got a deal

Well guys I'm new to the site but am already hooked. Heres some info. about me. I'm 20 but been doing lawncare for over 5 years now. For the last two years I've been running a company with a 100+ lawns a wk. Also I am head of lawn maintence at a trailor park and have been there for over 4 years. Also in the winter time me and my dad do snow plow contracts for verizon phone company, so I have alittle bit of expirence. Anyway this year I got tired of running the company watching the owner sit back and relax. The other day I came across a deal that I couldnt pass up and am currently setting up my own business this winter for the spring time. Tell me what your guys think.
Wright 36, 52 with bagger
Shindaiwa T231x Weed wacker,LE261 Edger, Eb8510RT blower
Ringo 6x12 enclosed trailor
The 36 has 7 hours on it and the 52 has 27 hours.


Having fun on my new toy


Oh yea I forgot to mention that I picked everything up for $12,500. I think it was a good buy.

You can't fool me when it comes to a good deal, all the bling bling in the world hardly phases me with all the folks who overprice everything nowadays.

But, that is a good deal
A darn good one if I might add, I doubt you paid a dime too much.

You want to sell the 36? From what I hear you boys in Jersey only mow larger 2-3 acre properties.
