Hi I am a teenage lawn cutter. I started mowing lawns when i was eight. now i am 14 and am very successful:) Ever since I was four years old I have wanted to mow lawns. My mom told me that once I turned eight i colud mow lawns. I started off with my neighbors and my parents lawns useing a 21 inch old honda and a old black and decker weed wacker. Last season I had 13 accounts and hope for more for this upcoming season.

I am doing good, actauly we got some snow yesterday. But I have a cold so I did not get to clear any ones snow except for the stuff on my driveway:cry:. And yes I am very excited that the season is approaching. I have cleaned and started most of my equipment all ready. After a few weeks in to the season when I start to make my money again a will but a new walk behind too.

Well here is a almost end of season update.
My echos were stolen so I now run kaw ,redmax, and sthil
My 21 toro self propelled was leeking oil and having other issues so it is out of service:cry: and was replaced with a commercial 2 cycle lawn boy that my neighbor sold to me for $20 and a old toro resi 21 that I got for $15. I got a 48 exmark metro hp for 1200 in april as most of you know. I just got a trailer this past weekend and plan on getting a bigger bp blower soon. other then that I want to save up for next year( want a new 32 and possibaly a truck). I also kinda changed my company's name it is now MowTown Lawn Services instead:laugh: I have been getting more and more work lately, picked up a lot of part time accounts over the summer. I also may have surgery this winter( if I don't I will get a good snow blower and try to get some snow work, I currently am using a old pos snapper and a half decent MTD)

that's stupid that someone stole your trimmers. Of all the things to steal. Have any big yards, or are they all small?

all my yards are pretty small The one that my stuff got stolen from was 1.17 acres, and I got fired 2 weeks later:dizzy: my biggest right now is half of an acre btw I was mowing when my trimmer,edger and blower was stolen. I do prefer my new hand helds a lot though

don't do a single stage. You want a dual stage. Single stages plug up when there is slush

I know that but I want to get a truck with a plow in nest year. So I want a light weight snow blower to use on sidewalks, I may just get a single and dule, I have 6 single stages that suck to use so If I could trade for a 2 stage then buy a single stage as well.

I parted my yard man, and 2 toro s200 snow blowers ( an objest to clear snow on residential property) hope that helps lol
I also parted 2 pos crapsman 21s both would not start and are not worth my time
And I threw away a crapsman trimmer compleatly worthless to me
