I have been mowing for 8 years as a "part timer". Started with a couple of small ball fields and a 160 John Deere mower. Now running a John Deere 777 ZTrak 72", and John Deere LT190 with a 48". Mow primarily commercial accounts, do some landscaping and general groundscare as required. Have a few accounts that require a tractor and bush hog to maintain...use my prize posession for that, a 1950 H Farmall tractor. Primarily do the work with my wife and a son who is now at college which leaves the old man with a lot to do!
