    well here is what i did
    last year i bought a dynamark rider, and had a old trailer that i used. i used a craftsman push mower along with the rider.
    i raked in over 2000 that first year. i also got 4 more push mowers and a bolens trimmer(worst purchase)
    this year so far, i have made about 500 dollars. i have made a trimmer rack for my ryobi trimmer. this year i have also got a craftsman edger. pretty good for a 8th grader?

    Bailey... u know better than to ask a question like that, when u operate craftsman mowers u need at least 3 backups always ready... #1 is the main then when that goes down in the next hr. #2 becomes main, so on....

    Hey man i think your full of it, in your profile it says you should be turning 18 but you have 12 and you say your in eight grade??? yeah and last year as a seventh grader you bought a rider? OK that makes sense. And four mowers and then the trimmers. Like I said i think your full of it but hey...

    my problem is children thinking they are in business, only greif i give anybody is about being legit..... this industry is going down hill with lowballers and children who think they have a company.....

    i admire and respect a kid with the get up and go to work.....
    i live and work in a very small town, i have a kid mowing my neighbors yard for 10.00, its a 50 dollar yard.... kids with mowers in big citys arent competition ..... but in a small town its devistating to the market....

    buy insurance, workers comp, license for state and county, and stop mowing for peanuts, and ill reconsider my position....

    you dont like me , oh well i could give a rats behind, i have underware older then you....

    im not here for you to like.... im here for the benifit of my business, and hopefully to help someone else along the way....

    i have many post that are helpful and positive.....

    whats wrong with a kid making ten bucks?

    If he wants to undersell something and bust 50$ worth of his ass for ten bucks, let him.

    I'll just go find another lawn.
