    How many people are from Southern Indiana? Tell where you are from and how many accounts you have, and maybe some equipment you run. I am form Oakland City. That is 30 minutes North of Evansville. I have 6 accounts. I mow with a Scag Tiger Cub 48" and love it to death. I just do it for a little extra cash and I just really enjoy mowing.

Got into mowing by accident but love it. I have a hrd time saying no to buisness but gotta start. I have a Hustler 60, Quick 36 and a Snapper 21" couple of Stihl trimmers and a stihl blower. Wish I could do this for a living it is all real fun, from marketing to actually mowing. These guys just dont realize how lucky they are.:waving:

    I am located in Evansville, and service the surrounding areas. I run Ford and Isuzu trucks, John Deere, Toro, and Exmark mowers, and Stihl hand held equipment. The majority of our accounts are commercial but we do service residentals as well. We do landscape design and installation and maintenance, snow removal and firewood.
