    Hey..

    I just joined these forums and I figured I would post a little about me in here since I'm bored and maybe somebody would be interested.

    I will be 18 years old in a few months, and I have been mowing lawns for about the last 5-6 years. I am the sole owner of my business.

    I started with a $80 MTD yard machine when I was around the age of 12 years old, and my dad also bought a $10 O'Ryan weedeater from a garage sale. I was about to go out of business and into my next venture this year when I got a great opportunity to buy out another local lawncare business.

    Taking this opportunity and in combination with my previous business I have 50+ accounts.

    Here is a list of all of my equipment:

    This equipment is used on a daily basis:
    1993 F150 4x4
    2004 Texas Brag Dual Axle 20ft trailer w/ blower, trimmer, and cooler racks..
    2001 60" Dixie Chopper w/ 25hp Kohler and striping kit
    Late model Encore 36" Walk behind w/ 14hp Kawasaki
    2006 Stihl FS55C Trimmer
    2001 Shindaiwa Pro Grade Trimmer
    2001 Shinidaiwa Backpack Blower

    Other equipment includes:
    1985 Dodge Ram 1500
    Late model 42" Craftsmen w/ 16HP Brigs
    6.5hp Brigs mulcher/bagger kit for the Dixie
    2005 Bed edger with honda engine (forget brand)
    2004 Craftsmen gas powered hedge trimmers
    5.5HP MTD Yard Machine 21" Push Mower

    I'll probably put some pictures on here later.
