Well.....you really dont need a $50k truck for mowing a 15,000 square foot lawn. This can be done with a Ford Ranger with the bed removed and a small flatbed installed.

So no trailer needed.

$17K for 2 mowers?? Thats ridiculous for residential. There are ways to own mowers for far far far less.

Lawn guys have no idea how to keep overhead as low as possible. They buy big trucks, they use big trailers and big mowers. And they mow a lawn on the east side of town, then load the equipment and travel over to the west side of town to cut another lawn. Very foolish. And not seeing the big picture.
