    I've used real green for years at former employers. Just looking for a cheaper alternative.

    I use it on my iPhone and it works great. Get with the Jobber rep. I'm sure he can explain better. Maybe he can cut you a deal. I found it because of another thread here.

    You can set-up an ongoing service. Once you have completed, say a months worth of mowing, just generate an invoice for that month. I think that's how it works. I've been using it for single jobs, so it wasn't an issue. Check out their help area or give them a call. I did... They were very happy to help. Also, shoot a PM to the Jobber guy on here. I believe they are a sponsor.

    When you pass the 50 customer number, find a way to buy a ride on unit.

    You'll increase production to the point you'll be wondering why you didn't get one sooner. It's amazing how much I labored before getting a Z. Now, a full day of work and I'm not tired and I do 4-5x as much as a guy with a tank and a push spreader. Probably more.

    When I added fert/squirt 3 years ago to my business I started with a lesco fertilizer spreader and a 200 gallon lesco space saver and I'm looking into a ride spreader/sprayer for the bigger yards.

    I actually think I will buy one of the Turfco T3000 as soon as I get my license ;)
