I'm actually sitting waiting at the dealer right now for my grandstand... they're putting a stripe kit on it. Just got them in yesterday. Can't wait to use it and see how it does... hope it worth the extra $$

AMAZING, it is so much easier and there is no other documentation you need, it has billing, invoicing, bills payable, recipt info, expenditures, cost speadsheets for materials, and a perfect setup on the mac. I wish i had a PC though, like a nice sony or a dell, im not liking that i cant right click anything on my macbook.
How is the grandstand, i was going to get the exmark vantage 48" but i couldnt justify a 8000 dollars 48" mower and the upgrade from a 48 - 52 - 60 was huge. How much was your striping kit, i would of ordered it myself off ebay(like i did) the install is a piece of cake, two bolts and your ready to go. My striping kit is the reason i grew so much, i marketed the "get your lawn looking like a golf coarse" i filll in spots, hire out a fert company to make it greener and less weeds, and then lay down some stright proffessional checkers and diamonds.
This year was a huge growth, mainly because of referals but i also handed out close to 10,000 fliers(which sucked and we had shitty weather to do it in to, in late feburary) i beat all the other companys by like 4 weeks so everyone who called said they held onto the first company's (mine) and called when they needed services. Also, i had my brothers baseball and hockey coaches all want my services and my brothers team mates parents all hired me too, i got about 15 lawns with just that and they are the big lawns.
hope the striping kit works as good as it does for me, for you . good luck this season
