    How early do you guys start mowing...I need to be able to mow as early as possible tomorrow. The houses I will do first are both unoccupied but their are neighbors..I was thinking around 8AM? Thanks...

    PS: I am only using a 21 so not too much noise

    Some cities have noise ordinences that would prohibit lawn mowing before and after a certain time. Around here it is about 7 A.M. to 9 P.M. I don't know how much these ordinences are enforced since I haven't had a problem yet. But usually around 8 A.M. would be ok.
