Any recommendation would be helpful.
Congrats on your new account. How many other accounts do you have? Planning on staying in the business for a few years? How many accounts do you hope for in five years? Is this business your nestegg?
If you are serious about lawn apps for the future, I sure hope you do not rely upon "hack job" pieces of equipment. I suggest a versatile machine so you can use it on most of your properties.
There's a unit out there that does exactly what you are wanting (one of these units brought in nearly $200,000 for me in 2013 >> One person, one guy, one pickup truck). Learning curve -- only about 2 or 3 days.
If you are serious, please buy quality (I finally learned my lesson with the Exmark 30" stand-on aerator).
Best of luck,
