I found this site 2 month or so ago when I decided to start a lawn care service and can't thank this site enough and the folks that make it the best resource for info. Like a lot of people I was tired of my old job and needed a change. Being I live in Florida were grass grows year round and the start up cost is fairly low I jumped in head first and bought a new road force enclosed 16x7ft trailer,then headed to the local John Deere dealer and bought the 757 60in cut and echo PE-260 edger,SRM-230 line trimmer,PB-430 back pack blower,HC-160 24in hedge trimmer. After finding out hand sharpening was out of the question with these thick blades I bought the magna-matic 9000 with blade balancer and love it. After that I had my logo and name put on the trailer. My logo is of my mower popping a wheelie with an alligator driving with grass clippings shooting out the back. Then I got my lic and 2mil insurance,probably over kill being I specialize in residential acreage. And now added a credit card service and my ads will be starting this week. So I'm on my way thanks to you guys and this site. I can't say enough on how much I have learned from this site and the great info people share! Thanks Scott Hall proud owner of FULL THROTTLE LAWN CARE!
