Taking on ALOT of new properties.

I was recently contacted by a local real estate company here and they need someone to mow 50 properties. That someone they called was me, thank god! But I already have 32 accounts already, and I'm already pretty busy. AND I go to college part time also. I really need this amount of income, though, like BAD. They are all pretty close together, some are spaced out, but all pretty much in a general 10 or 15 mile radius.

Should I get more equipment and hire a crew? I was thinking about getting another mower or two to keep up. So that two or three yards can be mowed at the same time.

And also I just need some advice. Because I'm going from 32 properties to 82. Pretty big transition. And this was brought on my plate pretty quickly, so its just got me stressed! Might need to quit going to school. Because the income seems like its worth it.
My set up:
-2007 Chevy 2500hd 8.1l 4x4
-7x18 enclosed trailer
-Grasshopper front mount 61", gravely 52"
-36" Gravely Walkbehind, 21" exmark push mower
-Stihl everything
