About 12 of my 14 customers told me that there lawn man randomly stopped showing up. Each one of them has turned out to be an awesome customer so I know it wasnt them. I have also noticed multiple used WB's for sale locally on craigslist. Normally you cant find a running crapsman on there let alone a commercial unit. Mabey these guys are starting to leave this industry for good.
