Hi I am new to this site but I have been mowing going on 4yrs by myself (started at 16 now 20) but just thought I would let you know that I started out using my parents trailer 5x10 tilt tractor mower. But after two years of that I split a zero turn (48' scag) with my parents and then purchased my own 5x10 in '05. And now this year this is what I have grown to...I now have the same 48' 2 shindiawa trimmers 1old and the other bought in '07, a 22' push mower lawnboy, and bought just recently a 61' scag zero turn. All sitting on a 6.5ft x 16ft trailer, that I am pulling with my 2000 s-10 reg. cab 2x4. The bigger truck should now be coming in the next few months.

You have a fantastic set up and it's awesome you are able to park it indoors! Nice job!

Are you all set with equipment for a while or is there more on your wish list?

what do you mean by that fourseasons?


Thanks steve I think im setup with everything i need for now the only thing i might add is a new trimmer this year or next, and possibly a newer push mower in 2yrs or so just to up date it. I don't really know right now though what else I would add. Any suggestions?, let me know and ill think about it.

Well steve the only thing i can think of right now is some advertising material, a logo, things like that. Im trying to get all that stuff done in the next 2-3weeks to get ahead of some people, but i haven't made it to far yet.

Well for seasons they are expensive and all but it does depend on when you buy them I just bought the 61" 3weeks ago on sale ($600 cheaper) but as you and every one else know you'll get what you pay for and I have never put any money into my 48" which is about 4yrs old. I have used a John Deere, Dixie Chopper and now I own 2 scags, and will never drive anything else, i highly recomend them.

Andrew, I think what Rob was trying to say is that you've done well for only having been in business for 4 years. .....and I agree!

Hi Andrew,

Are you going to be experimenting with any alternative marketing ideas this year? Like sponsoring a kids sports team? Or anything out of the norm to get attention for your business?
