    Add us to the list. We are in Buffalo, Griffith's Total Lawn Care. Next summer is our second season in lawn care. Right now, we are just waiting for snow, so we can do some plowing.

    Haven't seen this sight in a while....

    I've been plowing snow for 4 years in the Twin Cities, but it's getting a little lean lately - about 30% of my customers are contract, the rest are per-push. With less than an inch of snow so far in January, things are looking pretty grim on the balance sheet.

    I'm new to the lawncare biz, and figured I would focus on an area where there isn't a whole lot of competition in the Twin Cities - acreage mowing.

    Since I already own two tractors, acreage mowing was a minimal investment for me. I've got a JD 850 utility tractor with an 84" 3-point deck and a smaller articulated tractor with no deck yet, but I'm thinking about a 72" or 84" for it. Both tractors are 25hp (net @ PTO) Yanmar diesels. I've also got a 26" WB for trimming, I'll probably get another WB and have one on each trailer.

    I'd be happy to trade job leads or subcontract with guys that do smaller or tight-fit jobs. I know there are big jobs (meant for 84" decks) and there are jobs better left to Z's.

    Since I don't have a fert license, I'd also like to find a licensed fert applicator to subcontract for me.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
