Old enough, 6 years (11 years total), just me. Like I said a few pages ago I'm working a self employed job. Oh yea ready for this that will set off a nuclear bomb in this thread......I do this part time. Just in case you question my business I am registered, have insurance, pay taxes, have a website, and have a CPA to help me. I'm cherry picking accounts so no need for low end stuff. If it goes well enough I'll jump ship but low priced guys have slowly prevented this. But I moved this past year to hopefully a better market that isn't so saturated.

Look up and read their business threads. All the answers you seek from them are in there. Just be prepared to read a lot of pages.

They'd probably be surprised that Jim just recently bought his first mower bigger than 21 inches....a 36 incher...after 16 years. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.p...t=larger+mower
