    I'm fifteen.

    1999 Chevy 2500 extended cab (Big White) :weightlifter::weightlifter:
    5x10 Carry-On Trailer
    Toro Z 150 w/52" SFS
    Toro 20055 Super Recycler
    STIHL: FS 110, FC 110, FS 55,BG 85, BR 550, HS 45

    I plan on trading in both mowers this year for a Stander and a Pro-Line Toro.

    Next Year (I get my license in February:)) I plan on getting an enclosed trailer, plow/salter, and possibly a 36" WB.

    I have twenty weekly mowing accounts, I would do more, but I do a TON of landscaping installs and other landscape maintenance jobs (Bush/Hedge Trimming, Aerating, Power Raking).

    This year is going great so far! I'm making about four times as much as I was last year.
