Getting back in the business...

O.K. so I have decided to get back in the lawncare business but this time I want to do it different. I had 35 accounts for 3 years about 8 years ago. I bought 20 accounts, a 36 Lesco Hydro walk behind, and two commercial 21 Lawnboys from a coworker and got the other 15 accounts by word of mouth. Learned the hard way not to buy accounts or start out with debt. The good news is when I got out of the business I was able to sell the accounts and equipment.This time I want to start from scratch and build it myself. My dilema is I don't have alot of money to buy equipment and I want to go after bigger yards than I had before (1/2 acre and bigger). Would it be possible to get these accounts with smaller equipment like 21 commercial mowers or do most customers like the look a larger walk behind leaves.
