I have a regular job and can be dependable. I own a Scag Tiger Cub 48 and a Wright Sentar 36. with a enclosed trailer to haul my stuff .Please let me know. I probablly can be what your are looking for. Email me if interested!

    I was really just making a comment; I have some sites I'm subbing out to a guy with a bush hog. If you'd be interested than that, I'd be willing to let you bid on some of the work that we have.

    I live in River Ridge, too.

    I'm actually in the design stages of a project for a woman on Sauve Rd. that was telling me about her lawn guy who's a fireman.

    Do you do any work on Sauve?

    Hey guys, I just finished my hort class at delgado with an A!!! I want to take landscape 1 and hort certification to get my licence in the fall. Does that sound like the right classes to take?

    Also I look forward to a great summer and really want to add a 46" exmark lazer. Would that size mowe be productive on smaller properties in kenner/metarie? I'm keeping my phazer and selling the wright stander if anyone is interested.

    We have a 48" Tiger Cub that we never, ever use on our residential properties. The only real use you'd have for a mower that size would be either commercial or larger residentials (for example properties in Ormond).

    I think that the 46" would be a waste if you're cutting mostly in Kenner. In addition, you need to be very careful using a mower that size on residentials in this area because of our low sea level; it seems like the ground is always a bit moist. It's real easy to rut with a larger, heavier mower.

    Just my .02...

    Thanks for the info. I really want one but I know I would have to start cutting out of kenner to use it.
    What mowers do you use on residentials?

    We only cut a few residentials as part of a full-service maintenance package; we use Snapper 21's.
