I don't know how some of you guys do it. I'm at like 32 weekly accounts and It's difficult finishing a work week solo. The larger lawns really put a cork in my production. I don't mind walking but paired with humidity after a rain and I feel like I'm the one being slow cooked!
Only way I get it done is knowing how much money is rolling in at the end of the day. I can't say no to new clients, it's tough but I make sure there's no price haggling. My price or find someone else.

Be glad you came home dead tired. The alternative is you came home mid-afternoon, fresh as a daisy -- because you lacked work. Coming home dead tired means you took full advantage of the work day.

Nobody makes time. Nobody creates time. We can only invest in time. Doing what we do means staying productive as much as possible. We have nothing else to sell.

Here you go.

There are several "TimeMaster" threads on the forum if you search for them.

It's better on hills than I would have thought from all the negative comments I've seen. Can't comment on the transmission really, but that IS apparently a weak spot. The service dept. at my dealer told me the transmissions are what they see them coming in for.

So far, I love this mower. I feel like a moron for using a 21" mower when I could have been using this for the last year or so.

Thanks Oaknut. I have checked the search bar on Lawnsite about this mower, but have not found much, maybe it is me. I actually talked to a guy using the Timemaster today at a Pizza Hut. Ha said they love it and are planning on getting a second one.

I think we have settled on moving to the Uniontown area. We have reserved our moving truck and plan on heading that way in less than two weeks!! Excited but scared sh*tless!
I have read some people on here say that you cannot pass out flyers in certain areas. How do you know which areas you can or cannot pass out flyers? There may or may not be a low baller in the Uniontown area in a few weeks.
