That lawn that you're only cutting once a month will probably be COSTING YOU money to cut by the time you bag all that grass!!! Especially since you're only getting $13.46 cut.

Have fun.

CJIII, this post isn't a slam, it's just the truth.
You could probably get outfitted for $2k if you're just going to do this part time and the factors of time spent on site, quality of cut, power and durability of equipment aren't a factor to you.
What Bobby said about a solo operation running in the neighborhood of $20k is right on. But the sad fact is that you won't be able to get commercially outfitted fo $2k.
You may try looking for a local LCO that is willing to sell some of his equipment at a deal.

CJ follow what hoss said. Buy a good wb and and go from there. If you start off cheap you like most of us when we first started
you will regret it because you will find as soon as you make the money you have to buy better stuff to make your job easier or
you will be out of business.
Cheapcuts that doesn't sound like a good deal to me. First the equipment isn't worth much and 175 a week thats not a business.
You could try and start out on your own and be ahead.
