thanks pat! no doubt, that bobcat is almost 20 years old, my bro got it from a guy that used it to mow his own lawn and it was couple years old then and then my bro got it at 2000 so its been in our buisness for 11 years now

it is, but im not saying anything against you but i hate it that everyone that has gotten laid off thinks they just can start their own buisness and get some lawns. but they are most likly taking it from someone else so its very annoying and tuff to get more lawns with the 1000s of lawn buisness around here that 75% of them are probably been started in 2010 or more recently. i want to get more lawns this year cus i just recently got buisness cards and it would be nice to have more money when i go off to college and being able to afford apparment or something

Nice setup up, a hitch would make it alot nicer. I love mowing grass with those kinds of mowers! I worked for a landscaping company this summer (had a blast) and every now and then I got to go out and cut grass.

You guys and your fancy equipment.

I mow close to half an acre with an Ariens push mower. All the "pros" look at me like i'm an idiot. And then when i'm done, I have to play with all the shrubs, dead limbs, dead leaves, fallen fruits, weeds, etc. I LOVE my job. Too bad it's winter and I don't get much lawn time, just shrub time lately. Thank god for my farmhand job. Year-round FTW!
