    Don't forget guys there are two types of business's here catering to two different types of clients. There is business X using a car to pull a trailer with a walk-behind and push mower serving 20-30 client X's who only wants to pay $20 to have their lawn cut and thats it.. Then there is business Y using 10 Ford F250's or Izuzu box trucks pulling 10 double axle trailers with bigger mowers of all kinds serving commercial clients or customers who want more done than yard cuts, i.e, landscaping, new sod, trees, etc. for alot more than $20..

    They arent even competition for each other.. each one can do a different job than the other.. If your going to compare apples to apples make sure its not apple sauce.

    No one is comparing anything. This thread is designed to showcase ALL trailer setups whether it is a smaller setup or a larger outfit.

    That's what I'm talking about.
    I got rid of my V6 Escape and bought a 4cyl Escape, While all these super high overhead so called good business people that are paying $800+ in gas a month for there truck are laughing at us, were getting great MPG, I'm getting 21+ in the city and 25+ on the highway while pulling my 1300 pound trailer and equipment and I'm only paying $230 a month in gas on 23 weekly accts :cool2::clapping:

    it not all about the mpg i pull my 16 foot trailer around with a f450 dump it get 10mpg but it all about having the accounts to cover your expenses. but i could never see working out of something that you had no place to throw yard waste. And with also using a car/suv what about delivering material to a job site

    Coastal Lawn stated my point exactly.. These guys work in two different markets.. Guy with car/ ford escape does the mow,blow,go yards whereas dump truck guy can do the extra work you just cant do without the larger vehicle

    They don't even compete against one another because big guy cant do the mow and go 23 yards a week whereas little guy cant do the larger jobs the big guy can
