Starter rope finally broke, best part about it is that it was in the middle of a job. Had to drive 15 miles across town to the shop to fix it and 15 miles back...

Anytime something breaks it seems like it always happens in the middle of job but at least you got it fixed up again.

Am I the only one that thinks this looks like a rinky-dink, rag-tag, half-ass operation using equipment that's one step from the scrap yard?

You have more than likely been in the business longer than I have, every lawn operation is different. Think my equipment is "rinky dink"? That's strictly your opinion.

I'd just rather have one good mower and one good truck than 5 crappy ones I guess. Good reliable equipment is the key to success in this business...well one of them anyway. But I guess you have plenty of backups.
