    I was at Home Depot today and out front they had a 10' landscape trailer with an Ariens ZTR, backpack blower, trimmer, and a Lawnboy in the trailer. The sign on the trailer said "start your own lawn business" $5142.00

    they are predestined to failure.One salesman told me every
    one he sold has come back.
