    Its a good idea, but how efficient are you? How many lawns can you do with your battery powered equipment before having to recharge?

    Very cool and great looking CL ad. CL has been my biggest call back rate this year because most people in my area just right up short non professional looking ads and I took time on mine to really sell myself and put up a bunch of before and after pictures! Needless to day it's payed off! Best of luck to you and your business

    That's a nice solar panel setup. What's your trailer pack / battery base look like? Are you running a charge controller of any kind? What about your gear- brand? Very interesting.

    Each battery lasts an hour. I have a number of fully charged batteries at the start of each day and charge on the go.

    Yes, we have a full solar recharging system complete with inverters & controllers. 300 Amps of AGM batteries.

    We use Core trimmers and blowers and Greenworks 20" dual blade mowers.

    Thanks Paul! We are very new to all of this so it's great to have encouraging feedback, especially from fellow 'lawn-guys'. My husband Steve has worked long hours bringing all this together. The economy 'nudged' him to do something new so...here we are. The website will be up later this week.

    This board is a great resource, thanks all! We look forward to interacting and contributing as the business picks up momentum.
