          You're starting with more than I did.

          Is that a Yardman 4 stroke trimmer? I have one as a backup and for the split shaft attachments I picked up dirt cheap on clearance.
          It's OK for the attachment stuff, but as a trimmer, it's terrible compared to my Stihl.

          PA plates on the trailer... what side of the state are you on?

                    Seems like this type of work is a lot better out there. Before I even thought of giving this a go I had people asking me all the time to keep there lawns up to par and now is really slow 5 customers of mine lost there jobs ( all worked at the same place) they were bi-week cuts and now I'm down to the two.

                    But there not even that good of customers there really cheap they just want quick cuts don't care what it really looks like first time I did there places took 2 1/2 hrs 1 hr to cut at $60 pruned 2 trees that were really bad $30 and trimmed the hedge's $30 and hr and the edging and clean up $120 I don't think that was a bad price.... So now it just cutting the grass at the $60 and everything other then the lawn is all wild now

                      Some stripe's if you want to call them that.

                      Just picked this account up today. The guy that used to do it was charging them 350 every two weeks I took it over and charged 225 takes about 2 1/2 hrs to cut tons of ruts from the last guy cutting the same way every time...

                            Not sure off hand close to 3 I would think..I always take my 2 kids down there to ride there pocket bikes but the grass was way too high so I came down to cut it and the owner stopped me and told me about the other guy and what he was paying him I told him who I was and a price I would do for and he jumped on it. Talking to him about doing more for him as of mulch, pruning and such so we will see how it goes...
