Maintenance Schedules/Costs

Hello all,

Before you beat me up, I did a search and could not find what I was looking for. Is there a rough percentage of your income that you dedicate to maintenance? I know that it will depend on the type and amount of equipment you have running, So lets say a 52" ZTR, walk behind, and hand tools (weedeater, blower, edger). How much would you put away from your net income for maintenance? I am thinking 1/3 for uncle sam and operating, 1/3 back to the business for maintenance, making it grow, and replacements, and 1/3 for me (single person operation). Am I way off?

Just to be fair I have not jumped off the cliff yet, trying to figure operating cost into my business plan.

Personal owners income is taken out BEFORE net.

Maintenance as well.

REINVESTING in the company (like new equipment, expansion, additions etc) comes out of net.
