2011 mowing season pictures

Hey guys,

Since a lot of people are posting pics of their gigs. I was like why dont i do it to. So here you go. My "new" bad boy that I bought used on craigslist for a very nice price. And then I have my little dump cart that I use to carry around, gas for mower, gas for blower+weedwacker, and my Stihl BR550, and a crappy crafstman weedwacker( it gets the job done tho)


here are the pics

I mowed my own lawn on monday had to try out the new mower off course. But I will start cutting for one customer tomorrow and the other 6 on saturday. Its been rainy here for the past few weeks, with some days in mid 40's low 50's so the grass grew a little bit. Anyways im in the philadelphia area. Where are you located?

yeah right on. i wouldn't mess with a stripe kit.

that thing stripes better than my toro grandstand with stripe kit.

it's nice to see hard working guys though. most people wouldn't even think of starting a lawn business unless they could get a truck and trailer to pull the equipment around in.

i know i would have never started my business that way. i'll admit i'm on the lazy side sometimes.........
