    You think it is more profitable if most lawns are under an acre. I hread it could be more profitable this way? I am not sure though?

    Minimum fee of $35.00 per lawn, small lawn, 15 minutes tops, LOTS of small lawns, equals big buckspayup ...Large lawn, 45 mins fastest, only a few per day can be done in comparison, equals more work/less money.;)

    On my low side 30 1\4 or 1\2 with little other things to do. But never corner lots. And look at the city your working in. Hint Hint...

    What ever is quicker. If you can walk it faster then do that, if it is all flat and open, get out the Z and do wheelies! LOL

    I will drop my 60 on a yard that only requires 3 passes. The walk stays on the trailer unless I absolutely absolutely absolutely have to use it. In fact, I have gotten to the point where if I cannot ride the whole yard, I pretty much pass on it...
