    Me and my father have been doing mowing for 5 years. We have decided to go commercial. I was wondering when was the best time to file for a service license. Also any good insurance company's in NW Ohio. Also any suggestions on equipment. We already have 2002 F-150 Supercrew Fx4 tow package and an 1994 1ton, a 7x16 tandem axle, 2 huskee 46" tractors for ditches, and a 50" dixon ztr, we have 2 lawnboys 21" 19", Mc Cullah trimmer and blower.

    How long have you had the trimmer and blower FordMan? Do they hold up fairly well with routine use?
