Alright, well i have been cutting grass since i was 11. Im still is Highschool and I have one year left. Most of my stuff is my dads old stuff or Im borowing like the trailer and truck, but come mid june i should have a 6.5X14 tandem that i will be buying. I tryed to advertise this year but only got 3 accounts from fliers and yard signs. I use shindaiwa trimmers and a redmax blower along with a ferris walk behind. Besides that i have a craftsman edger and self-propelled trim mower.
More photos to come, srry these are from my phone.

thanks bobcat! i hoping for alot of new equipment this year, New blower, stick edger and trimmer possibly...at the moment the T-230 is in pieces, im trying to rebuild it, not sure what to do, it has a list of things wrong with it. And hoping for a zero turn by the end of the year. Odly enough i have been picking up more landscaping and mulch jobs than lawns. Any advice on getting more houses? i understand the season has started already but any help would be apprieciated.

lucky i still have another week and a half:cry: but yeah shindys are good but i dont think id use anything but redmax for blowers, but im not as a big of a shindaiwa fan since they were bought out by echo, once that happened they dropped all the good models, the T-242 is alright but id take the T-230 any day out of the week, stupid epa:hammerhead:

I guess I should join the teen scene (I'm 17, 18 soon) lol...First off, very very nice work man. I'll try to get some pics of my work / equipment uploaded soon. I'm trying to save up for a new, larger trailer. I just got a Redmax ebz8001 blower, and I will tell you guys...it is a monster. Its waaay overkill for light summer jobs, but I'm using it year round so it will pay me back during the fall cleanups. I also want to get another Shindy trimmer and aside from a larger trailer, I want to get a 36" walk or a ztr. Best of luck with you both, and since school is over..we get to have fun all summer lol. Except for me, because where I live, it has been 100+ degrees outside everyday this week.:usflag::usflag:

GOD BLESS AMERICA

nice T-242 and congradulations on the blower, im thinking about getting the slightly smaller EBZ7150, and my dad use to have two snappers but after years of getting the living crap beat out of them they died lol, they were only home owner models. and good luck to you both as well! looks like i will be putting off getting the new trimmer for a week, too dam busy

Just an update, just bought a 1999 GMC Yukon yesterday, feels good to own my own truck, i know SUV's are not as proffesional as a pickup but its a start and hopefully next year ill buy a truck, but like i said its a start and hopefully will run for a long time, i bought it with 200K miles but we new the owner and he put a **** ton of work to the truck within the last 45K miles so it was a good deal, pics in the next few days, hopefully everyones season is going well!!!
