Yeah as solo's its tough when sick, and unless absolutely necessary, I went out mowing sick, but I know what you mean. Im more worried about a broken leg, or arm, etc than getting sick. I can work sick most of the time, but then again a broken leg would be a big problem. Regaring back up/ that's a great point that some people don't think about. I try to have back up every handheld piece of equipment, and multiple mowers that can do the job. I now have a dedicated business truck, but if it broke down, I can still use my avalanche to get by until the truck gets fixed. Which reminds me, I need to take some pics of both my new trailer and truck and get them posted on here, along with updating my signature equipment list.
