    Alright, well i have been cutting grass since i was 11. Im still is Highschool and I have one year left. Most of my stuff is my dads old stuff or Im borowing like the trailer and truck, but come mid june i should have a 6.5X14 tandem that i will be buying. I tryed to advertise this year but only got 3 accounts from fliers and yard signs. I use shindaiwa trimmers and a redmax blower along with a ferris walk behind. Besides that i have a craftsman edger and self-propelled trim mower.
    More photos to come, srry these are from my phone.

    thanks bobcat! i hoping for alot of new equipment this year, New blower, stick edger and trimmer possibly...at the moment the T-230 is in pieces, im trying to rebuild it, not sure what to do, it has a list of things wrong with it. And hoping for a zero turn by the end of the year. Odly enough i have been picking up more landscaping and mulch jobs than lawns. Any advice on getting more houses? i understand the season has started already but any help would be apprieciated.

    lucky i still have another week and a half:cry: but yeah shindys are good but i dont think id use anything but redmax for blowers, but im not as a big of a shindaiwa fan since they were bought out by echo, once that happened they dropped all the good models, the T-242 is alright but id take the T-230 any day out of the week, stupid epa:hammerhead:
