Have you done much with your local social network? Do you market through friends and family? What about different social organizations you may be a part of? Or friends of your may be a part of?

Were you looking for consumer or commercial models?

From what we have seen on the forum, most consumer models won't last more than 200 hours while a commercial mower can last over 2,000 hrs.

ok then what brands and models would you suggest for a low-budget solution that can fit in to an s-10

Well a commercial push mower and a consumer push mower are going to be close to the same size. I just wanted to point out the difference in hours because it may inspire you to check out craigslist.org and see if there are any used commercial push mowers available in your area for a good price.
