Husqvarna Lawn Mower – Elite Commercial Machines

Husqvarna lawn mowers are among the best in quality and dependability. You can be assured of the excellence of the Husqvarna name: the company was founded in Sweden in 1689. Not many companies can boast over three hundred years of experience. Husqvarna started with making muskets and progressed through the years to a variety of outdoor equipment, such as mowers, trimmers, chainsaws, riding mowers, snow blowers, and much more. Taking care of your home and your lawn is a commitment that Husqvarna takes seriously. Husqvarna mowers are equal to any challenge and can help you maintain a beautiful and inviting yard.

Husqvarna lawn mowers come in a variety of styles. There are old school manual mowers, gas or diesel-powered push mowers, solar powered robotic mowers, and most popular, the Husqvarna riding mowers. Before you purchase a Husqvarna mower, ask yourself these questions to make sure you select the right one for your needs:

o How big is your lawn and what is the layout? Are there lots of obstacles a mower will have to go around? This will help you determine the proper model of mower you will need, and also if you need a riding mower, garden tractor, and so on.

o How often do you mow your lawn? For instance, if you regularly maintain your lawn, you may find the BioClip method most appropriate. The finely cut trimmings are returned to the lawn for fertilizer. For taller or courser grass, you may want a side or rear ejection model.

o Do you want a manual or automatic gear shift?

o Can you easily find Husqnarva mower parts in your area? Being able to easily and quickly replace a damaged or worn out part is essential. (Although, being able to order parts online makes this much easier).

You can also find accessories for your Husqvarna mower, regardless of the model. There are BioClip plugs, collector bags, seed boxes, bagging kits, trimmer attachments, and more.

Husqvarna has been changing and adapting with the needs of homeowners for more than three centuries, all the while keeping the same quality and value. Husqvarna can keep your lawn looking beautiful and save you a lot of frustration with mowing.

Mow A Better Lawn, The Easy Way

I was schooled, as many of you were, about mowing lawns, that each time you mow the lawn the next time you rotate 90 degrees. If you are extra anal you go for the 45 degree rotation. I was never that anal so I just cut on the 90 and things went well. The people that “schooled me” said that it would make groves in my yard where I ran the mover. And, I believed it. Until I moved into my new house, and I followed suit and started my 90 degree rotation. Well we live on a slope becase of 1. the view and 2. the water drainage problem we had in out previous home (that is another story.)

I mowed the lawn three times. Twice up and down and once side to side. It was
amazing how much easier going across the slope, than going up and down. I spent
the rest of the summer going across the slope. Along with the proper fertilization
and watering. I kept the blade on the mover sharp and What a Beautiful Lawn. The
kids had a ball barefoot and happy.

I am a proponent of push mowers. I think that they mow a better lawn and provide
and provide a chance to get the blood flowing in between exercise sessions.
Working behind a computer as much as I do, that is much needed. I also feel that
they give you more control of the mower than a riding mowers. Not to mention that
they are safer. It also really hacks me off to see some one terribly over weight
mowing a 1/4 acre lot with a riding mower. That is ridiculous! Anyway off my soap
box.

After I am done, if there is any “clumps” I take the leaf blower and disapate them
into the grass. I hate to say it but the more regularly that you mow the less clumps
you will have. Blah, Blah, Blah!

All and all a beautiful lawn is not that difficult. Just some ideas to help you save
some energy for other projects. Just thinking of you.

Just a few options.

Starting a Side Business to Supplement Your Income

There are many ways of earning extra money. In some cases, people lose their jobs and it becomes survival money. All of the ideas that follow offer potentially good opportunities to earn some extra cash. Many are perfect for young people just starting out or looking to do something during their summer vacations.

Volunteering
Work at a place that might have job opportunities for you e.g. a seniors center, hospital, golf course, etc. Meet a lot of people and network. They know people who know people and so on. The volunteering can also be personally enriching. Make suggestions for jobs you see need doing e.g. teaching the elderly how to use a computer.

Garage sales
Recycling and reusing are not dirty words! There is a ton of stuff out on garbage night that could be picked up that is still useful. If cleaned up or slightly repaired it is potentially worth lots of money e.g. picture frames, small furniture, sports equipment, cutlery and dinnerware, glass & pottery, jewelry, books, computer parts, etc. Once you get good at it and know prices, start going to garage sales and buy stuff that can be resold at a higher price at your own regular garage sales or at used goods shops.

Resell to Dealers
Flea market sellers, antique dealers, and consignment stores are only a few of the people who survive on the sale of used goods.

– TV’s that people throw out can be worth about $10-$20 each to repair people who are always on the lookout.
– bikes can be sold to bike repair people and/or used sports equipment dealers. The going rate is anywhere from $10 and up. If they can be fixed at home, they can sell privately. Older “antique” bikes are often highly desirable. Ads in the paper and Buy & Sell type magazines should clear them out quickly for you.
– dehumidifiers and humidifiers can be sold to businesses that repair and sell them. If somebody is handy, it is usually easy to repair many dehumidifiers as the only thing wrong with many of them is a seized motor. A little oil and a few spins and it often works again, no problem. In the summer they sell for about $50-$60 if in good working condition.

Think of all the university student rooms and apartments that need a humidifier in the winter.

Sports Equipment
There is a lot of money in sports equipment. Ice skates, roller blades, snowboards, skateboards, etc. Get familiar with what used goods stores want and buy up newer models at yard/garage sales, estate sales, church rummage sales, etc. Sell them to “Play It Again Sports” stores. It is possible to find them all year for about $2-$10 and you can get $15-$25 or more for them at the stores. It is very easy to build up credits and then buy your own new sports equipment at minimum cost. In many cases, it is also possible to get cash for the equipment. Make sure there are no breaks or missing parts. It has to be flawless for safety reasons.

Door-to-door Selling
Find a product that could easily be sold door to door e.g. economy size boxes of saran wrap, garbage bags, deodorizers, etc. Something small and useful that everybody uses all the time. A novelty toy sold to kids in tourist districts is good too. Be alert and cautious when doing this!

Used Paperbacks and Novels
Check with used book dealers first to see how much they pay for them – usually from 25 cents and up. Also find out which books they find most desirable. Go to garage sales and buy them for about 10-15 cents each or cheaper. Some dealers also sell old magazines. Again, first find out which ones are most desirable. Check out garage sales and especially rummage sales at churches or schools for books. Although small, profit can be at least 50% or better.

Yard Work
If you have fairly good tools, cut lawns, rake areas, etc. Gotta do a good job though!!

Useful Services
Look for needs in parking lots, parks, busy streets, in grocery stores, etc. Walking dogs, watering plants regularly in somebody’s yard, doing the edge trimming work around lawns ((I’m sure there are people who dislike that job as much as I do and would pay a kid to do it) One young girl was paid $15/hr to watch a company machine seal envelopes. They couldn’t afford to not have anybody there if it jammed.

Garage Door Art
Imagine all the plain, unattractive “canvasses” attached to almost every house just waiting to be covered. Offer to put on large house numbers, pleasant abstract patterns or landscapes. Match or extend the painting to a nearby garden or walkway. With a few cans of paint, brushes and imagination, you can be making $100 or more per garage door.

Porch Rail Painting
Ever notice all the rusty porch railings in your neighborhood? With minimum investment of a few basic colors of rust-proof paint, a wire brush, metal sandpaper and some good small hairy roller brushes, you could make a lot of money sprucing them up.

As you read through the article, there will be triggers for other ideas. if you can’t use them, pass them on to others.
