It's always a good thing to be busy, it is a bad thing to be slow or no work at all. How many customer's are servicing this year if you don't mine me asking. also what type of Echo edger do you run, I got the PE-225 but I think it is a little under power.

I have 14 Regulars, which equals 2 days of mowing for me anyways. They are larger property's 1-2 acre. That number will probably go up, I always seem to add one or two new customers. I have believe I have the same one, I would have to go out and look. I agree with you on the underpowered for overgrown edges but weekly edging, no problem. The problem I have is that if you lay it on its side a certain way the engine floods and its a pain to start. How many property's you servicing this year?

I have 5 Weekly accounts signed up at this moment, I have a couple agreements out there waiting to come to hear back. This is my 1st full season on Lawn Care, I normally only do Fall clean ups and Snow Removal.

No, I have 1 elderly customer that goes out and gets the fertilizer and I spread it for him. Mostly cause he likes to stay as local as possible.

Powerstroke,
Do you do any fert?
What Kinda rig you have for mowing?
What areas do you service for mowing?
