There are several VERY POPULAR companies who are well known for being the cheapest around "AFFORDABLE GUY" affordableguy.com and this company is not hurting for work...in fact, they are one of the busiest lco's around.

For the record....if Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder opened a lco, whether they charged $5 or $500 for the cut, it would still look the same.
This Affordable Guy's "Gold Package" says his package includes 26 cuts starting at $9.99 a cut! I realize the catch word is "starting" at ... but I wouldn't even pull my trailer over there for $9.99 ... let alone take a piece of my equipment off of it! Come on ... $9.99? Leave that job to the local kid who wants to make a buck after school using his dads Craftsman push mower and his dads gas.

Ya, "affordable guy" have to be very busy to make any money.

Ray and Stevie, if they started an LCO, would not do the actual work themselves, so how does that comment make any sense at all?
