    Just saying i recently picked up an Echo Backpack blower from the home depot (since i have the card :laugh: ) originally i was running a BG-65 by stihl and was getting tired of how long it took. Got this thing and it may not be as strong as some of the blowers but it made me $$$ love it.

    secondly my mom noticed the house across the street (a $30 lawn) she says "my son will cut it for 10 bucks" :cry: well needless to say I did because my mom is cool and i figured what the hell ill make 3 bucks on the deal :dizzy: just a cool asss day.

    NO need to reply. If you do cool if not cool :laugh:

    if your mom is so cool, you should have let her cut the lawn for 10 bucks.

    does your mom own your business? if not, then i'd tell her to get bent and not do my bidding. as a matter of fact i'd tell her to cut it herself since she thinks its a 10 dollar yard.

    10 dollar lawns, huh?
    i've been doing this awhile, and make an absolute killing on $10-13 lawns. my houses are close, but if i could get the $10 house alittle closer, i could cut 50 an hour.... no shiit.

    i have this one block with 10 that are lined up, approx. 30 sqft each (curbs, 2' by 15'). one pass of each (and back with the 21"): 21" mower, edger, line trimmer down the out side. bill $100 for < 10 minutes worth of work.payup
    i wish i had a whole route of this, not to mention it gives the customer little time to come out and slow us down.
    what do you get for 300 sqft?

    What's a mother's son to do?
    In that situation you gotta back up your mom's word, or just explain to both (mom and customer) $10.00 does not buy a lawn mow!

    Hey, you might give your mom the $3. profit and tell her to add it to her retirement package.
