    My best friend and i started cutnturf a lawn mowing, trimming, cleanup, etc. business. We have been friends for 3 years now and have never had a fight or conflict. My history. I live on a farm with 9 horses and chickens, i worked with a guy who farmed 400 acres of hay, corn, wheat, soybeans and learned mechanics and farm knowledge. My best friends history. He is a hot rod guy that has tons of mechanical knowledge. We first thought of doing a lawn bussiness two years ago but never went through with it until this winter. We found a gravely pro 150 50" wb for cheap in awesome condition. Found a sulky for $25 which was a steal! We bought a homelite curved shaft weed whip for $12 and picked a straight shaft weed whip out of the garbage whit all it needed was a spool. We also got a walk behind edger for free. My friend has a 97 Tahoe to pull my 5 by 10 trailer.

    we are still trying to find one that is a resonable deal, all the ones around me have been 30 dollars over priced and can not talk them down.
