I've been doing this for 20 years, more or less. Started out with a Kubota G1800 with a 54 inch deck and bagger. Wore it out and bought another. Now I have a 21 inch and a 34 inch walk behind, a Hustler Mini Z with a 52 inch deck and a Hustler ATZ with a 72 inch deck, A kubota BX2350 with a 60 inch deck, loader, tiller, aerator, brush hog, sprayer, seeder, and rear blade and landscape rake. I do both landscape and lawn maintenance on residential and commercial sights. I prefer to work alone, but occassionally am forced to hire temporary labor. I have contracts on 32 properties and have 13 more that I maintain on a weekly basis. I haul everything around with an F - 350 and a 25 foot goose-neck trailer.
