Hey Man congrats on the new purchase! Sucks to hear about the '01 Exmark, though. Yeah gotta love how people don't inform you of equipment abuse/neglect and problems when they try to sell something.

That storm was pretty crazy here in Wayne county too. I did a couple lawns on Tuesday just in time before the storm. But overall it looks like your doing well and have a bright future ahead of you! It is also good to see you expanding your business.

yeah this dam rain has been throwing me off all dam year, by this time we were dryed out and skipping, now im still on a 6 day rotation trying to keep up with over 50 to do some are city lots so there not terrible but then there is 6 acre monsters, and the usual 1 acre sub division lots. just picked up my first commercial, it aint much but its a start last guy i worked for had some commercials that took half a day and my first one takes 45mins looks like im picking up a shindaiwa edger either a 261 or 242 edger or possible and/or a mclane edger for the thicker stuff and ill be looking for a few new whips, my new one from last year is taking a beating.

That fuel injected Z looks sick! I just skimmed through this thread and I'm impressed. How'd did you grow from 7 accounts to 65 in one year? Business looks like its treating you well, keep up the good work

Well, started this thread a couple years back when i worked for another guy doing this on the side, so wasnt that big, this year i went out and advertised and just talked to people and ended up with around 30-35 total, alot of recommendations go a long way, plus i was in the process of taking over my fathers accounts in a different area then i maintenance my 35, in general its been fun, was on the late side this week with a employee leaving, guy i had trained to do it all and then he finds his dream girl and goes to cali...go figure.
