Default Hello

I am not new to the mowing. For several years I have mowed for friends and relatives. Recently structured into an LLC with all the Requirements to Be a Legal Business. I am retired from the medical field. Was raised on a farm and have always worked hard. I work PT for another small business and mow for that business and several of the employees . Currently I have enough mowing clients to keep me busy for 3 to 4 days a week. I have a 2004 GMC Envoy and pull 16 foot customized trailer. I use CubCadet riding mowers 50" and 54" and an old Commercial 48" Scag. I have a variety of push mowers and weedeaters , a Back Pack ECHO blower and a Craftsman blower. TODAY I ordered my first zero turn. I mow a lotta of hilly terrain so I have the CubCadet Z-Force S Commercial on order. The 48" deck will work on most all the jobs I have so it was more versatile for me then the 60" deck.

Thank you for the welcome messages.. The new mower is awesome and works well for me on 2 of my biggest jobs that are hillsides. I am planing already for the spring bids in 2013 on some local parks and possibly a couple dams in my county. I like the big all day jobs . I have been researching the Dixie Chopper Dominator mower . It would work well if I land the dam mowing. Then I will have to hire the spouse.

There is no "IF" I do the mowing. I will take Ham and Swiss on rye for that sandwich... Yep you bet he will make me that sandwich if I ask him to.

I have some very picky clients thus.. " Mowing With Perfection " is my company motto.
