2012 mowing setup SUND LAWNCARE

2012 mowing setup. 3rd year and growing. Hoping i can pick up enough lawns to hire someone this year. I really struggled in the beginning of the year. but it did pay off. 40,000 flyers go out for the next 4 weeks plus about 50 yard signs, so this may be the calm before the storm. everything is washed, waxed, and ready to go. Oh but i'm still missing the trailer. having one built right know now hoping to pick up in a day or two

60'' Dixie Chopper
52'' Toro Grandstand
32'' Ferris Hydrocut

i like them, they are the only trimmers i have ever used. i like the fact you can stop at any home depot and get the regular maintenance stuff for them. instead of going to the dealer thats 30 minutes away. i run only 93 octane in them and i noticed a difference in them real fast (only shell or costco gas 93)
