I finally get a nice day to go out and clean all my stuff and get a snap shot of what I have.

My name is Nathan, I am 20 years old, and I am a full time student at Navarro College in Waxahachie TX. I have been mowing for about 2 years as a crew like this, I used to do baseball and soccer fields when I was younger but because they finally went broke I had nothing after that. I used to work at a ahrdware store for 2 years, but because time and money were an issue there, I finally had to go and do something I would like to persue into.

Most of the equipment here I have head since I started. I have done a lot of uprgrading on things when I found a good deal either on craigslist or ebay. I love what I do, it sure beats sitting in an office in a small cramped cubicle all day 8-5, at least I can get a tan, enjoy the whether, and get to listen to the radio, and all of this comes with a price.... Not having to be bothered by anyone and not having someone always on your but.

The thing I tell people is that having your own business is not so easy sometimes. You are responsible for your own actions, and also takes a lot of self discipline, even when the worst things come.

So enjoy, and questions or suggestions please feel free to ask or say.

Hey Nathan
How are things going? I wanted to say that I envy the equipment you have and I got to say that if there is any color a truck for a lawn service should be. It is your truck, It screams come work on my lawn. Nice set-up. Hope you have a great season, and look forward to talking to you in the future.

Thanks for the compliment on the green, for some reason I get a lot of people that like the green. I'm not quite done with the trailer, I'm in the process of making a cage for the front. When the trailer is done, it will be painted green with the Rust oleum hunter green. So, I hope to get it done soon. I have been busy surprisingly, but I hope to get more accounts this year. Thanks

Hey Nathan. I see you do like the 250's! They are powerhouses. Funny you mention the Rustoleum Hunter green paint. The 2 trailers I've had built, I've used that paint. It's good stuff, and a great thing about it is that it's readily available in a spray can, which is great for touch ups, or if you add on racks later etc. Check out the pic of my 18 footer for the Rustoleum. I had the trimmer rack and blower rack added after the trailer was made, so after they were fabricated they were welded on, spray primed, and sprayed with the Rustoleum. Done. I also used the paint (by the gallon-rolled on) when I added the wood sides. Hell, come to think of it, I even used it to paint the Billy Goat to math the trailer. You've got a great set up, and I wish you the best this season. It seems like your crew is happy, and ready to mow!

Thanks, Ya I like that hunter green, thanks for showing me what it looks like, It will match the truck perfectly. I can say that the only crew that will be happy is me, myself, and I. I run solo, and I am glad that I do. Thanks for the comments.

Bought me a gallon of that Hunter green by Rustoleum at HD, only 29 bucks, I son't think that was too bad, I'll have to get a picture after everything is painted. I have to work on the fenders because of dents and a big bulge due to a blow out one day.

I'm going to make a cage for the front, on the side of it will holders for rakes, shovels, ect. On the sides, I'm going to make some gas can rakes form left over angle. Less room to take up from the cage.

It's actually a big tex trailer, is a heavy duty, and it is heavy, I think it weighs almost 1800 pounds it self. The ramp is heavy too, I can take it off when I need to and pull out the ramp from the sides. Thanks

LOL, whenever I can find a exmark ztr 48 for under 1500 bucks.

The problem is I don't know if I will be able to get rid of it, it has made a ton of money, and has gotten it's money's worth, overall it has good. There are a bunch of design flaws on it though, I could go on and on about that, but at 3000 new and I was jsut getting into the biz so, I started out on a good foot.

I had one, a 36 exmark, only main problem was it was a fixed deck with the spacers on the casters and bolts on the rear wheels. Morningside, the guy I sold it to, had a 32 non fixed deck, I should have bought it when he came to pick the mower up. And really, I didn't make enough money to justfiy keeping it because you could only do one heighth without bringing ur tools. out.

