Ideas on a smaller rig for more populated tight areas while getting into bigger jobs

The area I started landscaping in and still operate out of has a lot of properties closer together. This makes it pretty difficult to get larger equipment trucks mowers etc. in for parking and traveling down tight streets.

I'm at the point where I definitely need to start getting some bigger equipment for new accounts and existing larger ones. At the same time I don't want to completely switch over replacing everything and lose the smaller accounts because I can't get to them easily with new gear. On the other hand its costly to just get a whole additional rig operational without selling some of the stuff I have now.

The smaller accounts are less profitable but I like the steady income and good customers I've had for a while, and don't like the idea of dropping clients. Currently I'm using SRW Pickup and a 12' Enclosed. Its decent for the small tighter areas but could definitely use bigger application on some larger accounts and any potential new ones.

Just curious if many of you guys out there have similar situations and run two operations one set up for the smaller outfits in tighter more populated areas and others rigs for bigger residences and commercial? If so I'm all ears for any ideas and possible setups you may run thanks
