Check your state's insurance department website or you might try calling them. The other question I can't answer because we have had record amounts of rain this year so mowing has been above normal and excessive since early spring.

Well I don't know what site I used but its one that matches you up with insurance, try doing a google search. I believe its Prime Insurance Solutions, im still waiting on paper work. I got 587 a year for a 300k liability plan with 6000 in equipment with a 500 deductible. need to put 25% down then i pay 53 a month, 6 extra cause i spread it out over 9 months. hope this helps