I am also planning my front box for my small trailer. I have a 43" x 7-1/2' trailer. I know it's small (so are most of my yards) but it currently holds what I run with and is easy to put in tight places. I have 21" Toros for my regular mowing and when I do clean-up, I have my Billy Goat vacuum and 21" Snappers I will try to get some pictures some day but life is so busy (work full time with a grocery chain plus twenty yards) it may have to wait a while. On my box I want to have a place for everything I can Imagine. Since I'm handy fabricating with metal it should be real handy. Talk to you later, David

I have a 10 by 5 foot trailer, dove tail, 4 foot ramp, and it also has a cage on the front. It was custom made because it did not come with it when I got the trailer. I can't weld worth a darn, but I can do everything else. So I had it down by a friend of mine. Mine is 5 foot wide, 2 foot tall, by 30 inches deep, it has a lot of space, but because nothing I put in there is 2 foot tall, a lot of space is left unused, so I have to find another idea.

Well, I can weld, but it is hard for me to get it to penetrate into both metals. I get really fustrated when weld breaks.

I can tell you that steel is still high right now also.

I like your trailer. I think if I posted pictures of my set-up it might draw a lot of laughs. But I will when it's done anyway. One thing is for sure it makes me a good amount of extra income.

I have only used it at one job. I actually go there when I get time and cut down small trees near a creek, already have a third of it payed off. I just can't see myself paying 500 for a small chainsaw when I can get a huge one for that price. That saw I have is great, I really like it, the easy start is a dream. I really did not want that option, but they come with them now. You got pics of all your stuff?

Ain't that the truth. I had this small trailer, but I could not fit my big z on it, because the trailer was not wide enough. I had this red trailer, it is/was a car hauling trailer. I was wanting to get another trailer, but after considering the price of a new one I needed 1300 bucks, I decided to do a trasformation.

The thing is for the next 2-3 years this equipment I have will be sufficient. I have all the work I can handle and the furthest home I have is three homes on the same street one mile from my house. When I retire from my full time job that will be the time to go after a larger trailer and the equipment to go with it. But for now life is good. David

Does your pole saw have an adjustable angle for the cutting head? I have a Stihl pole saw but all it does is extend. I haven't seen one with that feature before. I could see it being very useful.

It is actually an attachment that goes between the saw gearbox and pole. 35 degree angle it has. Huge difference. You don't have to push the saw against the limb while cutting, because of the angle you can just set the saw on top of the branch and cut, less force of the person actually pushing against the pole. Expensive, but well worth for the amount I have used it.

arent you afraid some one is going to steal all that equipment being a 1 man crew. i would just bring enough equipment for my self, why do you need all those weed wackers, blowers,chain saws, and bush trimmers being a 1 man crew.

03-11-2009, 10:30 PM
i only have enough equipment for me and my twin, and maybe a extra worker here and there. you could send some of your equipment my way. lol. bring only what you need. here left is bad. near chicago il, only the south suburbs.

I see what your saying. It just got to be so much of a hassle loading unloading loading unloading everything all the time. I keep everything locked up. I know that locks are just to keep the honest people honest. But I have not had any problems knock on wood. One of the reasons I bring all that stuff is I have had lots of times had to do extra work, a few limbs needed to be taken down hedges needed done, so forth, and I have at times did not have the equipment with me, so 10 to 15 miles back to the barn became unecessary. It got to be a pain. So, everything is with me at all times locked up and ready to be used.

I park where I can always see the truck and trailer. If I am in the back yard, ever few minutes or so I will peak over the fence. I have gotten down that the neighborhoods except one are good.

03-11-2009, 10:43 PM
i would only bring what you need for a 1 man crew. you have enough equipment on your trailer for a 3 man crew or more.there are a lot of thief's who would love to see a 1 man crew with all that equipment while your in a back yard cutting or what not. here near Chicago il, people would have a field day with all that equipment. you almost have to have a 2 man crew here in Chicago il. i live in the south suburbs so its not as bad, but i have had stuff stolen while out cutting. you could send some of your extra equipment my way.lol.

meyere60
03-11-2009, 10:48 PM
i don't know why that popped up twice. i meant to delete it then rewrite it. sorry. but ya that makes sense i would leave some of the weed whackers though you only need 1 weed whacker, 1 bush trimmer, etc. good to talk to you. nice equipment.

