Yes i mowed two lawns today and half way trough the second it started pouring so i finished up with the mowing and went home and took a nice warm shower. Gonna fish up with the trimming tomorrow and with the other lawn.


Weird story btw. I come home yesterday and see that my neighbors lawn has been cut. Thats the lawn that i was supposed to cut today. So I email them aksing why their lawn was cut and if they still want me to cut this season. They told me that they werent home when the "pros" cut it so they will cancel their service and will let me cut. The same thing happend to another customer of mine. This little joke cost me 70 bucks this week

somethings not right. i've never and i mean never seen a rider like that put down any stripes like that picture.

i use to own a rider like that and it never would stripe. no matter what i did, short of actually installing some sort of roller like the striping kits use.
