    Is it a home lawn? How many acres? 2 passes it looks like... You just make sure the Ipod battery is full and start driving? lol. Would be boring for sure. But sitting on your butt, in a cab, making $$$.

    You are a grass farmer. We see things like that here in Nebraska all the time. We call them UFO's......Unkown Farming Object. Looks good.. enjoy the stereo

    White tail deere walk the treeline all day and red tail hawks swoop in and grab field mice. The factory cab is very quiet and has a cd. I spent the day listening to abby road,MM tour and grateful dead live from nassau, not a bad way to make a couple grand!

    Hey king. I sent you a pm about my sisters house in bridgewater. Not sure if you got it or you just don't work in that area? High end neighborhood, might be nice to get into. Anyway when I was there in July the tru-green tech was there so I shot the Shat with him when he sprayed. Lawn looked pretty bad, lots of poa annua and crab as well as sedge. Think I sent you what they were paying for some un godly nine step program. My brother in law is not re newing with them and taking my advice to find a smaller local company. My sister and brother in law are anything but pitas and don't mind spending money but he is frustrated spending the money and getting tru-brown results. If you don't work that area can you recommend someone? Thanks