4.3mudder
03-11-2009, 10:51 PM
Well, technically I am a 3 man crew: God, my guardian angel, and me. So.... LOL

I might have to do that.

The only thing I have extra is that top trimmer.

I use both ztrs on diff yards, and also the push mower on the small ones.

Tree trimming stuff I can probably leave off

That is what I'm hearing from the farmer's almanac. Awww, this is going to suck big times. We have had a good rain today, almost 2 1/2 inches so far, it is supposed to rain the rest of the week. And I had jobs planned that will have to wait a few days :cry:. Up until today, we only had half an inch of rain so far this year ;). hard to believe.

Ya snow in Texas?;) I have never heard of such a thing as snow, what is it?:rolleyes: LOL, we didn't get anything like that this year.

Of course if you can't legally carry yet, then you can always get a license to have an assualt rifle. :laugh:

Sorry to hear that. Hear in Georgia, they pass laws in order for you to carry your gun more places.:laugh: I can take it anywhere except state and federal buildings, federal parks, bars (not including restaurants w/ bars), inside schools, and public gatherings (i.e. concerts, rallies). So pretty much anywhere I need to. And as long as you have a permit and are abiding by the law, the police do not give you any problems.

The main reason I have it is for two places I do in downtown Atlanta. I usually pick up a trash bag full of broken liquor bottles and beer bottles. Cars speed down the road at around 70 (only a 35mph zone). You can watch drug deals going down, and the last time I was out there I saw line of cars trying to pickup a girl, asking "how much?" :dizzy: So yeah, I feel better when we can all protect ourselves.

Jeez, well, I have not seen that before, yet. But I have mowed a property where they have a mobile building parked on the property. It is like 28 acres, well the homeless people like to sleep on the porch. LOL I woke them up one early morning round 6.

Jobs will have to wait till next week. Customers know I don't work in the rain and they don't want me to either. Later

I don't work in the rain either. If the sidewalk is not dry I won't even consider cutting the lawn. Just leave a mess if you do. But it dry out and temp about 50 degrees. Got to power rake and fill low spots with amended soil and seed one yard. The other is just a spring clean-up. Looks good for today and tomorrow working wise.

i don't think hes spoiled , he probably worked hard, saved his money, and bought his equipment. me and my twin had our trucks, plows, and equipment since we were 18/19. i started working at 14 for a landscaping company and just saved my money to open my own, and learned everything i could while working for him. me and my x boss are still friends, and i occasionally work for him landscaping or plowing. so he could be lying, spoiled, or he just work hard for his stuff. he seems to be honest .

I started the same way you did. I did work for some baseball fields by me for a few years. Then, in junior high i had shoulder dislocation during football and was not bale to do anything for a while. I was a basketball manager, and the coach mowed yards on the side, so I helped him out on the weekends. Finally, I started on my own, and getting my own accounts. Buying my own equipment. I still help him out all the time. He also has a high shcool kid that helps him, and he also has a few yards he does on the side, and he is one hard worker. So, no I'm not spoiled and I'm glad I'm not. I don't see where you can get in life with everything being handed down to you.

how can you be 20 years old and owwn all that? I see a spoiled kid .

I wonder how you would know? When I was 13yrs. old I started working for a Gardener. During this period of time until I was 20yrs old I purchased two vehicles two band new 125cc motocross racing bikes. And many other things. I was not interested in starting my own business then. But the only thing my parents helped me with was room and board. David

That is the best thing is to save up enough money until you can financially afford it. I know people that are moving back in left and right because they cannot afford it. All I say is. "I told you not to move out" :hammerhead:

I'm skipping the whole apartment thing and get a small house.

I was lucky my parents put up with me until I met my wife. I rented a little house closer to where she lived until we got married.

