Started with a 21" lawnboy that would get pushed around the neighborhood or dropped off by mom or dad...got to be 15 and dad would let me take the truck by myself to lawns in the neighborhood. Got to be 16 and got a loan for a 36" ferris walk behind. Ran that a few years and got an old ferris 48" walk behind. Got 0% interest on an exmark ztr a few years later and just added a new 52" ferris walk behind last year and an 18' enclosed trailer. Now only 1 class away from my bachelor's and have a halfway decent business built up. Only thing I wish I could go back to from the earliest years is how easy it was to get new accounts back before everybody and their mother became involved in this industry.
