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
