hi all. this is my first post and hopefully I get some decent responses. this year I am only mowing 5 yards. I am doing each of them on a 7 day schedule. just being honest , im only 15 and don't have a vehicle license. I use the owners ztr on 3 out of these 5 yards. and one yard I have is just until the homeowner buys his own mower. im making 75 a week. all the yards are different sizes and take different times to mow. but when I get my license this fall im looking to buy a mower. im "inheriting" my dads 99 chevy 2500 for $2,500 or so. and he has a 5x10 trailer im allowed to use. our mower is a john deere 265 with a 48'' deck. I hate to use it because it leaves a horrible ridge. any suggestions on a walk behind for on the cheap side. or should I just start with a push mower. I plan on buying an echo weedeater and blower. there cheap and good? and im figuring on a 25 dollar flat fee. then $10 for every man hour I spend at the job. since I don't have much start up cost. any words of advice you can throw my way are greatly apprectiated.
