I am not trying to put you down or anything like that. But to buy two mowers on the hope of 20 to 30 accounts next year is a risk.I would have started with just one. Seeing your in VA beach i would have gotten a smaller rider for gated yards and then if there was enough work a 52 or 60 for open spaces. I wish you the best of luck in your business. Just carry proper insurance and licensing

I agree, even just the grandstand would be enough for 20-30 accounts, I manage 14 and have no problem getting them done 4 hours a day 3 days a week.

I am guessing Dad owns the machines and handles everything otherwise be prepared for the massive bashing on not having insurance
