Hello, my name is Chris and i am 39 y/o. I have worked in the lawn mowing/spraying/landscaping occupation for 20 years, 15 years in the Tampa Bay area and the last five in central Illinois(i grew up here). I have a beautiful wife and 3 great kids, ages 7,10,13. i just recently decided to take a chance on myself and have decided to start my own lawn mowing biz. I found a pretty good deal on e-bay for a 5x12 trailer, Toro 48" gear-driven walk-behind, 2 Kawasaki line trimmers, Kawasaki backpac blower, stick edger, and hedge-trimmers. I also got a pac-man bagger basket for the toro and a sulky and stripe kit. All equipment had less then 50 hrs on it and i picked it all up for $3500. I look forward to hearing from other members on the site as i know that even after 20 years in this biz, i can always learn something new.
