    I think that was the name of this LCO I happened up on.... :drinkup:

    Sorry for the bad pic but it happened so fast I could only use my cell phone to get a quick pic. Of course this is his rear engine lawn tractor sticking out of the trunk of his Olds....the blower is also in the truck and the trimmer was sticking out the window.

    Great picture! It almost looks like he was stealing it. I honestly would be soooo embarassed to conduct business like that.

    Hey mike,
    That was me... Im trying to cut costs so I got rid of the trucks, the good mowers, the good trimmers and cut my prices by 75 percent. Didn't you recognize my bald head behind the wheel?

    LOL. Wouldn't that be a hoot. I did get an offer for 8 grand for the Fuso Dump. Ive been driving it all week. I think 12 foot is too long for that bed. It touches the ground when I dump it. OH, I got that Neary Grinder mod 440 for $250. I talked em down. Ive got the old grinder listed here for sale.

    I find it puzzling that a succesful business owner like you MMLawn has so much free time, that he goes around taking pictures of the scr*bs. You would think that someone like yourself would have more important things to do. People like that guy in the pic don't pose any real threat to a real business, I personally consider them to be NOTHING...
