Company question

I am currently operating my company with no overhead, truck, trailer, 1 52 inch machine and all equipment other is paid for.

currently mowing 35 accounts a week making all profit except for gas.

I am in need of another machine (48 inch), craigslist seems to be a dud lately.

Should I wait until end of season to purchase a machine? should I just go get something new and get into payments? I am looking for a wright stander or toro grandstand and they are expensive new or used.

Wright usually has some sort of sale in the spring. Toro too for that matter, but as much as I like Toro products I'd get a Wright Stander.
