    Okay on my way home this morning I pass one of the local Hispanic LCOs and here's Ricardo behind a big W/B, and I kid you not, hes riding on a skateboard, holding onto the pistol grips. I guess the stand ons are getting too pricey these days! :laugh: Anybody else ever seen/heard of anything like this?

    Only if you let him be.
    I am constantly amazed by the posts about scrubs, competitors and market saturation.
    Instead of fixating on others, sell yourself and your business - set yourself apart and then there is no such thing as competition.

    I dunno, I rode a skateboard as a teenager for many years, those things don't do well on anything except pavement... Even on pavement you hit one small pebble and it stops you on a dime, don't even try it in the dirt... I can't see those little wheels going over / through turf, are you sure you were awake? :laugh:
    Thou I suppose it is possible, being how the mower is doing the pulling, I still think it would be more work than plain walking...
