All that I will say against your post is that maybe your geographic are in the great lakes has a lot of large accounts, that first timers can get a hand on but more likely you won't get those big jobs. To buy a 36, 52, 72 and equipment your talking about $20k easily.
Actually, I am nowhere near the great lakes area. I am Illinois, but I am only a 20 minute drive from St. Louis Missouri. However, that is an excellent observation and I am taking the location and average yard size in my town into consideration to a great extent.
