    so i was drivin down the road to a buddies house look down the road and i see a 1995 vw jetta with a 4x6 lowes trailer 36'' toro and blower on the trailer...guessin the guy was trimmin the back or something, but it made me think. i guess no matter what you drive as long as you can pull a trailer you can have a lawncare company....

    If it works... why not?

    Sometimes you need to forget about what everyone else thinks and do what you have to do.... Use what you must.

    What rule book says you must have a 1/2 ton or better and trailer with racks to boot... I missed out receiving mine....

    There's a guy in the next town over that has a 70's station wagon and pulls an open trailer with 2 Z's... Not the norm but the guy has been around for years, obviously he's doing something right.

    heck I started even worse, I started with my 2002 hyundai elantra pulling an old snowmobile trailer with my jd gs45 on the back my first year. I have since upgraded to a GMC 2500 pickup but you have to start somewhere if you weren't born with a silver spoon in your mouth. How do you think Domino's pizza got started??
