    I think it is against Federal Law for a LCO to hire a 14 year old to run equip.

    But Good Luck!!!!

    When asking people to hire you I'd recommend making sure your post doesn't contain spelling errors, that you use proper capitalization, punctuation and don't use slang contractions like "any1".

    It certainly doesn't make you look better to have a post full of errors and slang when looking for a job and will easily turn off propsective employers.

    Good luck.

    First of all, Learn to spell!!!
    Second, it's quite hard to believe that you are 14 and have even used a ztr let alone are effecient with one.
    By the way, what types or machines have you used & be specific.

    First of all, I know how to spell. I hve used the following ZTR's: Dixon, Toro, Great Dane, and Scag. I've used these because my grandfather is sick and can't mow his own lawn anymore, and I do it for him. His property is about 3 acres. Thats how I know how to use the ZTR's. Just because i'm young doesn't mean i'm good. Any other comments?
