I already have my license. I will be running a solo opp. Insurance is just a phone call away. I have 2 40" tractor mowers that I know will not work in the long run but might be alright until the yards add up to too many to run that slow. I will be putting my flyers out this Monday cause in Nashville the weather seems like it will only get better (72 high today for 3 days straight). My question is.....I really only have about 2 grand left for start up with the only thing left to buy is the trimmer and a big walkbehind. Since I will be quitting my job (car salesman) to persue this 100%, I want to finance a new walkbehind I found for $3200 + tax (that includes a stripping kit for the high dollar yard option). It is a new 2005 Dixie Chopper 48" with a built in stand deck. I have read alot about starting up with used equipment but I really don't want to spend the last of my cash on the walkbehind, eventhough it is probally the most important piece. Considering my clientel has not built up to REQUIRE it right this very minute, but knowing I will soon need it, am I right to finance it now, or use the tractor mowers until I can pay cash for something used in a month or 2?
