I said I have at most 3 employee's Not 5. And I do use a sulky on 1 of my mowers.The other is for my employees to use. they also are still trimming while I finish mowing, or is this a concept only familiar to me? You talk like 40 properties is not alot. I am sorry that you under bid your so much you can't seem to make it work for you. perhaps you should raise you prices to better your position, then you could afford faster mowers and new engines. I have no idea what you mean about cheating the gov., they get plenty from me every year! And I sell engines that are still running its simply easier in my opinion to replace them before they become a problem down the road. Kaw's are awsome eng.s they do last along time if you"Baby them"as you say.
