Come on!!! $15 a cut. Is that the best you can do? I'll do it for $14, first and last months free, one free yard of mulch, and oh yeah 10% off if you sign a contract before October 31st.

I am in Ann Arbor and will do FMCSA inspections as well as trailer repairs and modifications.

We also modify truck bodies. Have a certified welder on staff. Will do wiring, brake, axle and bearing repairs, painting, etc.

Well I can afford to do it, My eqiuipment is paid for and I have workmans comp and liability insurance. I would rather make 35 or 40 and not move the truck than 15 and driving 5 miles down the road and pay my guys to sit in the truck and ride around and get paid.

You guys are all sooooooooo cool!!!!!!!

Hmm lets see... $15 to cut a lawn described as "nothing to it", that's across the street for another account. What's that take? 15 minutes? Hmmmm $15 for 15 minutes sounds like the dollar a minute that guys like to spew about so much. Not sure why internet forums seem to be jerk magnets.
