    Hello all. I just registered to lawnsite after looking it over for the past year. There's a lot of good info on here unlike other sites that just talk about the next guy (why I wouldn't register on those). Anyway, Im 32 and have a full time 40hr week job, but do some lawn cutting services during the warmer months (april - november) on weekends or afterwork if not a big lawn. Last yr I serviced about 7 accts bi-monthly. Im hoping to increase this number so that I can help add a little more equipment to the trailer. I know thats not a lot compared to most of you guys but it helped out. I mostly run Husqvarna equipment, [LZ6127 zero turn, 150BT backpack, 326LS trimmer, an echo edger & 6'4" x16 trailer]. Hopefully this year I will get the Husky hedge trimmer (instead of borrowing my friends echo once a month) & 180BT blower.

    So you trying to do the Walterboro,St Geroge, Cottageville area?

    Where do you plan of getting most of your work from? I do a lot of tree work up that way.

    I just mainly do a few yards in Walterboro area on the weekends. I am a solo operator. I don't usually get home until around 6pm or so during the weekday from my regular job and by then when I get in I would have to get all equipment put on trailer to go do a small yard to finish by dark. It would be nice to have an employee or two, but Im funny about how people would operate my equipment, especially when you not there.

    Hey! Welcome to Lawnsite. I'm part of the Engineering group at Husqvarna Turf Care. We build the ZTR's and Walks. If you ever have any equipment questions, don't hesitate to PM me. Who's your dealer? Lynn Tanner at Walterboro rental?

    Take care,
