My brother and I usually pull it our selves. To tell you the truth it is faster than just pushing our mowers and wheelbarrow haha. But for a few of our yards my mom will pull us!

Looks good man, reminds me of what I used to do back in the day. I pulled a lawn cart with all my stuff with my dad's old wheel horse tractor. Everyone has to start somewhere. That eXmark that you have looks like it does pretty good.

Keep plugging away!

I like that you have cones. You need to use them to establish a work area around your trailer. Should you ever have an issue with someone hitting your equipment or getting hurt around it, you have an established work zone that they entered. That makes them liable for their own actions. This is extremely important!

Hey Man we have a lot in common! I too am 15 and me and my 13 year old brother have a lawn biz. We are located in Northern Virginia. My brother pulls a wagon while I ride my walk behind. I mow and blow while he weed whacks and occasionally blows depending on the lawn. Just curious how you split the profit with your bro- we split it I get 60% he gets 40%. Where are you located? I'm loving the Redmax BP blower. Right now we just use a craftsman handheld blower but I am looking at getting an Echo PB 770 t for leaf season. Our equipment consists of a stihl kombi system 110, Toro 32 WB, and a craftsman blower. Best of Luck to us young entrepreneurs!

Your work looks good! We are located in Louisville Kentucky but in a few short years we will be all over the country haha. As far as getting an echo I would stay away and recommend a redmax or stihl, that's just my two cents. Hope you do we'll this season and best of luck to you! Also thanks for all the responses!
