    I'm 15, I started my business when I was 13, however this was the first season that I started getting serious about it. God has blessed me with an excellent season this year and my company has grown immensely. I will be purchasing a 6.5x12 trailer in about a month and a 1997 Ford F-250 PSD V8 sometime next fall when i get my license. Anyway, this is the equipment that I've acquired so far. I also have several pictures of some work that I;ve done this season if anyone is interested.... enjoy

    Wow, nice equipment. How much did you pay for that Phazer? Keep up the good work, and keep the pics coming!

    Lawn Enforcer, I paid $4,235.00 Total for the Phazer, I was lucky I got it. It was the last one in Illinois. (eXmark just stopped making them not too long ago) Thanks for the compliments! I'll post some pics of our accounts later.

    Nice setup. Just a question. Why the two mowers? Do you plan on selling one of them? How many accounts do you have?

    Petr, I have another guy that works for me 3 days a week. Most of our accounts are relatively large in size (anywhere from 1-4 acres) so it took us quite a while to do them with just a 48" W/B. I bought the eXmark for next season to cut down on time (Time=Money). Next season, if money permits, I would like to purchase a Lazer Z 27/60 and have the Phazer replace the Scag for the tighter spots. I currently have just 8 accounts, however, like I said, they are very large. I am praying for 12-15 accounts for next season.

    That's great.. I didn't know that the properties out there are so big. Most of my accounts can get done with a 36'' in about 30 minutes. Anything over a 36'' would not make any sense. I would work on the truck before you get a new mower. With a truck you will be able to expand your business to other towns. BTW, how do you get around to your properties?
