Getting out of the business. Everything sold as a package deal.

2007 Exmark 60" rider with collection system. ~400 hrs.

48" Exmark. Approx 5 years old.

GNC ride on spreader/sprayer

100gal fiberglass skid tank - 5hp honda motor


--All equipment in storage out of weather. Maintained very well.

************************************************** *******************

I do NOT want to part this out because I'm moving out of state and don't want to deal with 1000 phone calls for a leaf blower. So do not contact me to make an offer on the lawn mower or something. If you live in my area, I'll give you a list of all my customers too. Take em if you want. Grosses ~100K.


I want 32K for everything. Bank Check.

I'll take 27K FIRM if you come up with cash.


No tire kickers. Don't waste my time and show up just to "talk shop". My zipcode is 06450 if you want to calculate distance for travel. Call me at 203-464-9830 if you are serious. All equipment will be available AFTER my cancellation notice to my customers has matured (date not determined, but within 4-6 weeks). If you want the customers, better hurry so I can put a good word in for you.

Pictures will be sent via email upon request.

Thanks.

sounds like a very fair deal, why would you not sign the customers up for another year and sell the route? good luck

mkroher
01-24-2008, 12:36 PM
My main concern is to get rid of all the equipment. Anyone can get lawn customers, so I don't see why I should get any money for them.

if you decide to split it up let me know prices. im interested in the trailer, and possibly in the giantvac.

mkroher
01-24-2008, 04:24 PM
speaking of the giantvac... i also have a leaf box for the truck.. comes apart for easy storage.

of course...also mounting hardware for the truck to put the leafvac on.

100,000 in lawns would be worth somewhere between 50-75k.....Why would you pass that up?

The lawns are the most valuable part of the deal

mkroher
01-24-2008, 09:59 PM
because, i personally wouldn't pay for a lawn account.

and finding a buyer for that would take more time. I dont' have the time, since I'm giving my contracts a notice very shortly, probably tomorrow.

a few years ago? no.. last summer. I got many people interested, but all just blowing smoke up my ass. This time I'm moving, so I'm sacrificing by just selling equipment at great prices.

Truck not included, I'll take 13K cash for ALL equipment. Surely you realize what type of deal this is. The 60" ZTR was bought for $11,700 last May! I may be stupid for letting my equipment go for that price, but I have more important goals that I am pursuing, and I just need to get rid of the stuff. Time to move on.

How much for all the equipment BUT the fert. stuff?

Still 13K. If you came and bought everything BUT the fert stuff, I'd still throw it in the back of your truck when you weren't looking. Even my spool of weed whacker thread and my last quart of oil.

I'm moving out of state. I will be home every weekend to visit family. I don't want my weekends to be full of appointments dealing with selling equipment.

I want this to be a "no hassle take everything off my hands it's yours" deal.

Perhaps one could sell the fert stuff on their own after?

i called you today

Yes I know. I have a good friend in the business that wants the accounts also. He says "I owe him one".

Yet I don't think he's capable of handling the work load. He's the type of guy that says "yes" to all work just because it's money. Dangerous if you ask me.

I might just give him my plowing accounts, and the rest to someone else (since it's plowing season, and I need a replacement to care for those accounts by the end of Feb).

Gmgbo
01-29-2008, 11:54 PM
If you are moving at the end of feb. I would be able to have another plow truck up by then to finish the year off. Let me know if that falls through. Im looking to expand out your way some.

02-01-2008, 05:00 PM
Update. My father wants the 60" turf tracer for his own property. (It's going to be fun to watch him try to use it).

Also, the chemical stuff might be sold (I think).. unless the guy reading this (yes you, I won't mention names :P) just met with me to kick my tires heh.

Under those conditions the price is lowered to 12K. That's still a slamming deal since that's almost the price of a new ztr itself. So to recap:

2007 60" exmark ztr with ultra vac. It's the AS series under 400 hrs. I believe the motor is a 27 or 28 Kawi.

The 48" exmark walk behind. Has the 15HP kawi. Belt drive. Also comes with an aluminum "accelerator" catcher.

Echo 750 backpack blower

Giant vac leaf loader. 16HP vanguard

16' ft open trailer. Tandom axle (has brakes although i never used them). It does not have a landscape gate. I've been using wooden ramps (yes suicidal) since day 1. Whoever buys it can just get a gate welded on.

Whisper jet 8hp brigs push blower.

Echo power head with saw, hedge clippers, and broom attachments

Landscape barrel. (These things aren't cheap)

echo 1500 hedge clippers. 10 years old. never had a reason to replace them.

2 - toro 3650 snow blowers. new paddles and belts.

GNC ride on sprayer/spreader - If you have a permagreen, you wouldn't want this machine. It's still fun to ride on though. I picked it up off of ebay last year, got it running, and spreading fert. I haven't touched the spray feature yet, but the electric pump does work.

do you have a pic of the spreader/sprayer?

Yup. Here's the tank off the machine. It's 1 piece. The markings on it indicates it holds ~16gal.

http://buddyjive.com/gnctank.jpg

Here's the machine, with the tank off. The tank has to come off to really do any work on it. In the picture, I was replacing the alternator, redoing all the wiring, and maintenance on the motor.

How much? No idea. Make me an offer. I need to get rid of it. I won't be insulted with any offer.

So far he's planning on it. he doesn't have his license though, so I'll still have to find someone to do the chemicals.

I'm leaving for DC on sunday. From then on I will only be home on the weekends. And until March 1st, I will be back for snow storms.

Oh... whoever buys my equipment, has to wait for the snow blowers until March 1st. Depending on your location, I'll probably meet you half way to deliver the blowers.

exmark 48" walk behind
aluminum grass catcher

16ft open trailer

Yes NICE truck- If I already didn't have 2 other trucks and my wife wouldn't kill me if I brought it home- It would be mine. The tires were nice + it come with the 9' Fisher and stainless steel sander($3-5K new). It was alittle dirty but what truck isn't during the winter (mine is bad- but that is what you get for being a work truck).
