I think the deal will come down to giving the mower a value of $5500. And what some of you that say it's a bad idea don't understand, is that it only takes me 20 mins. to mow his yard. So, I'll mow his yard for 3 yrs (90 total mows) in trade for the mower. Each mow will cost me approx. $20 for labor and gas. So way I figure, I'll have $1800 invested in the mower. Even with depreciation, that's a good deal. Actually, it's a great deal. Also, someone made a comment about why would I want a 72" mower that can't be used on 90% of comm. accts. Well, I don't really know what he's talking about but all my commercial accounts are large properties and a 72" mower and 61" running will really cut down my time. Also, several people said I should buy it outright. Well, why would I want to pay $7200 for something that I can get for $1800 and I want have to put all that cash out of pocket. I'm going to talk to him again this week and I'm going to try to do the deal. I'd be a idiot not to.
