yeah but the thing is that I take care of all the 24 HR fitnesses around KC for mowing and they pay regardless of whether it snows or not. Its a contract that would pay the 2 blades off easily.

No body can bash when most of us get loans for mowers.A snow plow is just another piece of equipment that makes money.

Hey now, first of all that plow was on the south side of $6000 not $8000. I lost out on $1000 becuse of my old crappy truck and old crappy plow. Did I want to borrow money? no but I sure didn't have the cash. In the next eight years that thing will pay for it's self many times over. I've been mowing for 22 years and have bought many mowers-some with my money,some with the bank's money. I have never once regretted bowrowing money for equipment. Hey wright-did you get that info we were talking about?

I just do the mowing there but I will let the property management company know that the snow guys are not doing their jobs.

Also wright, if you tell the club manager they will contract the company and let them know. Dont be afraid to say something! They need to know whats going before someone gets hurt.

No problem. Im glad you told me. These guys need to know whats going. I dont know who the company who is doing the snow is but I know they also do 5 other clubs around the city. Hopefully they dont all suck like the Shawnee one.

I couldn't agree more. I bought my Boss V back in 2003 and just put my 1st cutting edge on it this year. It has made us plenty of money over the years and have long since paid of the Sheffield loan we had on it.
