I decided to post what I am looking for here to see if you guys are interested in getting rid of some of your equipment.

I am in need of:
*2 Commercial 21" mowers. I would prefer them not be Toro but if you are letting some go for a good deal I wouldnt mind.
*Stihl Pole Saw
*Redmax or Stihl back back blower

Dont really care how they look as long as they work.

Let me know
mike@whitpm.com thanks
You prefer they not be toros? What else is there?

Place an ad on Craigs List. You will have more calls and resumes than you can handle. I placed an ad for a driver and couldn't believe the calls. It does cost $25 bucks but well worth it.

New guy here. A Cut Above Lawn and Landscaping Service is my business.

Great site. Love the pics and info.

I service the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area and recently started service in the Lake Worth area. A lot of growth out there.

I hate mowing, so I'm really selling landscaping and hardscaping jobs right now.

Also, selling a lot of Gutter Guard installations (very profitable). Most people are afraid of getting on their roof. Fortunately I'm a bit of a dare-devil, and I still have the "The mission is more important than your life" mindset that I acquired in the Army.

The love of my life right now is my old John Deer JX85. It pulls me up hills, always starts, and I love that I can disengage the blade without cutting the engine off.

I'm in desperate need of a trailer. Minimum 5' by 10'. So if anyone knows where I can get one cheep...

So, for those of you who hate landscaping and hardscaping let me now if I can help when your customers ask you to do some. I'll give you a 10% cut, of course.

By the way, let it rain. That's what a good poncho and waterproof boots are for.
