Sure, a larger business means bigger profits but it also means bigger headaches. Take my operation, for instance. On any given day, were running 8 mowers at more than 40 locations across a 120-square-mile area, so logistics alone is challenging enough. Add staffing, scheduling and maintenance into the equation, and youre looking at enough variables to make Einstein recheck his figures. And when youve got a mower or two down for repair, its even more complicated. Thats why I started buying Grasshopper mowers a few years back. They just keep running, no matter what. And theyre designed to cut maintenance just as well as they cut grass, which believe me my crews appreciate after a long day. Since were running diesel mowers, they also save us thousands of dollars a year in fuel costs. And I dont know any businessman who wouldnt welcome adding a chunk of change that size to his bottom line. After all, running a business on this scale has enough headaches. At least now, my equipment isnt one of them. Talk about a pain reliever.
