    Well with 5 people and those prices, how long could they last? Especially if all they use is 21's

    Well some customers can freak out when they see bigger equipment, so they only show the little stuff on the website.

    Ya but, how long does it take for them to knock out a 10k lawn ? ..... 20 minutes ? They do 3 houses in a row and thats 75 bucks a hour ! ..... Seems to me they found a nitch and it is working for them.

    Who ever it is has most likely been here at Lawnsite before. Their service details look awfully familiar to the "New Customer FAQ" I posted here a few years back.

    2 stupid questions;
    1. Why have your picture taken on such a crappy lawn?

    2. No mention of edging, do they edge?

    Nothing really new......there was aleast 4 people on here that tried to copy Justmowit. I think PTP was one and pretty sure he was doing well, also DFW. All comes down to location and density. It's kinda funny how these companies are mocked by most on here, and yet every company ive seen on here like this is structured, and has a business plan. Im sure these business plans are close to Justmowits...then modified to adapt to certain areas in the USA. Most on here do not have a business plan I bet, and never did including myself! I say congrats to guys that are willing to take a chance on doing something different!:usflag:

    Depends on the market.

    My area is not populated enough for that to work in my opinion.

    I also think it would be hard to keep help that only pushes a 21" all day long.

    I know I am not willing to work that hard. :rolleyes:
