Just curious on what you guys started out with. When I was 12 years old I bought a used 21" Lawnboy. The mower cut great and made great stripes, but it was slower than molasses in January. Shortly after that I bought a crapsman push edger and a k-mart weedeater. By the time I was 14, I had 20 lawns in my neighborhood and I would walk to all of them still using the same equipment. That was 22 years ago, and now I have every top notch peice of equipment imaginable. When I look back to what I started with, it really makes me appreciate what I have now along with good health.
