    I was directed to LawnSite by a friend who does lawn care as a full time business. Many of my questions have been answered by the site members,
    already. Some posts are also entertaining :D

    About five years ago , my wife and I purchased a home on 15 acres , that needed A LOT of work. With the house restore done , it was time to turn to the "yard". To open up some areas , I removed several trees and was left stumped (pun intended). Rent a backhoe , or...? In Sundays classified I found "OLD STUMP GRINDER FOR SALE--2000. CALL 555-XXXX."

    We took a ride to look at the old '99 Rayco 1625, with trailer.
    Went back on Monday and took it home.

    It has been working for me part-time for about 14months , now. Many customers have asked if I would maintain their properties also. I am looking into the possibility of doing this FT.

    AND YES , I do have a business lic. , and liability insurance , and a silent partner who gets his cut , taxes.

    Nuff said. Just wanted to finally register, stop in, and say hello. :waving:
