Thanks man...I definitely recommend the Redmax....I've used some of the other brands and nothing has impressed me like these blowers (and trimmers and edgers). Nahh, not done yet, we go right up until Christmas. Then usually we have a few stragglers that we take care of after the holidays.

Your cleanups look real good, very professional! How many laws do you service?

We mow about 70, mostly residential, but a few commercials and provide fertilization for approximately 55. Thanks for the compliment bro!

What would you recommend for advertising? Really going to try to expand next year and even move into a new town or 2. Ive thought about spendin some bucks on nice color ads in newspapers and fliers but just dont know the best way to go about it. What would you do? What worked for you?

Here are the things that worked for me. Truck and trailer lettered up, flyers to areas that you want to work in, refer a friend program to your existing customers, and last but not least talk to everyone! I will talk up my company to anyone that will listen. Always hand out your cards. One of my first customers came from when I was buying my wife's car, I was telling him about my company and slipped him a card and in a week I got a call for lawn service and picked up the account. The biggest thing though is word of mouth...just do quality work and have great customer service and the calls will come.

Redmax dealer compares the EBZ 7001/7100 to the BR 600. Stihl dealer compares the EBZ 8001/8050 to the BR 600. I asked a Echo dealer and he compared the EBZ 7001/7100 to the BR 600 but then he told me not to buy either.