That's my plan, I hope it works out that way. I mean, you lose all that money on an apartment, heck a few months can go along way on a house payment. Plus, I will have a garage for my truck, and hopefully a shop for the trailer. Or I could leave it at the parent's house in the barn out in the country where it is not prone to having any "lookers" wanting my equipment.

One set of my grandparents do not even own a credit card. I just don't like keeping payments waiting. Plus, when I hear things about people not being able to make payments, then when you just make the minimum monthly payment, you are just paying the interest! Ridiculous, Cash on everything for me. Now, my truck, I am making payments because whipping 15 grand off a money tree just isn't going to happen.

Whats nice about my home (which we own, actually the bank owns it)is I have a huge garage and a very large lot. We are allowed to build a additional shed (can also be as large as a one car garage). So I will be ok until I Go full time with the business. Can't Wait. David

I like them both. I don't use the 72 a whole lot, but the 45 I use all the time. mostly because of the longer blades.

I don't know what there deal was staring at me the whole time. I accidentally got the pole saw stuck because I started cutting the tree on the wrong side and got the bar in a bind, they were just sitting there looking whle I was trying to get it out, thankfully I had my other hand pole saw.

I have been doing a few clean-ups that I needed to do. And put a bid on some minor sod work for one of my regular accounts. It involves tearing out some small trees and about 700 sq. ft. of sod. It would be great to do but money's tight for a lot of people so he may put it off. I'm keeping very busy with my kids, I know my time will be very limited for them soon. I also grabbed a couple of fixer uppers ( 21" commercial mowers ). I have the Toro Proline ready. And I picked up a 21" exmark for $50 that I will need to invest in a couple cables and tires for, plus a little elbow grease and it should be a good mower. Still haven't taken the time to get moving on my front trailer cage. but I do have most of the materials. I have a vacation from my full time job this week and I might go ahead and start working on it? David

Man, thats what I did. I bought 2 exmark ztrs fixed them both up, sold one and kept the other. There were literally parts mower, and we somewhat stripped. I had to put a lot of money into both, but still came way ahead than buying a used one, then having to put money into it by whatever may be wrong with it. Saving money is what I like to do best.

He sold me three Prolines that they used to strip and keep their other mowers running. There was enough parts to put together the one solid mower. ( two cables and two new treads for it and my friend had the air box he donated to me. ) I also got two Shindaiwa backpack weed sprayers that need new wands. ( I'm not sure if I'll use them or not honestly I'm not licensed to do any spraying yet); a residential Snapper mower that needed a carb. ( which my buddy also helped out with ) and a little wonder hedge trimmer that needs a handle and a carb kit or just new tubes through the gas tank ( it will fire with the carb. cleaner and run until it is exhausted ) so I'm sure it will be great as soon as I get to it. I got all this for $142.00 pretty sweat huh. David

Ya 600.00-700.00 brand new.

I got a Shindy multi tool for 250.00(with the trimmer attachment) and then bought the Pole Pruner attachment for 260.00 from the dealer. My only complaint is that the pruner is to light and bounces around a little. I have used the echo and they are really nice.

4.3mudder
06-03-2009, 01:42 PM
Ya, the pole pruner attachment from stihl is 200 bucks, then the kombi head, which ranges form 190-350, then the trimmer attachment is another 100. It adds up quick, but also saves lots of room, and maintainence because you only have one engine. Wish I had more accoutns to do to keep me busy and out of trouble. lol maybe not the trouble part but keeping me busy would sure help.

Ya me too. What do you plan on doing to get more accounts?

Well, I'm not one of those who goes door to door advertising. Ya I know it helps to do that. I don't put out flyers either. Only things I have are shirts made up and signs on my truck.

Most of the accounts that I have been from word of mouth. I mean, if I was in the situation to find someone mow my lawn, I would like to see what kind of job they do and the overall apperance when they get through. Not just price. You buy a Kia Vs. a Cadillac, you get what you pay for. You pay the price for 100% quality vs. half azz. That is why I don't like to advertise, because I think a lot of people want to see the work that I have done. Which, that brings me to thinking that I can have a picture book of landscaping jobs and such. So, that's really the reason I don't advertise. But, I have a few people I do just from advertisment.

