    Yes we specialized in large area and slope mowing. Right now it is just me, but 2013 is going to be an expansion year for us. I am currently running a 61 inch grasshopper 227 and a 36 inch ex mark stand- on. I am scheduled to pick up a new grasshopper 930d 72 inch. I have done this as a sole income in the past, but right now it a 40 hour a week part time gig. I do have a day job as well.

    Welcome aboard. Do you cover just South Atlanta or do you go down into the South metro counties too?

    Well Falcon50EX... There are so many. This is a new venture for me and I'm not sure where to begin. I'm working on getting licensed and insured, name and logo. But I really still need to know what I'm capable of with this equipment.

    The mowers are both 61", but I'm not sure I'm going to be ready to do this type of lawn. Take a look if you can and I'll reply asap.

    The size of the deck is not the problem. I run 61's all day on half acre lots. The problem is reliability. If you have to constantly work on your rig you are not out making money. It took me a while to convince my wife of this but she has seen the light. It is more expensive but we only buy new stuff now. Plus it really helps out when the time comes to pay Uncle Sam.
