    the 6k mower is a one time investment that will last much longer than houlio. @ 9 an hour you only get 16 weeks from Houlio, really even less since you have to withhold taxes, WC , ect...

    Granted you have to feed the mower daily rations of fuel and oil...

    Go with houlio. He needs a job and you dont know how to manage your money. A perfect combination.

    Houlio will probably get deported, go with the big boy!

    I'm sure "JULIO" does not appreciate the way you spell his name.

    my neighbors have a guy cut their lawn. his name is Juan...he has cut my yard when I'm on vac, ect. and he is Lic and insured, I asked.

    but is funny as they call him by name but they say it like this "jew-on"

    I'd buy late model mowers on ebay...you can save thousands. I respect any hard-working lawn guy, nomatter where they're from. Give Houlio the right equipment, and you'll both be happy:usflag: my two cents worth
