1.how much are sulky's? can a 36" with a sulky handle dragging around my 220 pound butt? do they slow down mow time? 2. can you mow with a 36" mower on wet grass, won't it leave ruts? If it does, how do you get around this? 3. I have a tight schedule and want to schedule 5 yards a day for four days a week, with a fifth day to tie up loose ends/rained out yards. What if it rains a few days and I just can't catch up on the fifth day? Is it OK to just skip that week and start as usual on their next scheduled day? 4. I've never even used a push mower, but the 21" mowers that are self-propelled always give me transmission problems (had a honda $500 21" and a $500 21"). So I'm thinking about getting a snapper commercial push mower to save money, but are they hard to push? Are you guys having problems with self propell wearing out? Also what's your opinion on the 22" push murray with the 4.5hp briggs engine for $149? 5. What is the advantage of a contract. ALso I heard a guy say he prorated his contract to get paid all year round? what does that mean? 6. How can I save time on edging/blowing/mowing? Any tricks? 7. Who thinks a stick edger saves time? I consider myself fast at edging with a trimmer. Plus, isn't the extra time to get the stick out, use it, put it back, get out the trimmer, trim, put it back, etc. more hassle than it's worth? 8. I don't want to go legit, but all of you say I have to. So, if I"m gonna do that, what kind of tax write offs/advantages do you guys take advantage of as a legit business. 9. How much net a year do you guys make and what kind of operation do you run? 10. How many of you guys are sick of mowing yards and how many guys love it? 11. What do you say to a customer if, for whatever reason, you want to stop taking care of his yard?
