Greetings from central NJ

Hello everyone!

My name is Paul and I have been mowing grass since the age of 11 when I asked my dad if I could do it. There were a few stump and rock strikes in the beginning and I didn't have clue what striping was but my dad was patient and let me figure it out. I think he hated mowing and was so happy the day I volunteered!

During college summers I worked at a golf course and had a blast. In year #1 my job was trimming around all the trees, bunkers and rocks and push mowing the pond banks. By year #4 I was reel mowing the rough with a 72" wide National reel mower and the tees with a Jacobsen Greens King IV(?) reel mower. That was a great job with nice, helpful employees and I'll never forget it

30 years later I still enjoy lawn mowing ans snow removal. Have never paid anyone to do it. Its a great way to relieve stress and as long as I am physically able it will never end.

Here's a few videos of me in action:


tried a Stander before the Snapper but it wasnt for me


Love plowing with this Craftsman FF20

Hey fellas!

There is no snow to melt. This will be the fourth year in a row without a blizzard!

And thus my enthusiasm for snowblowers has dried up too
