I assume you want to be able to purchase new equipment for cash over the years and you're asking about a savings fund for that?

You're a solo guy...if your route is tight I'd say your break down should be...

50% your pay
25% expenses (gas, ins., trimmer line, oil, etc, advert,break downs)
25% savings

So, lets say you bill 5k/mth

Your pay is 2500
1250 expenses
1250 savings

That savings may be a bit high as you wont need new stuff every dang year...so you can tweak that
