    I have so many miles on my feet, I can't even imagine. I think old school cutters could have walked across the U.S.

    The hardest part of this business is the counting, i do it to work out the calories i burn, for my weight watchers program. :walking: :laugh:

    omg you are reminding me to WALK the mower?
    I did that for some time, but I guess it didn't stick, I must be getting lazy in my old age.

    would be interesting if you stuck a pedometer on your guys (or yourself if you do a lot of the walking) to come up with some averages. :walking:

    I used to do county roadsides, I would average about 24 miles of edging in one day. The road being four miles long, edging both sides of the sidewalk and the curb then blow them off.
