    Hey guys, I have a customer with a $90 lawn and the same size Z-turn as mine and he thinks Im crazy cause I want 75. Im not that worried about it cause he is a notorious jack ass and cheap as hell but I just thought Id ask what you guys would take off for useing his mower and gas.

    I'd add $20.00 for using his equipment. Why isn't he doing his own lawn since he has the equipment/ Something doesn't sound kosher to me

    not an option, you will end up buying it (the mower) when he clams you broke it.

    If it was a large commercial account that had a specific mower for a specific task that's one thing, but a customer who you know to be a pita is asking for trouble. I'd walk away from this one.

    he has alot of $$$, owns 2 restraunts, doesnt have time or just doesnt want to do his lawn. IDK, but he wouldnt get a damn thing from me if it broke.
