    No doubt, I actually like it because if that's the clientele you're aiming for, the market is HUGE in that department... I know because I serviced a large segment of that market last year and although I got somewhat tired of the low prices, one of the things that made up for it is for the most part, non-eccentric customers. You just show, cut and blow, and see you later all day long! Man you have no idea how much I enjoyed that versus the eccentricity, thou the pay is less / yard, that benefit right there made my days fly by and made it possible to get more yards / day in, which at least made my deposits quite tolerable.

    Nowadays, I get a customer I would not service anymore because maybe my $$ is too much, I'd send them to you if you were in my area, then you can send me the fancy pants and we're set! And that works, extremely well if I might add. No striping, no nonsense, just cut and blow and see you later.

    Thou I still use my '98 proline on those yards, I see the day coming where I have nothing older than maybe a 4-5 year old mower, still I will likely continue to service a fair to good portion of that market, it counter-balances the stress of dealing with fancy stuff.

    Your site looks good. Nice colors, graphics and to the point text. You should add some "alt" tags to all your photos for adding in keywords. Your contact page should be a short form to fill out so clients can send you information ASAP and no more then 2 clicks away. Last but not least - add a links page and put links to other sites on your links page.......it WILL drive traffic to your site. Your in Titusville, exchange links with Keep Em Runnin Lawn mower shop or Bucks, people like to see that you do business with the locals.
    You have a very good start with your site.

    WOW.....

    Im at a loss for words. Not sure if you saw my posts and got the idea but...

    I worked at my idea last year but dident buy the web site till january and finished up my site. So far its working good. Its nice as we dont have to meet the people.

    Our crew is a little different. we run a 36 and 48 inch toro mulching mowers on an f250 srw 4x4 (so we can still plow) and I built a custom flatbed (click my signature)

    No, I got the idea from TJ and Mike at Justmowit.

    They have the system down.

    You havent gotten your bed finished yet or did i misunderstand that post?

    Are you building it on a small frame?? I just wonder how it will work for you too.

    I have my bed build. My fabricator did not build it like I designed it, but it works.

    My bed is mounted on a ford ranger. We load 3 21inchers on ours. Once it starts raining here (we are 8 inches short for the year) it should become a real money maker. It already saves us 1-2 hours per day.

    Hey: saw your ad in the Savings Safari - have you gotten any calls?
    you should check out another publication that will get you calls for less $$
    Try the Little Coupon Book - it is in the Merritt Island area

    No rain equals very few calls.

    Have not seen the little coupon book. Maybe next year. with such a slow start on the season this year, my ad budget is broke (and then some).
