Why are you trying to talk yourself out of this client? Like others have said, one rock, scratch, or dent and you will be paying way more than that lawn is worth. Just tell Him, sorry but I have to stop mowing your lawn. And for pete's sake tell Him why. Then get into your truck, drive off and DONT' look back.

AND.... 62 IS NOTTHAT OLD. THANK YOU. I am 67, work full time AT CEC. then go mow 4 or 5 yard ea day.

yeah, just responding to posts. My decision is made on it. Didn't mean to imply that 62 is old, it was just a term "old dude" that i use with buddies too. Peace brother.

Get some Lowe's and Home Depot flyers and grab some professional mower catalog's hand it to him and tell him he has some decisions to make. Now personally id recommend commercial equipment but thats up to him but one thing is sure he needs to mow his own lawn from now on.
