I only work in my neighborhood off of middle road as I don't have a license and am only a sophomore in high school. But good luck this season and if I see you around I will say hi. If you ever need a helper on mulch jobs or anything I am a very hard worker and I can run equipment. I will also be working full time this summer at Oakmont Country Club on the golf course grounds crew. Good Luck and hope to see you around.

Thanks! I always use at least one 22" on all of my yards to get between the trimming and places the walk behind cant get. Some those are the only mowers I use. Usually its me and a helper. So i always take 2 with me and I have one as backup at home. The one has a problem with the drive and the other one doesnt bag as well as the rest (the older one) so eventually one will be phased out!

I will keep you in mind! My brother is a sophomore at Shaler! I actually do alot of work off of middle road! Around 50% of my customers are right off of Middle.

That's pretty much what I did, I have eye hooks on the inside of my boards to put a tarp on or ratchet straps for the bigger bushes/branches. Works pretty well!

Oh and the equipment looks good man, that's a heck of a lot of push mowers!

Thanks! I really only use 2 at a time. I do a lot of tight areas and super steep hills! Gotta love our area!

Yes! On super steep hills we use the push mowers but anywhere I can get the walk behind into and operate it safely I will use it. I think once I get a 36" a lot of my problems will be solved. But even at that one or two of my customers only want me to use push mowers which is alright with me because they always throw me extra work.
