    Yesterday I saw the ultimate mowing vehicle and trailer ever! It consisted of a 97 Ford Taurus pulling a 4x8 Harbor Freight trailer and bouncing down the road like it had basketballs for tires. He had the trunk open also carrying a 21"er and in the back seat was his brooms sticking out of the one side window. The trailer consisted of another 21"er, a rototiller, electric weed wacker and a drop spreader and 2 bags of fert. (Yeah I bet he is licensed) All of the equip. looked 15 years old. Not to bash him but come on I think this really makes him look ridiculous. If your gonna do it half a$$ed at least do it half a$$ed. But he had a nice magnetic sign said "T*%'s Economical Lawn Service"

    All I have is a truck, but at least it looks nice with my stuff on it! Everything strapped down and nothing dangling around out of windows and such. Plus I charge out the ass and get away with it! I like to charge high cause i'm lazy and dont want to do a twice the lots for the same amount of money.

    Problem is, they never have the initiative to move on to anything bigger or more professional.

    This is true, but some people start there and stay there.
