly isn't (1973 -1987 Chevy/GM body style).

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programing. . .

Hey when i ditched my business and moved then moved back i started back up with much better then that. I had a 81 chevy that was sittin around the house and a flat bed 16ft trailer. I did have my old toro commercial z though. Upgraded to a 93 f 150 great condition now i upgraded a yr ago with a new dodge 1500 crew cab. Now i run the dodge, new grasshopper z and 3 new push mowers. About 10k a month worth of business and thats after i ditched alot of what i had last yr because i was thinking about selling out.

Oopsies!

Hindsight being 20/20. . . it very well could be (I can't make out the first pic, so I just assumed [first mistake :nono:] that both pics were of the same outfit).

He was talking about the first pic,...not the second.:laugh:

Now, in my defense. . . :rolleyes:, I never know exactly what Mr. Topsites is talking about.

I probably have a thousand pictures on this site. Most of them are comparison pictures. Such as comparing the cut of the XR7 and the Ultra Cut side by side for 2 months. Then the Velocity pics for comparison to that. This is just farm country here, most of the turf isn't going to win any prizes.

A lot of my work is rough, steep and difficult. Pic it apart all you want. I'm just glad to get it done sometimes. And no I can't get a good strait line on this bank though I've tried.

That's what I was thinking. Some will agree and others will not depending on what your niche is but to me, image is the start of representing my company. That rig will not pass muster in some of the upscale communities that I service in the Greater Orlando area.

Oh...... Tacoma, I knew that you would end up taking a snap shot of someone on this site and pissing them off. The thing is-no one wants to admit who it is in the Ford or Chevy:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

I had a plastic mower and used to follow my dad around the yard. It didn't run on bubbles though.

This guy may look innocent but as soon as he gets a deck I will have to be on my toes to keep him from getting some of my accounts. How can I compete with white letter tires? You guys just don't know how great it is living here. He usually has a big rebel flag flying from the rear but he is being stealth today..........

Hey, better watch out for that "death row" mower. That thing could probably run circles around everybody's mower. My friend and I were building an old Murray. Ours would go well over 40mph. I hit 43 on it in 4th gear, out of 5 gears. Okay, so it won't mow grass worth anything, but that would be a slick spreader/aerator tow machine.
