I am 1 hour north of you. Unless you are serious about growing the fert business I don't think a ride on is for you. I think you need at least a 100 accounts to make one worthwhile. I started with a spreader on the back of a lawn tractor and pulled a boom sprayer around. I can do 1 acre of property now with a few obstacles in about 15 to 20 minutes. That is liquid weed control and granular fertilizer. I charge about $150.00 per acre and my minimum charge is $40.00. I hope this helps.

I love my country, but mistrust my government, and the government doesn't create jobs, it just takes my money and gives it to other people or groups it thinks it can bribe.
