I was in Charlotte 2 weeks ago. Went to IKEA. But on the drive down, from Salisbury to IKEA, nearly 100 LCO's, be them legit or not, that's alot of mowers on trailers. Drive up to Mooresville or Davidson and pick a gas station to sit at for 20 minutes and look at all the LCO's in the area. The area is SUPER saturated. If you want to take the plunge then no one here can stop you. But I wouldn't this season. The market shares just aren't what they were 10 years ago.
And follow ALLPro's advice. License, Insurance! Don't spray unless you get your license. Ive seen WAY to much of the illegal spraying going on this year. Check the NCDA&CS website to get the schedule. There is a Pesticide Applicator Exam taking place May 7th. Ill be there to get more continuing edu credits.
Food for thought. If you wanna talk business, feel free to PM me and ill give ya my number.
