In 1994 i started with a box store 22 push mower with 8 lawns,95 i moved up to a snapper 21 push mower with 22 lawns then 96 moved up to a snapper 21 self propelled mower with 28 lawns in 97 hired a helper with two snapper self propelled mowers for 35 lawns in 98 helper left then i bought a new toro 36 belt drive for about 2,999.00 then in 2000 bought a bobcat 48 belt drive.2001 bought a 36 bobcat belt drive and sold my toro for 1,800 that money went towards a 2002 48 hydro bobcat and sold my 48 belt drive for 2,200 and that money went to buy an 36 snapper hydro in 2003 sold my bobcat 36 belt drive for 1,350 that money went to a 2008 snapper 48 floating deck hydro for 3,999 so the moral of the story use quality equipment to do a good job. All this equipment was paid for with cash no loans it took time but it worked out well i now have about 90 clients and 45,000 worth of equipment all paid for cash so build slowly and don't stress out with a loan if mower breaks then your pay for something that not generating cash flow also try and have two of everything then there no down time, take it slow make good financial decision's you will be better off in the long run you have to crawl before you can walk good luck have a safe season
