You about cannot go more than a 1/2 mile here and it is lots of country without seeing new guys, with resi's or big new mowers and new trucks, people packing push mowers in trunks with weedeaters hanging out. Handfuls come up every year this is worst I have seen no jobs around, but most of them are gone within the first year.
One of my customers friends did the jump in to debt deal heads first never did this before bought 2 new Gravely commercials never landed a job in a year, people think it is so easy.
