i went to do the first mowing at a new clients' today, while it is lightly raining. when i got there i saw the front yard, a little overgrown but not bad. then i get to the back yard and the grass is literaly touching the headlights on my mower! i had to use the trimmer and trim it down to 18" then i tackled it with the tractor. The mower went right through it, no problem but they flipped when i billed them twice what we had agreed on because of the tall grass. they said mowing was mowing, but took the bill and paid right then and there. i said thanks and they said see ya next week. but wow, i will be spending a lot of time tomorrow cleaning and sharpening the mowing deck. anybody else have this happen.
