You are joking right? I have a idea that you are pulling legs here.
Just in case you are serious, the way to go is to get a loan for the
Exmark and finance the blower, trimmer and edger. Now please explain the difference between taking out a loan to buy equipment or financing it.

If a dealer is willing to finance you, why not just put all your purchases on one loan through the dealer instead of getting another loan for blower, trimmer and, edger. You should be able to save on interest with just one loan as appose to two serarate. I think that's right anyway.

CJ, The best thing I can think for a young business man like yourself is to go to DaveRamsey.com. His radio show may even be broadcast in your area as he is out of Nashville. Listen for just one hour to the show and let me know what you think.

There are many opinions on using debt as a tool in business and personal life. I think you will find Dave's position interesting. He also has several books including FINANCIAL PEACE.

Good Luck, Landscraper.
