    We just went through our mulch blower. Repaired, sanded, painted, and full maintenance. We even replaced all the decals.

    May I ask you how long it took to grow your business to a "large" outfit?

    Started cutting lawns at the age of 10 with my 14 yr. old brother. My father then got involved using his station wagon to transport equipment to accounts. Our part-time business became a full time for my dad. Out of high school I had a share of the business and ran a crew full time. Soon after, We pushed for the business to get into the commercial market. I was running most of the construction and all the laborers. I am now 52 and have owned the business myself since 2005

    Here is a chipper we just finished going through. The last pic shows how rusty it was getting.
