If thats what you can afford at this time, OK. If you can I would get more commercial line of mower and blower.

tell us more about your accounts. That will help us tell you what you might need. I would def. at least start with a 36 h/d. I had help getting started but i started with nice commercial stuff. I was lucky.

if you can afford it........... 36" belt wb, i would highly recomend a bob cat with a kawi 15 horse v-twin, absoutly beautyful cut!!! Also, Redmax, Echo, or Stihl weed wacker. And ONLY a Redmax 7001 or 8000, the best most powerful blowers on the market.

Either this is some sort of joke or chambers is flat out of his tree. Starting a lawn service at the end of August or later? If you're serious, you're throwing money away. Wait for next year. Otherwise, just post this at www.WhatALousyJoke.com.

Use the spell check, and just buy what you can afford. Thats how most of us started.

And if you are going to hang around here, you will have to get used to being given a hard time. i mean shoot, they make fun of my $6k mower, just because it is not red.

Hang in there.

gil.if your serious first thing slow down with your typing reread what your typing.when you say your lawn business will interfer with your beer budget then you just opened yourself up to abuse.most of the people here are professionals we help each other out 24-7...i've been in the business almost 20 years and i still learn new tricks here...

A keyboard has nothing to do with intelligence but intelligence has everything to do with proper spelling and grammer. Every time I speak with someone, I choose my words and the way I present them very carefully. You will never have a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression.

Good luck with everything.

Gil, despite my earlier nastiness, I think you're better off waiting until next year. Trying to ramp up in this business at the end of July is a good way to incur a lot of expense with little prospect of a black-ink balance sheet at year's end, even in Florida.

As for used equipment, one thing to bear in mind is that anything that goes off-line during the week costs money and you have to very carefully calculate whether it's economically rational to opt for used equipment. As backup equipment, that's great, but as primary mowing stock, I'd be leery of buying used mowers.
