well at the end of last year we mowing 100 yards a week, then over the winter i bought out another company so this year we will be doing about 140 maybe 1 or 2 more. the guy who works with me is also 20 and i will be hireing a 3rd maybe evena 4th guy we will see once the season starts.

Awesome dude, I'm also 20, but don't have that near amount of accounts! That would be great if yall could build a small shop or buy one instead of renting out of the storage unit, but hey, anything works, just as long as you are raking in the dough. Good luck this season, we are all going to need it.

i duno maybe he was, but i bought a new trimmer there and had it in for service 4 times they never fixed it, now its a new trimmer sitting on the shelf and has less then 20 hours on it and is being used for parts. another time i had my old bob-cat ztr on there for an oil leak never fixed that either. so i duno tim is great guy to deal with for sales but i don't like the service department.

are you going to there open house?
