    Hey, Ill play. As I had to start over this year, I am now solo. I have the JD Z925, a Stihl FX100 trimmer and a Husky BT150 blower. Not the best blower, but have had good luck with them. Thats all I have with me on the road so far daily. 03 GMC 2500 HD pulls my 6.5x14 foot single axle nicely. Have other stuff for light landscaping, mulch, hedges, but don't carry them with me daily!!

    I watched a fellow Push a car...
    Up my neighbor's driveway, it isn't super steep but it has a slope to it that,
    let me put it this way, our driveways are almost side by side and I wouldn't
    think of pushing a Wb up mine, much less a car!
    I couldn't believe my eyes, but he made it, how I don't know.

    He told me he was out of gas.

    Then I saw his lady friend sitting on the passenger side...
    I guess right about now this technically concludes the story.

    But how odd, I thought, he pushed her, too :p

    My honest guess?
    He "allowed" his car to run out of gas so he COULD push it because he wanted to impress her,
    by showing off his manly virility in ways only young men can do when confronted by how to
    deal with an attractive member of the opposite sex.
    I was figuring, poor kid done lost his mind, which it all adds up to about the same.

    Whether she was actually and truly impressed, that I could not tell you, but I reckon if she was smart
    enough to realize that this was his way of saying "I am REALLY interested in YOU!" then it may have had
    some kind of an effect, she did keep a straight face through it all and revealed little...
    Which made it all the weirder, and funnier still.

    If it had only not been for the fact that this kid could have really hurt himself doing that...

    Been a single man operator for 13 years now and very small operation (supplemental income to help pay for home upgrades... car upgrades when I first started):

    1991 Acura Integra (tow vehicle... don't laugh... I am working on getting a truck)
    4x6 landscape trailer (added this year) with a 2 position trimmer rack (Jungle Jim)
    2 Husqvarana 21" mowers (Honda GCV160 powered)
    1 Echo line trimmer (SRM-230)
    1 Echo edger (PE-230)
    1 Echo hand blower (PB-200)
    1 Echo hedge trimmer (HC-150)
    1 Craftsman push edger (3.8HP Tecumseh engine; wasn't purchased for my work, but it gets the job done and is rarely used)

    See... just a part timer that has had the same customers for at least 7 years and I do not try to take business from the full timers... I wouldn't want them treading on me, so it is a matter of respect.
