Ya after looking at the msrp of $9700 on the mower, that's a good deal. Question is, is he far from you and do you have to take it to him for waranty work? I would suggest getting the grass collection unit and see if he can exchange a trimmer for a good edger.

I have owned trucks whole life. I already had a chevy 2500 and would have it regardless of the business.
I had a JD x300 sold it and bought exmark Metro for what I sold JD for.

Traded a mint 12' aluminum snowmobile trailer for a mint 3500lbs drop axel built trailer w trimmer racks.

I did buy a Husquvarna 223l and BP blower from jackssmallengins. My homeowner trimmer was shot and needed a new one anyway.

I had all the hand tools needed and Husquvarna 350 chainsaw for firewood.

I'd say $300 for the blower and $220 for a Packem grass catcher as well as $300 for a Echo HT 152 hedge trimmer all of which I had jobs for prior to buying.

First set up was spring 2003

Truck 98 ram cost $14,000
Trailer custom built 2003 cost $4,000
2003 Lazerz with trac vac $10,000
2003 Metro wb with velky and side bagger $3,500
2003 2 br400s and 2 shin 231s $1,250
gas cans tool box $150

So $32,900

What a difference a decade makes now my 2 fleet trucks cost $60,000 and $65,000 apiece.
