I am hoping for some advice and some tips from some more experianced guys. I would like to get started in the lawn mowing business this year. I have a 42" cut zero turn Country Clipper w/ a 17hp Kohler Command on it and a 36" Snapper walk behind zero turn w/ a 15hp Kohler command on it. I have a 12' land scape trailer and Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 truck. I have a Stihl FS46 weed eater. Please help me put all this equipment to use. I am only 20 years old (turn 21 on 3-19) but I have a solid work ethic, and I am great w/ people. What I need to know from you guys is how to pick up clients annd when? It is 2-18-06 right now how soon should I be looking for lawns? Spring is just five weeks away. What about insurance and things like that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
