I have read several posts on the forum whcih have been really helpful. I live in NW PA and work a full time job with a flexable schedule. I have a utility trailer, gas edger, blower and Honda mower that I use for my home lawn. I ahve thought about mowing as a way to bring in some extra income which I feel will pay better then what you'll find in the typical job market. One BIG problem....I don't have any accounts? I spoke to one of my best friends whose brother has been in the business for years, and he offered to have me mow with him for a day, but it never transpired...I thought my first step was to place a ad in the local paper, second to get a commercial grade mower..Can anyone give some suggestions for my situation...I think I could handle about 4-6 accounts to start...I have looked at the 36" Exmark Mowers as well as the Gravley Mowers..Also do I need insurance and how much does it cost and wher do I get it...Sorry to sound so uneducated, BUT I am in this area. Thanks for your assistance.
