Hello everyone. Well I apoligize for slackin on the morning humor. Some may have noticed I haven't been on in a couple weeks. This is what I have been up to. A few years back I spent bout 6 years running a landscape company. We did everything from mowing, hedge & tree trimming, Spring & Fall cleanups and a ton of Uni-Lock pavers, driveways, sidewalks, walls, etc. Well I have been doing the mowing on/off over the years since and have really missed it. I decided to start my own part time company that I have been talkin bout for years. I will do mowing, trimming, hedges & cleanups and stick to that at first. Lawn rolling as well. I always did the books and estimates so I have exp all the way around the business. I found a nice 48" Walkbehind Skag like I used before that is in excellent shape mechanically with some scratches cosmetically. Guy wanted $1200, i talked him to $600. I also aquired a 5x10 ft landscape trailer brand new from a guy for $500. An Echo commercial trimmer i bought used but mechanically excellent for $75 from a guy I know. Everything else you can imagine I Would need I already have along with more mowers and trimmers. I filed my DBA and designed my logo & business cards. I'm ready for the season & happy I'm finally doing it. No pic of trailer yet but here's 1 i took of the Skag & the internet ad before I bought it plus a coffee mug of my logo. Sorry for the looooong rant.

Nice buy on the Skag.  How many hours, or was it made before Skag added an hour meter?  The price is right either way!

 

Best wishes on the business.  Keep us posted how it goes!
