M.A.D. Landscaping Thread

Hi, my name is Mike and I am the owner of my company M.A.D. Landscaping. I am currently 15 and am attending the local high school. This is my company's second year. I had a 52" Fixed Deck Wright Stander that I sold at the end of this season. I will post a picture of it below. I know I am only 15 but I have huge dreams and had great success last year. I really hope to expand my company this year. Anyways, I hope you guys like the pictures of my work and my equipment as I continue to add pictures. Thanks - Mike

As I said above, I sold my Wright Stander. Well this is what I got today. A Scag 52" Turf Tiger with 3-Bagger and it has a 25 HP Kohler with only 1,080 hours! Sorry for the bad pictures, I was in a rush to take them. All the mower needs is two new front tires, a choke cable, and I need to seal a small oil leak. I should be able to preform all of those fixes. I will also be adding new blades, filters, oil, etc. Let me know what you guys think! It's funny because we drove it home in 15 degree snowy weather and the thing still started and ran like a beast after letting it sit in the heated garage for an hour. - Mike

Thanks, and the reason I switched was because my stander had over 2,400 hours on it and I wanted to get rid of it! It was really nice, it had a Kawasaki engine and was amazing on hills. I switched because of the number of hours and because I need something for all the fall leaves. The vacuum bagger should make easy work of all of the leaves. But, If I had an opportunity to buy another stander used for a good dollar I would, because it was an awesome mower. - Mike

I also forgot to mention how I advertise! I first started putting flyers around the neighborhood and down a few streets. Then when I got a few customers, word spread and I got a few more calls. Also being that I am in high school, I talk to a lot of girls. I ask them, "does someone cut your grass"? and then I ask them if I can cut it? Most of them don't know crap about who cuts their grass or anything so then I talk to their parents and I get the mowing job for the season. It actually works pretty goood! ahahahaha

I found the Turf Tiger on craigslist.. The guy was asking $2,500 for the mower and the bagging system. For the price, I thought it may have been stolen, but the guy showed me all the paperwork from when he bought it at the dealer. - Mike
