Good idea. I'd ditch the S10 and stick with the F150. It will hold up much better and your mileage will be that different.

Sorry, I was thinking of the Toro Timemaster. The Exmark Commercial 30 is very similar to the Toro Turrfmaster. I didn't realize that Toro came out with a commercial version.

Doesn't toro own exmark? They look to be nearly identical.

I run a setup much like that, only my lots are suburbarn and very small, I doubt any are over 1/4 acre, but I'm not sure, they generally take 30min or less and and are within a few minutes of each other. I run solo and can do anywhere from 12-18 in a day, some are gardening but most are just cutting, I would stick with the fullsize truck, you need and 8ft bed for this to work best, an s10 just seems too small, and the milage wouldnt be much more, plus its nice to have a handheld and a backpack blower, plus 2 trimmers and 2 mowers in case one starts acting up or you break a wheel or something stupid that shuts you down. Just my thoughts.

I personally do not like your your concept but if that is your plan then this is the problem with it. Way to much grass on acre lawns for equipment this small you need to be targeting accounts under 10000 sq ft preferably under 5000 sq ft. If you have lawns that small in your area great go for this plan if not you need to modify it.
