Dang, I'd go under in a week charging that. Few guys in Elgin do that as we'll. Some guy bought bout 40k in equipment and advertised everywhere $25 maintenance. Non the less he got out in 3 or 4 months and sold everything. I should have bought one of his new exmarks lol. But can't complain, I have enough people who choose quality over price. Are you in maintenance or landscaping or both?