Which one, the small lopper on a pole, or the extension saw? Man, that extension saw. It is pricey, but it comes in handy. I had a bunch of limbs I had to trim somewhere, and the fuel line was bad on my other. So, I grabbed the manual and man does it work. Very lightweight. Cuts like a hot knife through butter. Plus, it extendes higher than the pole pruner with the engine. I think it runs around 260 new, but to me the amount that I use it is well worth it.

That nonpowered saw cost around 250 or so BUt, it reaches higher than the gas powered one does. The pole that has the loper on the end was 100 bucks.

I like all those 250's I have, I never have problems with them, and I can run them through the entire RPM band compared to the 4 mix trimmers. I have used numerous time the 4 mix trimmers, and never can get an RPM to stay steady, it is always either too low or high, and if you get it on the high side, it tends to sling stuff everywhere.

And oh yeah what were some of the flaws with the troybilt? would you buy it again?

Aww the troy bilt, that is a whole other topic. I literally got so pissed on day I wrote a letter to MTD, but I never sent it.

For a homeowner I would not even recommend

Ride is bumpy as hell

You can't to slight slopes or you will have smoke coming everywhere from the exhaust

You can't mow in reverse. I crossed all the switches for that so I can do it.

It is very light, 600 pounds, compared to the z at being almsot 1200 pounds, It slides around every, does not hold ground well at all

Does not cut well at mid to high speeds.

Does not discharge grass worth a Shi&.

It can't me made into a mulcher.


I can go on and on, but there are a few of them.
I started out with it because money was tight., But it has served me well, I still use it a few times a week, but I really on the Z for everything else.

wow definitley good to know because i see all these craigslist deals but im not the best with engines and i dont wanna buy an old mower and get screwed, An example a guy was selling a g15 for 500 bucks with 1800 hours lol And thanks for the info on the troy bilt

On another note do you save anytime with the 250 compared to a 90? And can you tell me if the 90 is a 50 125 or 275 emmisions engine?

I never had a 90. I don't know about time wise. Emmissions I do not know. All I know is those are the best 3 engines I have. Best trimmers hands down. Ask nosparkplugs, he will tell you the same thing.

One I bought new, the other 2 I bought very cheap because literaly they were wore out. I had to replace the cylinder/piston and rings in both and a few other things. Ever since, they have been great. Almost 3 years old and still going strong.

They are very expensive. I think they now I run 550. This is the last year for production, guessing because of price.

Piston rings. I use a hose clamp to clamp around the rings and push the cylinder over it while th ehose clamp comes down the rings will go in the cylinder.

LOL, I had some hedges I had to cut in half today, then take down some kind of tree bush things to 4 foot tall. People ask what I do, I tell them pretty much any kind of lawn work, I have it all on the back of my buisness card. Jobs like that for me come and go, it's the mowing that is steady all the time.

I notice you like the fs250s..

So do I! Beastly trimmer. I can run several inches of line and leave a razor-straight edge job, not so if I use another trimmer because it won't handle the extra line very well.

They are the best of the best, nothing compares to them, I don't care what is offered. They might be expensive, but well worth it. They have lots of power, and never bog down when I use them. 2-3 pulls everytime. I would not trade them for any thing else.

Thanks, there are hardly any of us around. Most want to do nothing, chase girls ( which I can relate to), play video games. And think working 5 hours in a day was hard work.

I hear crap like that all the time. "aww just got off work" if you only knew what work was......

I'l have to grab a couple next time i go out there. I still have both, the 32 inch i use all the time. That 37 I need to work on the deck for it. There are a couple of bad rust spots on it. But, everything else is fine. The deck is off of it right now to work on it. Hydros and all are fine. I had to buy 2 seal kits for the wheel motors and a few other things.
