Bobcats were about the only Machine? And they were ORANGE! Gas powered Hedge trimmers weighed a ton? So we all had Little Wonder Electrics, and a long orange extension cord with alot of black electical tape on it from our mistakes and splices! When you thought a 5HP Ground Blower was POWERFUL? 1000.00 a week was GREAT MONEY? 5.00 an hour was great pay for our laborers? TANAKA? Briggs&Stratton made the best engines? Having to use PAYPHONES? Especially when your BEEPER went off! When your Wife and/or Girlfreind thought you were NUTS for spending over 1000.00 on a Mower, you had to WALK BEHIND? When that FIRST BIG check came in? That great Spring Smell the first day LAST YEAR? Well its almost that time again! Lets go out and have a Great Season, be safe and be HAPPY:blob3: AND! Lets take it easy on these YOUNG GUNS. They don't know what they missed out on.
