  • Grass cutting estimate but using customer mower

    Anybody on here ever get this request ? You bust your *** off to buy equipment and you get asked to cut someone's lawn with the customers mower.

    What do I do ???

    Pass on the job.

    I have no idea why people think that they are doing you a favor by offering their junky, slow and poorly maintained equipment to use on their lawn.

          LOL!

          I had this happen last year, what a joke.

          They just want you to fill up their machine with gas, when you're done they saved! Now they can fire you!

          lmao

            simple tell them due to liability you can only use your equipment and not theirs. if something happened and it got damaged or someone got hurt, their equipment would not be covered under your policy. i have had a few tell me they had a mower but no time to mow. i told them i could take it off their hands for a nominal fee or if it was broken. haul it away and have it fixed or junked. normally i strip it for parts if its simliar to my mowers.

                  Well first do your best not to fall on the ground and start laughing. I don't think I would prefer to use a 300 dollar push mover over a 6000 dollar hydro walk behind

                    What's the point of this though? Is it because they think it will be cheaper for them? Or do they like how they mower cuts? Or what do you think it is?
