Hi guys,

 

My last post was back in July 2016 and things have changed quite a bit.  Firstly my quoting is improving although my wife is far better at it than I am.  Secondly, some serious upgrade in equipment.   Bought a Gravely 21 inch commercial self propelled mower in August last year.   Heavy as hell and difficult to manoeuvre in small areas.  Yesterday I traded the Gravely on the top of the range Honda HRU 216.  Such a difference, lighter, easier to handle, better design, no cut out of motor when you removed the catcher and so on.  Picked up a Hustler 54 inch Zero Turn about 3 months back....what a beast!  Awesome machine.   Trying or get hold of a used Hustler 36 inch Zero Turn now.   Bought a second Stihl Whipper Snipper FS250, great machine.   My trailer is fantastic but I would really like a cage built across the draw bar to house the mower and give me more room in the rear.  Anyway, other than the equipment, I've lost about 10 kilograms of weight.  A good thing really but I come home knackered sometimes.  Currently have about 60 regulars established in 8 months of starting...not bad I think.  Great also to be doing clients that have acreage properties.  Far more fun and interested than mowing your basic front and back lawn.   Next piece of equipment?  So need a Stihl Polesaw.  Until then...just keep dreaming!

I've just started, got 2 customers so far and a couple of yard clean ups. Very encouraging to know I might actually make a living sooner rather than later.

Thanks for sharing.
