    Hate me because I'm the guy with the white beard and hair in the little pickup with a push mower, string trimmer and broom. Seriously though .... Folks have to qualify for me to mow for them. They have to be too old or handicapped and can't afford to hire it out. I don't charge but will occasionally take a tip if I think it will help with their selfesteem or pride. And you can bet that when I leave it looks as good as if they paid top dollar for the work. I started in the mid 60's with a reel mower, moved up to a gas powered with a crank (remember those) and got the first rider in my neighborhood. I've cut everything the golf courses could grow, from the club house to the greens. I deal with independent dealers only and buy everything made in U.S.A. I can.

    Here till I'm gone, Ron

    Couldn't edit because the post is too old so I'll reply instead. Drop the Shindaiwa & Honda and replace with Stihl FS 90 R & Snapper RP21875BV. Oh yeh, might as well add the '94 Toyota 2WD and broom to the list, lol.

    It makes me happy too. If your Stihl ever breaks down on you and you need a new trimmer, I do have a ShindyT242, practically brand new that i don't use. It's yours if you want it. I will pay half of shipping coming from 06370. This is an open door offer, to you. Take care and keep up the good work and good vibes! Peace!:)

    Thanks LR3, that's a very generous offer. I doubt I'll ever have to take you up on it but I'll let you know if anything changes.

    To all: I kind of backed into this 'hobby' by helping an 85 year old widow. I was always taught to respect my elders and learned along the way that the old folks are our truest national treasures. If only the young folks would listen to the elders the country and world as a whole would be a much better place.
