Do you think we need a part timers ONLY section on here?

    I agree with this. But at the same time I kinda like asking the full time guys maybe I think they have more experience but most on here do have more than me. either way it goes I will still get the valuable info that LS has offered since I have joined. Dont see a problem with it at all

    Id say no, since a whole lot of us full timers started out part time.

    That's a real good idea.

    I'm a part-time guy. I don't see the point really. Solo on the other hand maybe. Not all part-timers have old beat up equipment.

    That's kinda what I had in mind. I have help sometimes, but mostly solo.

    Unless you have the investment to start up, but most start out with a used mower, maybe they have new handheld power equipment. Or there in debt.

    All I was saying was people run their businesses in different ways, full or part-timers doesn't matter. Some buy new truck and used mowers, others buy used trucks and new mowers. There is all types on both sides.

    I'm part time per say but cut daily. I have all new equipment and I trade it after 300 hours. Trucks aren't brand new my flatbed is a 95 model and my NPR is a 2005 model. And I've got a few other trucks. Mowers and all that though is brand new pretty much yearly.

    Part time and startup is two different things. I've been part-time for 5 years. I've upgrade over the years. I started with a new cub z force, sold it when I needed better. I've reinvested, and now I'm at the point I don't need anything for a while. Good equipment makes your life easier, like they say time is money.
