just mowing for a living possible ?

Hello to everybody,

I found this forum when looking for lawnmower reviews.

I've bought a Hayter 41, 70 years limited edition new in the end, its only to used on one domestic property and in the dry. I've tried it once so far. I like that it's british made and was a bargain. I've worked in grounds care on and off some 24 years in total, my favorite aspect of this has always been mowing, never been able to fathom why just love to mow. I had my first real mower at the age of 10, a used sufffolk colt as a birthday present, my dad was so pleased to buy me that present. A few changes in my work/personel life and probably just mid life its self, has made me yearn for my own personel mowing round and thats the 64 thousand dollar question. I would like to ask is it possible to make a living, just mow strim and blow on domestic properties, nothing else except winter hedge/schrub trimming or is that like a lot of mid life ideas and just dream land.

                • Agree. Solid simple height adjust, though I'd like it to have a higher setting than it does. Drive feels good, not snatchy like Hondas. No obvious bendy or rattly bits. The engine is a smooth operator, very nice starter. I just need to try and remember to sharpen and clean it out weekly to keep it working well.

                    Hey Dan

                    Something not related to this thread though still kind of relevant... Thanks for posting about the high lift blade for the roller Kaaz. Mine is like a different mower in the wet now :) Thanks for the tip!

                      What's your existing blade like - solid or perforated ?

                      The existing blade is the original it's got a few holes in the small wing bits!! Does that help?!

                      This is what I'd call the "high lift" blade (note blade is solid with distinct full wings);
