Well this year I bought my Toro 266-H tractor and many attachments from one customer and still have $400 worth of mowing to do to pay it off. The last time I mowed his lawn was july 9th and he said to wait. I bartered a 16' car hauling trailer from another customer,, for $300, it needed a the wood floor replaced. Its now paid off. And another customer forwarded me $600 to help me buy the 94 F250HD. I'm doing very little grass mowing right now so very little lawn income is coming in right now. I think the cost of gas has even lessened the amount of hours and tips I bring in in my evening job delivering pizza.
