OK I'll give you my 2 cents becoase its probably just the opposite of most others. Buy it!! and try to buy a walkbehind also. You will be in debt so you have no choice but to get the work to pay for those machines. I like to call that incentive!!!!! If you don't pay for them you will lose them and be out of biz. so that a pretty good reason to bust your azz to make it work if your sure this is what you want to do.
