Unfortunately being unemployed and wandering if I will lose my house or not I don't have the money to take a class. I am saving every penny to live off of just in case. I had ll my advertisers remove chipping/shredding from the service list and also removed it from the website. As soon as I make enough money "Maybe in spring" I will replace the motor and starter pushing the service.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
If you have an old mower around, why not take it apart, clean it up and put it back together.

Most of these small mowers are simple in design so as you play with them, you can learn a lot.

Take some pictures as you go to document what you are doing.

In fact, it would make for a great post on here with your pictures to show others how to do it.

Not a bad idea Steve. I have an old rototiller motor laying in the dirt out back I will do it with that one. Its 30 years old but I am pretty sure very close to what I use now.
