As for equipment, if it weren't for parts, I don't have a warehouse where I can work on stuff...
So if it rains I can't work on most of my things either, then it seems when I do work on something it's always one more thing.

But ebay, that account's fairly caught up, at least those sales are kicking in $500 a month.
Who would have thought, I gross more selling parts than on any single residential account.
Wasn't no easy task thou lol
Post us a link to your ebay store and well order parts from y.

Here it's been raining all week and it's getting to the point that you can't even use the 20" mower because they are sinking in the overly wet lawns and leaving ruts. We actually had horrible incident yesterday where I was mowing a small backyard with a push mower and it started to sink so bad where I had to take a trimmer and just use that.
