I hope you're not serious about magnets...

Here's mine..

-Lazer Z Advantage or EFI, depending on the deal I can get, whichever I get I will add on the bagging system and JRCO dethatch and plugger
-01 or newer crew cab (short or long bed) diesel truck, either of the 3 brands, I'm not brand specific, it depends on the deal I can get
-Couple BR 550 or 600s
-Couple Echo Trimmers (string & hedge)


The list goes on. Although I wouldn't call it a wish list, more like a plan for equipement to be purchased, only thing holding me back is the money to obtain it all :dizzy:

The very first thing I am getting before I spend my mad money on anything else is a grass catcher from the company that sponsors on here, cant remember the name off the top of my head but it starts with an "A".

Yes, that's it! I have wanted to buy one for the past four years now. I really could have used that many times this year alone. Best thing is, I can use the same one on both mowers so it will be even more worth buying one now. I got one guy who likes to pre-pay me for the whole year, and that is what I'm going to use it for....Can't wait.

LOL, yeah that would be something....I do wish I had a couple more like that, some nice beginning of the year start up money. Pay up my insurance up in one payment instead of five payments, and you know they always come out with some new toys to buy LOL...

I tell you, that gave me another impossible idea thou it looks like someone beat me to it:

Hell, I have customers that I just wish they would pay me period!

Yeah I know, right!

Pay up my insurance up in one payment instead of five payments.

I'll tell you a little secret, that one ain't got nothing to do with customers paying on time,
seriously if you want that to happen it's all on you.

I've been paying mine in one payment for about 10 years now.
It hurts bad but that one time, after that it's smooth sailing.

Actually it comes around twice a year :p

Yes, me too! Next year I am changing the way I bill out. I'm going to bill out at the first of every month with payment due on the 15TH. This way they are trusting me for 2 weeks and I am trusting them for 2 weeks. Payment not in by 15TH, service stops! I am sick of people taking three months to pay me, and worse, not paying me at all.

That's exactly what I have been doing the last few years. Works out great when you explain it to the customer, they tend to be more trusting with this arrangment.

You might be the one who told about doing it this way, I know some one on here did. I cant wait until next year to be better LOL. I am also going to add that if service is stopped for that reason and they miss their week of mowing, then next time we cut, there will be a double cut charge (mow price x2) just to not give them any ideals of, " hey, I can save money by doing this by having the skip a week or two"....Not going to work! I have a few that would try that....LOL

2011 Wish list? Mine would be to load up the 31 foot travel trailer,hook to the diesel, and go camping to pigeon forge at least 10 times. We went 8 this year. Oh yeah two weeks at Myrtle Beach instead of just one. (father-in-law has a timeshare) Used to work everyday, found out it ain't worth it. I still work hard but its not the main thing like it used to be.

A bent shaft whippy! I love it! Almost sounds dirty! I have one of those, need a straight shaft one myself. Not making fun just had a good laugh!
