What prompted you to get into this business segment? How did you go about booking work - did you pre book prior to investing in equipment, OR did you just go all in and bought stuff hoping the work would come around? How did you market the service?
While delivering a customer 5 yards of compost he asked me if I knew of a better way to spread it over turf than his method of a wagon & shovel. That's when I started researching this whole world of equipment. I've owned 3 Turfco Mete-R-Matics & still have 2 & also have the Eco-Lawn 100. Go with the Eco like Rick suggested & you'll be fine so as long as you can keep the moisture content down. Too much & it will be an overweight headache. I've posted much on this in the past if you know of a way to scour thru my posts.
