Tell them you will only do it if you can get the contract for 3 yrs. Lease the equipment and factor in the payments so you can make a few bucks. Use the equipment while you have it to seek out other big areas and put somebody on it. I think you could come out ahead and using the $1.00 buyout at the end of the lease you would have another piece of equipment to use for the next 10 years.<p>Just a thought!<p>Homer

You need a bigger piece of equipment for sure.But is it really worth it?Steveair had some good points , waiting on an escort to cross the active runway could be costly , weather could also be a factor .A 100 acres is a lot but if you take the plunge and buy the right equipment and get a good contract that equipment can make money for you for a long time. Keep us posted

<br>You all will be glad to hear that we have ruled out the idea of using our dixie choppers on this. We are in contact with a farmer who has a large tracter and pull behind mower. Not sure yet what type of tracter or deck. Will keep you posted. The farmer has a son (17) who would mow for $250.00 a day. I think we will jump on that if there equipment is right.
