1. At least he doesnt have to worry about theft....no one would want that!

2. If you fall off and skin your knee, does that count as workers comp?

3. You won't have to worry about "endo's"!

4. How many gears is the bike to pull a rig that size?

5. Looks like someone got a DUI....

6. Do the bungi cords in the front really stop a mower from shifting in a trailer?

7. To make it a 2 man crew, do you just add peg's?

8. Extra chain? Check. Bike helmet? Check. Bell in working order? Check.

Laugh all you want but we had an old guy in the town I grew up in that never learned how to drive and he pulled his mower all over town behind his bike.

That's a neat idea, but it would clearly make it impossible to grow very big, because it would limit where you could travel. Be ok maybe starting out, but I can see he'll eventually need other means of transportation to service more customers. I prefer a truck and trailer myself to reach more people and get there quicker. LOL.

I can't tell the age of the business owner there but if he is a teenager without a license yet, that really shows determination, creativity, and drive!

He is out there creating his brand and making money! Good for him. The lessons he learns through these experiences can be scaled up as his business grows in the future.

If he used a push reel mower, manual hedge clippers and edgers. Then he would be on to something. That whole green thing has a market but to bike a gas mower to the job?
