    Just wondering if any of you guys service homeowner's mowers? I talked to A fert company that has 1000-1500 accounts said he sent ads to his customers and picked up around 60 service jobs sharpen blads, change spark plug, change oil clean filters,pick up and deliveryfor mowers at $100 a peice. Just wondering if anybody does this and how has it worked for you. I passed out 1000 ads today in hopes to pick some up thanks

    Obviously what wouldn't be a good idea for me being a lawn service but shoot, for a guy that has a shop and a fert and squirt company it makes great sense!

    They probably already have a shop full of tools and a mechanic on staff, why not make use of that mechanic when the trucks are out on the road working with side work.

    To me, that is brilliant!
