The MOW JOE thread actually prompted me to start this. This thread actually is about a class a little lower than the MOW JOES, and I mean no disrespect to anyone trying to make a buck in this business. I have noticed a sharp decline in the number of lawn mowers being towed in the back of cars and pickups and trailers in this area. I attribute this to several possibilities. This late in the season most of the equipment that I once saw in service is not running anymore. The quality of work produced by this equipment finally caught up with the operator. Or, maybe these operators just didn't have the "stick to it" work ethic that it takes to make a run of the lawn business. I see no increase in my business as a result of this, but I didn't see any decrease in it early in the spring when these guys were out there. I think we traveled in "different circles." I used to see 10 or 12 of these operations around here everyday, but now they just aren't there. My town is not large........maybe 40,000....Where did they go? Who is mowing this grass now? Has anyone else noticed this?
