  2. If you're going to do per cut billing......

    See just what I was talking about. Single out the guy stating the obvious, not the guy who is the source of the problem.
  3. If you're going to do per cut billing......

    This thread shows how useless this site really is. This idiot can rant rave and be just plain ignorant and he is not policed, and there are guys asking good questions because they want to learn being belittled by "the pros". Just because you call yourself a landscaper doesn't mean you know...
  4. Stihl br420s not living up to standards?

    I bought a new br420 magnum last fall and I think it is no good at all. It has to be pulled on choke twice and 4 times off choke every time before it will even think about starting. The plug gets fouled constantly because of the starting procedure and now there is a leak somewhere in the...
  5. Nosey Neighbors

    My neighborhood is zoned residential, but I applied for a variance when I started the business. The township sent letters to the four neighbors bordering my property and there was a sign in my front yard for 2 weeks prior to the zoning hearing. These people had a free forum to resist my...
  6. still a ? after searching "striping"

    Make the striper the width inbetween your tires. The tires do their own striping, but reverse your pattern every week. Going over the same pattern week in and week out will darken the stripes but it will also lead to the grass not being cut evenly because it is not being lifted properly by the...
  7. Exmark Lazer Z Mower 27 Air Cooled Kohler

    That is an unbelievable price. I have the same mower, 27hp lc 60" deck, and paid a fair amount more than that. You will love that mower.
  8. Would have chased me with a bat!!!

    It is really a frustrating catch 22. We have had rain here every day this week and the previous weeks have not been much better. You either don't cut the grass and get chewed out for not cutting it that week or you mow when it is wet and get grief for that. I still haven't found a good answer...
  9. shouldn't the customer be responsible???

    One pruning cut at ground level should do the trick.
  10. grass clumps everywere

    Double mow the lawn. First cut the lawn at your finished height and wait for the clippings to dry down a bit (i.e. do your trimming). Then go back over the lawn a second time with the deck of your mower raised 1/2 inch. This will get rid of the clumps and clippings. Try not to go over the...
  11. Undercutting the competition still profitable for me

    The interesting thing about Chevyman's posts are his insistance that he is professional and his masterful selling skills, but in the end the way he acquires new accounts is to have his price lower than the competition. The quality of your work and your sales skills should allow you to gain...
  12. Deck Pitch - Why? What for?

    Both of mine were too. 1/4 inch lower in the front based on the spec in the exmark manual. Causes less drag on the blade and in theroy extends the engine life.
  13. More stripes

    Thanks for the nice comments. Yeah, glllc he can't wait to get started. alldredge, The riders are both exmarks. The one on the front of the trailer is a 48" w/ 21hp kawi and the one in the back is a 60" w/ 27hp kawi liquid cooled. They have both been great. The Honda is new to me this...
  14. working alone

    OOPS, don't tell my wife!
  15. taking too long to mow!!!

    These guys are right on the money. I used to bag clippings but 2 1/2 years ago I switched to double cutting and the improvement was remarkable. You can make a lawn look like lawnranger by cutting let the clippings dry down a bit so do your trimming, then raise the deck 1/2 in. and retrace...
