Can I cut your grass? Truck isn't done yet, but close.
Looks good, how long is the box? I take it that you will be sending a mowing crew out while you do hard scape. Bought the mowers yet?
14' box. Yes, I've got two wb's and a 50" ztr. Yup, I'm not mowing.
Hardscapers going back to thier roots. I'm pushing hardcore for lawncare this year as well. Good luck TT!
I'm doing it strictly out of opportunity, not necessity. Simple thing to do, my overhead is carried through construction and anything this brings in is just extra. Plus, I think that truck will get a little bit of attention and put my brand in front of people a lot. Aside from mowing when in high school, I interned at TruGreen while I was at VT. That's pretty much my mowing background and I swore I'd never get into it but the opportunity is there, may as well take it.
You will feel diffrent about it very soon. Don't worry. Its not all cake.

No it's not! I swore myself as Tthomas that I'd never do maintenance again, but it's a great way to advertise and get a residual income as well while getting the more fun jobs.
Actually, not bad. Bit of a pain setting up in the beginning (spring/now) but after a few cuts its running itself. Mow the route, send the bill and make sure to address any necessary concerns. Last year ran smoothly. You win some and you WILL lose some but its how it goes and nothing to lose sleep over. Some customers are great, some are a pain. Keep the great ones. Like I said, I'm not relying on it vs putting my brand in front of people and bringing in a little extra jingle.
dang they even did the door jams on t he truck!!!! big spender!
If you're going to do it, do it " ".............just got my "shiny things" for the wheels, as another contractor I know calls them. I'll have the truck back at Easter, finished.
