Well, I was an environmental scientist/geologist/hydrogeologist, not an engineer. The places I worked at were environmental consulting and engineering offices. I would investigate and delineate soil and groundwater contamination and the engineers would figure out how to clean it up...more or less. I did make more money doing that but I've yet to have a lawn care customer tell me that I needed to be in Dallas tomorrow if I wanted to keep my job, lol.

Thank You .But I know about the 580 on ebay for $499 or the Redmax 8500 for $496.94 but I thought Pantano was a better place to buy from.


I been laughing that all this engineering stuff because I work with a man for about 8 year cutting grass that was a engineer he said 20 year and that he hated it and that he love cutting grass.He gave me his T square and I use it all the time I even use it today.

That's the thing about this industry, and I guess really anything you setup yourself there are no limits only yourself! I was a technician not an engineer but hated it, when they said my position was being eliminated it was such a relief, I knew I wanted to do something else just didn't know what, I just started my business really as a stop gap until I found something else, here I am five years later and still going, can't see going back to all those headaches.
