    Ok you guys are going to have a field day making fun of my truck and trailer. That trailer has been in my family for three generations and I am just happy to have it to help me get started. The equipment that actually is used on the client's yard is where I have invested my money first, A new truck and trailer are certainly a goal for me but it will have to wait a bit for now.

    Looks like one was taken in the morning and the other was another day or later that day. The After photo looks much greener but maybe it is just the light. Lawn appears neater as a fresh cut should and over all I think you have done a good job mowing. What Hight are you mowing and what type grass is that in Indiana?:confused:

    Heck you should have seen what I started with. I had an oil burning Pick up with a homemade bed and no trailer. I used a Murry rider and a 19 inch push with a green machine weed eater and a pawn shop no name hand held blower. I actually wrote my first statment on a medical note pad. I went straight to the office place with my first $25.00 I made and bought a stack of carbon statements and a box of pens and a do it yourself stamp pad that included a free clip board. Never be sorry or ashamed of trying to better yourself. If your truck gets you there then that is what matters untill you get the money flow. Later you can add the shine. Good Luck!

    Hey, Is that a tilt trailer or do you use ramps. That house in the background looks alot like my old homestead. Our family house was over 125 years old and the movie "Born To Race" was filmed in and around it. Shortly after that it burned to the ground. Anyway it brings back memories. :(

    Sorry to be harsh....now I do like the pictures of the equipment...that is worth a gander. Just didn't think the before and after mowing was dramatic enough to post pics of sorry. I was unsure of what you were showing, figured maybe you fert or seeded it or something, didn't know.
