    WOW, Just read through all this conversation. I am not too active on lawnsite but come on every now and then to browse and stay up to date. But my story is similair to your guys. I just turned 22. Have had my landscaping business since 15. I do not mow or do maintenance I am actually more involved in sodding and supplying of sod. And also alot of landscape designs and clean ups. Mulch rock etc. I have done pretty well and for kids our age it is extremely rare what we are doing compared to most our age. I have a 2001 4 dr f 450 with the 7.3 as the main work truck and hauler. A 2001 bobcat 863 and my personal/ estimator/work truck 2005 dodge ram 1500.... What are your guys expectations in the next 5 years? And what are your best ways for handling the stress that comes along with us being in charge at such a young age?

    my basic plan is to get through college and see where the business is then. so far we have grown signifficantly each year. so i have 3 more years to make the decision to go full bore, run it on the side, or sell it.

    i really like both equally. being that standers are really hard to find used at a good deal i went with what i could find and knew was a great platform. i liked that i can fold up the platform for transport and tight spots if needed too. i cant say enough about scag walkbehinds though. i had a tiger cub and for what it was it was great but i needed to get something a bit more versitile and with a bigger engine to handel wet grass better.

    Another Cincy Guy! Im 18 and own a tree and landscape company that focuses mainly in total tree care. A buddy of mine who I went to high school with owns a good size lawn and landscape company too.

    Do you climb much?
