not so fast, those things are built to last. If it works and cuts good you should keep it till you get maybe 40 or 50 accounts but why drop 4 or 5 grand when you don't have that many accounts. Just my 2cents. Don't know what the circumstances are. I'm 17, I own a walker 48"ghs 20 hp kohler, lesco 36", 2 21's, backpacks etc... If I wasn't so strained for time I prob wouldent have the walker, but maintaining 23 accounts, school and football in no easy task. Good luck with growing your buisness!

- Matt
