No I have a really good strap its rated a lot higher then what the mowers weigh. I have been plowing snow since 1990 and I started my lawn care four years ago.

Welcome to our forum!

You have a very nice set up.

What do you have for new lawn care start up business owners to help them make it through the first couple of years?

Any tips or lessons you have learned over the years that you can share?

Well when we first got started we went around to a lot of businesses in our area to see if we could give them a price on there lawn maintenance almost every one we went to was interested in a price. When you first get started I know you won't No all the prices so don't price them to high try to be fair and also If you are really cheap they may through out your bid or you my get stuck doing a job that you are loosing money on. What we did was call a lawn care in a different town to get some Idea on what they we charging You may have to call a few to get somebody that will help. Once you get some jobs do your very best work don't cut corners. Remember you are making a name for yourself. If you do good work at every job it will lead to getting more work. Your customers will refer you to other to more potential customers. Also if you have other skills let your customers no that way you will get more jobs from customers you already have. For example I have been a union Bricklayer, cement mason, and did construction work for 25 years and I blend this skill into my lawn care. (To make more money) When first starting don't go get a big loan and buy all new equipment and get yourself in a big hole. When you first get started get some jobs lined up in the off season. Then only get the tools you need to just get started I recommend getting a used commercial ztr, a small trailer. Remember you need a mower that can make you some money. If you think your going to make a living with just a push mower you won't last long. I hope this helps some new guys out. KMZ Lawn Care.

That is very interesting! What did you find was the most difficult time in your business timeline so far? Was it the startup? The first year? Or maybe something else and for those running into the same problem at the same time, what would you suggest to push forwards and get beyond that problem?
