Time to buy a walk behind spreader and sell some fertilizer. You'll profit from putting it down, your mowing job will look better, and you'll pick up other customers in the neighborhood who want their lawn to look as good as Harry Homeowner down the street.

Also would like to free up more time for landscape jobs since I've had to turn down a lot this year because I mow 4 days a week and it rained all the time here. BTW I only have put 150 hours on the cheetah in 2 years.

Sounds like it's time to hire some cheap help and teach them how to string trim. It'll speed up the mowing jobs and open up time for landscape jobs. Pay the helper $10.00 per hour, charge $35.00 per man hour on the landscape work. It's time to take a step up and increase your profits using someone else's back.
