    do you get a lot of business with the pressure washing?

    is there any money in doing that service?

    Mowers and truck get washed and wiped down at least once a week. I cant stand letting my truck, bikes, or mowers get nasty. Yes, pressure washing is a good thing to get into if you already have a washer or can get a good deal on one. 99% of people do not own pressure washers and once they see how clean you can make their driveways, decks, siding, etc. they will be calling you out 2x a year. I do about 15-20 pressure washings a year, anywhere between $25-50/hour depending on how bad the surface needs cleaning

    How do you like that 36"? I heard it only has one hydro pump. How does it work?

    Yea, it is a single pump and I loved it until I got the 48" which has the brakes to turn it around. You kinda have to muscle the 36 in turns but after a few uses its really easy to pick up on and I usually just do a 3pt turn around. That was my first "big" mower and I still use it on about a 1/4 of my yards with backyard gates. Cuts real nice and have not had one problem in the 300 hours Ive put on it

    I love your Ferris mowers, but I REALLY like that truck with those tires.

    Hey that is the way a mower should be... it is a Sunday ritual to clean mowers, trailer, truck, etc. If you treat the equipment right it will trat you right. I have never pulled up to a site with a problem with any of the equipment. *KNOCK ON WOOD*. I had a lady tell me one time that I am the only company she will use because she knows I will treat her property with respect and keep it clean because I keep my own stuff clean.
