today i got 4 new lawns, 3 of them, were because i have a 32" mower. i was driving down a sidestreet, and another lawn guy flagged me down. he says, "hey, if u r interested, that lady in the house over there came over and asked me to cut the grass, but i can't get my 36" through the gate. " so i knocked, we talked, i got her, her nieghbor, and her mothers house which happens to be right on a street where i have 5 others. all these new ones at premium prices. why did i get them? i have a 32". the fronts are wide open and i bang em with the 48, but the back gates are small. i know "bigger is better", but remember, you must fit your environment, if small gates are an issue, don't turn it away, just have the equipment u need, and charge accordingly.
