Don't knock on him, here's a kid who gets out away from the video/gameboy/ computer and does something. Enjoy the sun, spend your well earned money and hire some of your buddies to do the hard work!

Nice setup. How do you like those snappers? I have the one with the kawasaki which gives more torque than the honda. But the honda engine is solid from what I hear. How much did you pay each for the snappers?

I like the honda engines bc they have a better air filtration system but they dont have the separate oil filter like the kawasaki but I personally like honda better. I paid $878.38 for each snapper.

Looks good! Just get yourself a good pickup truck when you get your license, and you'll be all set! How many lawns do you do? I'm 17, just got my truck a few months ago, and have 28- 1.5+ acre mowing clients.

Looks like your off to a good start, you will love the satisfying feeling of having a successful business at an early age. Having all that money and all your friends are jealous because they are making minimum wage at the gas station! Good luck to you, and have fun!
