    We get to our first job around 7. I would start earlier if it weren't for the stupid HOA sound regulations...

    I mow all residential lawns. I don't want to be mowing before 8:00am. I try to show up to my first lawn around then.

    We aim to be at the first job round 8. Start at 7 or whenever you need to, to be at the first job at 8

    Mowers don't start until 8:30 weekdays, 9 am weekends. You want to pick up the neighbors of your current customers? Don't be an assh0le and wake them up. Starting equipment before 8 on a weekday is going to piss people off.

    I agree rarely we start early if we're trying to make up for rain holidays etc but I always feel bad if we're mowing before 8-830
