    He says he'll mow up to 10 for $199.00 per day! So he'll probably do 4 at $ 50.00 bucks a piece or 2 mid sized churches. Theres no way he'll do 10 apartment complexes for $199.00 a day.

    What an idiot. I couldn't make it off 200/day (5-day week) if I had zero overhead. This guy is going down hard. Very hard.

    What a *********:hammerhead:

    Messing up prices for every legitimate biz..... wouldn't take much of seeing him around town for me to get the IRS involved.

    I'm almost ready to drive to MO, find a lot, and run a trailer tie down auger into the earth and give this ********* a call.

    Go mow for the county or state as an employee and make the same $$ with bennies and no headache.... maybe ride in a A/C cab tractor cutting ROW.

    I just saw this on for the first time on eBay myself and couldn't believe it ... he may actually be able to make some money with that business model !!

    I don't think so. If he gets calls, any calls.... it'll be from businesses that are paying $400+ /cut. That are WORTH $400+ /cut. OR he'll be draggin' his @ss all over town, property to property spending gas. He'll being blowing $50-$75/day in gas leaving him with $125.00 /day. IF he's legit, which it sounds like he's not since he's asking for cash, but if he's legit, now that $125 becomes $75/day. He might as well go work for Walmart.

    noticed 2 things. He is contracted by Kansas City Parks Dept. He is simply trying to fill his route in between jobs and notice it said CASH IN HAND. HE's probably making enough off the city contract to make ends meet and is simply making a little extra dough on the side in between jobs. Genius if you ask me. I see guys on here all the time talk about running tight routes. Aaron Anderson just might be on to something.

    This guy is on this site-named Recession Proof Mowing. Maybe we should ask him how he does it?
