    Came up on a guy mowing the side of a driveway. I thought he was riding a sulky. Then the guy comes out into the street on a skateboard motoring down to his next house. Funny as $%#$. Got my morning off to a good start. I couldn't stop laughing. Can he mow on a skateboard? What a **********.

    Talking to another guy down the road later and he had seen the same group where they had a guy riding a bicycle with a backpack blower going to all the yards.

    I think I'll pick another neighborhood. :laugh:

    Why did I chose this business again??? :hammerhead:

    Sounds like they're getting sh** done though...

    The bike thing...around here you see guys on Z's with a Little Wonder mounted to the front. Same concept really, mobile blowing.

    Never forget where you came from. It pays to stay humble.

    A few years ago we seen a guy go past the house riding on top of the gas tank on a WB. He would ride between yards in the neighborhood.

    Not sure why I even bothered posting this. How can anyone possibly endorse using a skateboard or bicycle in landscaping? It's stuff like this that makes our industry a joke.

    With the way the economy is going I wouldn't be surprised if you see some crazier stuff in the near future!

    You could look at the skateboard as nothing more than a detached sulky. The cool thing would have been if he had a skateboard type thing with swiveling wheels to turn on a dime. Ok, Ok... I'm just joking. I've seen my fair share of odd stuff before. A guy hanging out the truck window with a handheld blower blowing off the sidewalk as they rove down the street. That was funny but it worked.

    We use to race our toro two cycles 21 inchers back in the day. Almost 10 years ago, man where does the time go.
