I am not an LCO, I only cut my own. A few years ago I purchased a Woods mower with deck out front. Kept it for a while then sold it to a LCO. I recently purchased a Hustler Super Z 60/28 EFI. I live in a rural area in the South on a farm. I cut my own yard and 3 acres which was at one time a pasture, plus lots of area around fields and ditchs. I was raised on a farm, and continued to farm until 1990, tobacco, corn, soybeans, and wheat. So believe me I know what it means to eat dirt. Before we had tractors and combines with cabs, you either froze, or cooked, according to season, but you always ate dirt. There was no way around it. If you've ever picked soybeans without a cab, you know where I'm coming from. You wake up the next morning and you eyes want open because your eyelids a glued shut from the previous days dust, and you spit gray flim 24 hours a day. I'm also familiar with hard labor, after farming I went to farrier school and shod horses for a few years. I thought cropping tobacco on foot was back breaking until I began to shoe horses. My point is: I know what hard work is and I'm not scared of sweat and dirt, but for all of you who cut grass for living and eat dirt and dust day in and day out, whatever you charge your customers, it ain't enough. All I can say is you earn your money and I applaud you and you'll never have to worry about me trying to steal any LCO's business. Just wanted to share my thoughts after cutting all day today.
