Hello, new here, I'm a full time diesel technician. I work 4 10's Tuesday thru Friday. I used to mow with a guy in a bigger town and we had about 100 accounts a week. We had two crews, each with a wright stander 36 and a hustler 60. I decided that I wanted to get back into it a bit and make a little money on the side along with getting out of the house and staying busy on Mondays. My goal is to pick up about 10-15 accounts for Mondays and if it picks up a bit more I guess I'll see where it goes. Currently I own, including recent purchases, a wright stander 36 fixed deck, trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer, aerator, spreader, back pack blower, hand tools and a few extras and just picked up a new 6x12 utility trailer and a new truck. I registered a sole proprietorship and am just a one guy operation. I'm pretty much just looking for residential or maybe some small commercial as I do not have a larger deck mower at this time. Looking for any tips on it to help out provide a professional finish cut and decent striping with the stander. Currently running the oem style blade, believe it is a medium lift, have blade height set at 4" with a 1/4" pitch. It looks like the deck has a bit of a backwards pitch built in, meaning while the blades are pitched forward the deck itself measures about a 1/2" lower in the back, assuming to help with striping?? I do have a question in respect to blade height within the deck, currently they are about 1.25" from bottom of deck, not sure if raising them or lowering them within deck provides some different results or not or in theory what it would do. I never messed with any adjustments in the past on the standers, that was done by the other guy and unfortunately I should have asked more questions then and paid more attention. I see a lot of companies already out mowing in small town USA where I am at (mid-Nebraska) but I just haven't seen anyone producing quite the expected result that I was used to up in the Omaha/Gretna/Elkhorn area. I'm not saying that they aren't around, I just haven't seen much of it. It seems most of what I have seen is just as long as it is cut it really doesn't matter what it looks like. We always shot for a 4" cut height before and NEVER bagged unless it was for a spring or fall clean up, I don't even have a catcher for my stander at this point so it's really not even an option. It seems a lot of people around here are wanting their yard shorter than what I am used to, 2-3" and are asking for it to be bagged. I try to explain that 3-4" promotes a healthier lawn and as long as clippings are small and dispersed evenly with no clumping it provides a health benefit to their lawn along with a better striping effect at the longer lengths as well as providing some shade for blade base/rooting systems. I even double cut lawns at no extra cost that are a bit longer or ones they only want to do every other week because I want a good aesthetic result and a reputation for that. It's not like I have changed regions to where grass grows differently or the majority of species have changed. How can I better relay that information to potential customers and sell them on that concept so I can pick up some more accounts? Any information to the above questions or tips for a guy just starting out and wanting a small piece of the pie are greatly appreciated, thank you!
