That's all fine and dandy if you are Pulling a tiny little trailer with a few tiny little mowers. And only want 23 weekly accounts.
My trailer weight's 7k+ pounds loaded down, with that said i need a big gas guzzling truck to tow it around, not some Ford ranger/Escape/Dodge neon. Then again i have roughly 4x as many accounts as you do.
That's the difference between someone who is doing this more or less for a hobby and someone trying to make a decent living doing it.
