Yeah man, it sounds like he only wanted the money without doing the work, and that bobcat sounds like a real good deal.

some pics of the metro i picked up today and the yard i had to finish cutting when the other mower broke. They didnt really care about the leaves, just told me to cut em up but after thinking about it after i left im going back tomorrow real quick and just blowing them into the woods. Overall the metro isnt bad cut nice for its age its a 1997 with around 500hrs on it. It was my uncles and at first i was thinking of trading it for a rider but i might just pay for the rider out of pocket and keep em both. Got a busy week ahead of me

Looks good, and if you can afford to buy a rider without trading in the metro that's what I would do three reasons (1) so that way you always have a backup just in case the rider goes down(2) I don't think you'll really get what the metro is really worth just because the dealer that you trade it in to will need to sell it for a profit(3) if you get real backed up and need to have someone help you out with the mowing your setup for it also.

Another day another broken mower I have no idea what i have done to the landscaping gods but the metro today doesnt want to run once i engage the blades but i did get some new stihl equipment. I borrow my friends scag to finish my last 2 yards. Getting a new mower Wendsday a 2008 Exmark Lazer 60in 25hp Koehler and 778hrs and a bigger trailer a Big Tex 70R i think its called if remember but its a 83in by 14ft with high sides and a basket. my parents said there gonna help giving the problem with my friend and then this mower breaking. All together ill spend about 6500 or so and will be paying 600 month to them. Although i know alot of people on here batter people who get parents help, i think its a better option than a loan from a bank. The stihl equipment is a FS 110R and a BR600. The last one is me from 2 summers ago in my nice suit we have to wear at one of our contracts im on the left

Yeah Scags are awesome!

And there is nothing at all wrong with a helping hand from your parents, I understand your logic completely.

New gear looks good, and I hope your luck with mowers turns around at least you have good friends and family and theirs nothing wrong getting some help from your parents that way you can avoid paying interest on a loan from a bank as long as your paying them back like you say your going to, and only having to make payments for about 11 moths is bad at all.
