Last Mow

Tomorrow I have 25 lawns to mow and it will be my last mow. It's been a learning experience and I know I'll miss working for myself versus working for the man. All the accounts sold and half of my equipment. I will be craigslisting for a few days and then off to South Florida 5-6 days a week.

I seen a craigslist ad recently that I thought might be yours. Hope you got a good deal for your accounts and I wish you well.

With battling the rains and the heat I often wonder my so many of these business can fail. You really have to be a special person to be an LCO. Yes the winter season can be great but the summers can be hell.

Mike, that wasn't my setup. My helper bought my accounts 32 mower and one set of handhelds with the br600. I still have a pole saw 5x14 trailer and a bunch of stick equipment, sod cutter etc...

I will be building power lines again. It's worse than mowing in the heat and sweat department. Health insurance is a big factor for the change in careers. I will still come back on the weekends just going down to west palm area during the week.

Well I wish you well. I know health insurance is not cheap so I can respect your decision. Shoot me a PM on the sod cutter hours/make etc. I might be able to move it for you. Let me know on the sticks and trailer too. I am seriously debating going ahead and throwing another trailer on the road this year even though I planned on holding off.

Thanks,

Mike
