Started with a Honda HRR from 2006, and a 27 year old Echo trimmer. Still like those brands (a lot!). I charge by the cut.

I started a company and want to rapidly expand into Lawn Cutting this summer. As with snow removal, I want to gain customers and offer them incentive to make the switch to my company, but it needs to be more strategic than that.
