    That looks like a bad a$$ mower. I drove over to Penn Hills for an open house a few weeks ago and the Wright rep had all of the mowers lined up. Wright makes a nice mower, no doubt. Their 48" Stander is more compact than my Grandstand. If there was dealer close by I would consider one. When I was in Florida a couple of months ago, Wrights were everywhere. There were Wright dealers all over the place down there.

    Should be mowing next week. I just sold my WB edger and old stick edger last week. Going down to my dealer to pick up a new one today. I spent way too much money this off season. Time to start making some money.

    Oh no thats fine! I just would like to hear some local guys opinions on subbing with companies because I am debating whether or not it would be worth it to do. I am really trying to double the amount of lawns I cut and gain more landscaping contracts so I can quit working 3 jobs!! :dizzy: Just wondered if it was worth it or not, but from everything I am hearing it seems to be a thing I should stay clear of.

    did it once for snowplowing wasn't a huge fan, I got paid eventually but wasnt worth it for the actual price. I see nothing wrong with subbing especially for local companies, its all on the sub and their reputation of paying, type work etc. I would even sub for nationals if they were good. But even the few good ones I have heard some bad things about not paying etc. I am sure there are some out there especially local management companies etc I just havent looked into it too much. Just really gotta know who your working for and build up trust with them.
    Welcome:waving: couple of mine will need mowed next week
