    thats quite a strong statement. i think you should elaborate why you are leaving, because i doubt 15 year olds put you out of business.

    Nothing wrong with that. It's a competitive business out there. Don't think just cause we're young we don't work hard. I know you older guys support your families and well I'm getting money for school and my future.

    I don't believe he meant he was leaving the biz. I think it meant he was leaving the forum? I could be wrong though.

    That's the way I read it, and can understand why.

    Good Luck to ya.

    I know it can be frustrating to lose customers to the young ones. I know most are working very hard but they don't understand basic elements of business and thier prices are to low and hurt the bussiness.

    We pulled up to a project today with our crew and two trucks (2 acre estate) and the guy comented on our epuipment (over $100.000) I guess it take more than a craftman mower to work these days. Plus insurance, workmans comp and payroll.

    There is more to the business than throwing dads mower into his pickup and pulling the electric cord to the weedeater.
