    If you go to SEARCH that is in the row under the ad above and type in Charge or Price, you will get over 30 discussions on these subjects. There are thousands of good posts here on different subjects. I hope this helps.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    Nilsson has several good books on how and what to look for when bidding.

    give the new guy a break. your too quick to judge him. For gods sake youy dont even know the guy. he could be retired. he may be filthy rich but wants somthing to do with his time. My grand dad workd for 40 years had all the moneyhe would ever need but started cutting lawns because he enjoyed it and wanted somthing to do. Some of you guy are way too quick to judge.<br>-Nick

    If that is true Columbiapower. Then that all we need is another person in the lawn business who doesnt need the money taking away jobs from those who do.

    CLM1- Good Question - I grew up on a ranch in SD. and have loved equipment and the operation of said equipment. As a dentist it is a joy to be out spiffing up the earth God gave us. I wouldn't mind applying for that $85,000 a year job though. Here's saying Hi from small town Iowa.<p>----------<br>Bradley G. Bork, DDS.<br>
