I still use it for edging in close between the old riding tractor bought for $100 and my $49 weed eater that I use. All this stuff is only used at home because I don't have a single customer and I don't have any idea of when I'm actually going to start in the business. No, I'm not paralyzed by evaluation, I just believe in being informed before I make expensive mistakes. So, I'm reading everything I can lay my hands on. You guys have provided a lifetime of experience that should enable me to avoid at least some of the costly mistakes that kill new businesses, so I'm learning. I really enjoy reading about the things y'all have tried and rejected or sing the praises about. I am excited about the profit potential of this business idea and looking forward to getting out of this chair and back in the field. I have taken an office job to help make ends meet, but I miss my blue jeans and the sun shine. So, write on, and I'll be watching and learning. I visited my first equipment dealer yesterday and really enjoyed talking with someone about ZTR Skag mowers. Thanx

BTW its SCAG, no offense. Welcome to LS

Sounds like you are already experienced in this field and you will be able to help people who are in need of good information such as myself.
