    HAy guys:

    there were 2 black kids cutting in my area I seen them around town and they had some decient jobs, these guys were like mid to early 20's
    They had like a home depot ZTR and a few old push mowers, BUT the other day I seen the cops taking there equiptment...

    Dont kno what they did, But I was wondering if anyone knew why they would loose there mowers and trailer, "other than if it was hot" ?

    also I think I'm going to give it about a week then play dirty pool and swoop down and get there contracts....

    It might be a civil action. Could be several reasons. Kind of hard to speculate.

    It was probably stolen equipment. Did they take them too?

    If You Mow without a liscence in Sc they will fine you and take your equipment. It happens rarely but does help eliminate any one with a mower and trailer from doing buisness

    If the trailer isn't registered its like a car....they'd tow it and what ever was on it!

    When I was in college the guys mowing my companies lawn had their equipment taken in the middle of cutting our lawn. They apparently had a nice little drug business going in addition to their lawn service. When the police "raided" their residence and they where not home the came and picked them up.

    This would have been a good episode on COPS.

    Weed out the bad ... keep the accounts for the Good Guys :weightlifter:
