    Just wondering if anyone does a fall blade sharpening, oil change, fuel stabilizer, etc. on push mowers and tractors for people. Seems like there could be good money in that.

    I have a couple of fertilization customers that I have serviced their 21" mower before for free. Takes me maybe 15 mins every couple of months. I look at it this way, I am making sure my work looks better by maintaining their equipment, and also it goes a long ways in the means of customer relationships

    You could probibly make quite a bit of extra cash doing that if you advertise. I would like to do that but I live 5 1/2 miles from town in a hard to find place so that wouldn,t work for me but it probibly would for you.

    Sometimes, and usually try to save that kind of work for slow winter months.
