The friction from the high pressure water can cause heat and a fire

The last thing you want is for a water fire to start, those are very difficult to put out.

Ya they can burn for days with out you knowing
the flames are real hard to see

They don't come cheap either, you're looking at $400 a pair.

Well you could hire 20 or so part timers or go out and by like a 6 foot wide lawn mower.
Whats your opinion Cheese? :confused:

You could probably get away with obtaining a lot more Mexicans for under $400 for 3 months. If you are lucky, you might even find a group of Mexicans who supply their own mowers. A lot of the Mexican fathers usually bring their children, but I wouldn't let this get in your way. You can have them bring the other Mexicans water from your truck when it gets hot.

To cover your Mexicans for transportation, you should get an enclosed trailer... but a big blue tarp over the bed of your pickup does the job.

Good luck, let me know how it works out!

Have you created any business cards yet and handed them out to people you know? Does your family know you are now in business? Do all of your friends? What about everyone that lives on your block?
