    Haha about time we see that shiny new equipment put to use. I know you got some crap on this site, but I gotta say I'm impressed with the way you started your business. And you have probably the best name and logo of any LCO I have seen. It really stands out. Best of Luck. This is my first year also, but the grass isn't ready to be mowed here yet.

    hey thanks guys!! I did 7 lawns today and all around 1/4 to 3/4 acres. started at 10am and finished at 6:30pm. I think the suckiest part is edging the lawns that have never been edged before..that sucked!!!! Their has to be a quicker way.

    BigW -- I didn't realize this was your first year in business ... you did it in a very risky way, buying all the new equipment before you had any customers !! Also, with a new website ... wow ... alot of expense loaded up on the front end of it !! Good luck !!

    hey big, out cutting already... good for you. don't think i need to tell you but, make sure you leave enough time each day to at least "dust off" all the equipment. no runnin HARD and hangin up wet. ALWAYS keep the mower decks clean top and bottom side!!! dirt and dust is a decks and/or machines worst enemy. moreover, a "clean" (under)deck will not clump up as much. i see you have a nice power washer... if you have time use it at least every other day and your beautiful equipment will stay that way. good luck, it all looks good. have a good one.
