I once had an obvious junkie come to my door with a chain saw. I paid him cash to cut down a dying birch tree. Win-win.

So a guy is looking to make some money, knocks on a guys door who gets all upset that someone would knock on his door, chases the chainsaw guy off and the chainsaw guy gets arrested?

It is not generally necessary to brandish the tools of the trade when soliciting customers.  Anyone interested but skeptical will ask to see one's kit, anyone not interested will find the brazen behavior to be intimidating.

If you do it long enough you'll need daily medication just to function it's really hard  and dangerous work.

You should see these guys climb a palm tree to trim it. You gotta be a little crazy.

So I guess you would be scared of a kid pushing a lawnmower down the sidewalk or carrying a show shovel?

This guy hopped up a ladder with his chainsaw running in one hand. I seriously thought he might self-decapitate on my front lawn. Especially because he was twitchy. But he ended up with just one minor bleeding wound. I suppose the subsequent fix was worth it.

In all seriousness, as that kid who mowed lawns for $20/yard over thirty years ago, as I solicited for work I left the lawnmower on the sidewalk with the oversized garbage can balanced on top when I walked up to a given front door.  They could see from the door that I was equipped to do the job,but I wasn't treading excess yard clippings or anything else onto their property until they agreed to having the yard mowed.

For paraphernalia. Not even for anything related to the chainsaw.

You got 20 bucks a lawn in the 90s?

Seems like it was assault on the guy with the chainsaw, not the other way around.

Yeah.  The bulk of the neighbors were the first generation of owners in the neighborhood, with only a few young families as the second-generation.  Lots of older folks that didn't like mowing their lawns themelves.  For $5 worth of gas and maybe a buck in 45 gallon trashbags I could make some decent money to feed my NES and Genesis habits.

Times are tough.   We have a couple guys who come around every weekend looking to mow lawns or anything else you might need.   I give them a couple bottles of water and send them on down the street.   One guy rides his Dixie Cutter up and down the streets looking for work.   He gets plenty of it.  It's a real nice mower.

I had a hunch someone would mention that.

I have used chainsaws before, but I would love to try out a brush saw sometime...looks like fun.
