i started when i was about 9 with an electric weed eater and customers mowers (only 2 customers). when the electric burned up i used a weedeater brand weed eater my dad had. then bought a new weedeater brand weed eater from Wal-mart. this spring(2009) i bought a 2002 hustler super Z 60in cut 25h.p. Kawasaki with 2000 hours for $2500 and a used echo curved shaft. oh, did i mention im only 14? here are some pics of equipment and work at my house.
