ive posted this a while ago, thought i'd re-post it. my real complaint with this site is that you get suggestions from everyone. the kid next door using his 21", the kid down the road hauling his wb out of the back of a gator, and jim lewis who seems like the most level headed guy on here. this wouldnt be so much of a problem if everyone listed a small amount of personal information such as age, years of service, and amount of customers. that way when i see advice i have a better understanding of who its from so may make better conclusions about there experience and comments. i know it cant all be summed up by those 3 simple things, some guys may hvae been formans for very large companies and now do 10-20 lawns while semi-retired, or someone may have worked for someone else for a long time and is just getting started on his own. not looking to upset people but when guys on here are asking about brands and you have someone swearing they have the best one out there, it would be nice to know its a 15year old without a licence, 5 lawns and been doing this for the last 5 months.
