    i called this guy up to screw with him and told him i need 1.5 acres cut and that he has to use a push mower and asked if he could do it for 30 dollars he says and he said that he cant do it. What a clown. i would think someone who claims they have 15 years experience would know what to charge and have there own equipment.

    yeah you get a lot of clowns in those ads as they are free, and a lot of times you get crappy clients who want it done for pretty much nothing, but every once in a while you get a good client from these sites. I in fact have 3 clients I got from craigslist. 2 of which are reg residential and one, get this. Is a home builder :) i was stoked to get in good with him as he now has me taking care of 3 of his homes that he just finished building and plans on using me for his landscaping job installs also. So don't knock it, as its not all bad stuff.
