I'm sure not too many of you use a push mower for lawn care huh? Dumb question I know. I've been using a 21" Craftsman Platinum Series with a 7.25 hp Briggs on it. Great mower I might say, I've mowed more grass with that thing this year, than I have mowed in the previous 29 years of life... (I just started my biz this April) I started with this Craftsman push mower, an echo weed eater, stihl edger, and husquvarna back pack blower and my father-in-law's trailer. All of this cost me less than $500 bucks. I did buy the mower new and craigslist for the rest. I work a full time job so this year I just wanted to build some clients and buy some equipment. ( so far I have bought a 24" Still Hedge trimmer and 2 fixer upper ztr's with no success on either. I know, I know, stupid me. Lesson learned. ) I'm currently mowing 4-6 yards on the weekends and I'm getting tired of push mowing it all. I want to get a 36" walk behind as my next piece of the puzzle... any input here would be great! My plan was to go full time next spring, but now I'm kind of fearful about that. I have a wife, 4 daughters, and one on the way, (Surrounded by women and lovin' life) that depend on me. can anyone here give me some sound advice on this? I dont like my day job... I cant wait for the weekend to come and cut some grass... I Love it! I've dreamed of owning a lawn biz for as long as I can remember.... Can anyone in Northwest Florida help me with prices? I think I'm doing ok with them but you never know. Thank you to you all! I have thick skin so let me have it. All your advice is appreciated.
