Hey how's everybody. I'm 17 years old, 18 December 29th. I started about 4 years ago cutting grass for other people. But I was on my dads tractor long before that. I started off with a 1984 John Deere. I got my first job at the local VFW. And I still do today. And it started off from there. People let me use their stuff here and there. My great uncle who passed away (finnally) bought me a commercial weed trimmer. Then he said I could have his commercial edger as long as I worked it off. So when people seen me doing it I got more and more jobs. I did loose a few, but what the heck. Then when my uncle got his leg cut off, I took his handheld blower. He gave me his 2 push mowers. I bought my self a top of the line stihl BP Blower BR 420 magnum. Then just this past year, Stihl came out with brand new BR 600. So I traded mine in for that. Then in September I bought my self a 2006 simplicity Regency. 24hp 50" deck. I use our old 1996 mini van and my uncles 6x12 landscaping trailer. It works Ok, I don't want to use my 03 avalanche and get it beet up. So I think I'm going to trade in my van for a 96 3/4 ton chevy from my uncle. Plus my avalanche and my dads Hummer H2 won't hold a lot of stuff in the back. So I think I'm off to a pretty good start, I am going in partnership with a person loosing his job after about 30 years of working at one place. He has more equipment, so I look forward to that. What do you guys think.
