Hi. So, here's my story. I'll give the shorter version. Sister had a riding mower. She couldn't get it to start so she gave it to me. I disengaged the blades, started it, and drove it home..that simple. It's mostly junk but got the job done. I've wanted to get into lawn care for a while, but no idea where to start. Meanwhile, a friend of mine got into lawn care again. Been doing it for years. My wife just decided we should move. I wasn't very eager to do that but then the new landlord said they pay for lawn care. Wife thought this would be a selling point for me. She was right (although she thought I'd be happy to not have to mow). I worked out a deal to do the lawn care with the landlord on all their yards. Riding mower broke . I started doing the math and figured out I can buy a Toro timecutter 42" and have it paid for by the end of summer with these yards I'm doing. So, at this point, I'm going to see if I can pick up a little bit more and see how I can do. Oh, forgot to throw in there, the friend of mine that got back into it, has kind of taken me under his wing and is teaching me the ropes.
