My other question is do u have any advice for advertising..............
First of all make sure you don't have spelling errors in your bids, I fixed your post a bit for you so Proturf can read it better. Second you know how long they are going to take you, so just use your hourly rate to figure mowing out. Advertising can be different everywhere you just have to try a few things and see what works best for your and your company. There is door hangers, direct mailing, walking into business's, cold calling, newspaper ads, phone book ads, there is so many options most company's will tell you that word of mouth is one of the best.

Here are a few pics of our bark blower. We put some bigger sides on it to carry more mulch this winter. One of the techs from our local Finn dealer came to our shop & went over our machine with us. They taught us quite a bit about different aspects of it that we were not aware of. We are excited to start blowing some mulch!

If anyone in the MA or NH area needs any mulch blowing this season, please contact us...we'd love to work with you!

Holy stuff to go wrong!! in that last pic! lol

Looks great, the extra sides are a good idea. Did they mention if it would affect the floor chain any or wear it out quicker due to the added weight. I was at a local dealers demo for the finn products last week. Very impressed. Slowly pushing us closer and closer to the purchase of one when the timing is right and we find the right one.
