Default The story of my lawnmower.

I have a 2008 Self-propeled Troy-bilt lawnmower i bought 2 years a go at lowes for $365 out of my savings account. I originally bought it for neighborhood lawn mowing but nobody hired me so it was a flop. Instead, my dad hires me to mow the lawn every 1-2 weeks during the summer. I use it in the fall for picking up leaves with the bagger (as seen in the video) and i use it for mowing the ditch behind our fence. our yard in total (front and back) is about 1 acre. it usually takes 2-3 hours depending on how good of a job i do. Its been a reliable old thing and i like it a lot. Its quite nice to for it to be mine because it gets me a refined sense of owning something with an engine. Its hard to explain. Anyway, heres a Video i decided to make today when i got it out.

Need to keep trying to sell your service. Sometimes it takes longer. Find some nice old lady and start there. Then build off of that. Looks like a nice mower. Way to small for me. I got a 6' cutting deck. I cut 2+ acres in about 45 mins.

I'd hire you. About 2 acres to mow and not a mowing service around.
