IM 13 and im looking to move up in equipment... I dont want to spend really any more than 2k. So im looking for used stuff. My neighbor down the street has a 38" timecutter z from toro that he will sell me for $1700 Its pretty much new (there is an off chance that I can talk him into working for it by doing his yard who he hires out for $55 each time. The people he has now have been doing a pretty bad job lately) But this mower doesnt even have anti scalp wheels or anything so Im kinda worried about that. Right now I have a 21" john deere and a 42" troy-bilt super bronco those are my 2 main mowers. My clients are starting to want more, because im increasing their prices in order to stay in business I was a BAD scrub not Im almost a boarderline scrub. I do very nice work with the stuff I have (I get most clients from "drive-bys") but im picking up more clients and I need something that will save me time. I have like 6 or 7 yards a week that I do and for most of them anything over 50" would really be over kill. So sould I get the homeowner Z from my neighbor ?? Or should I look for a used w/b like a scag, proline, or something?? I would need something that does have pretty much zero turning capabilities because people are starting to demand stripes.
