    Does $35,000 sound too high for 110 residental accounts. The accounts are very, very tight. He spends $75 a week on gas for everything. Takes a 3 man crew less than 30 hours a week to mow. He will gross 75K this year. His prices are on the low side and I think that based on the market could easily be raised 15% without losing customers.
    I am thinking of buying this to help start my 2nd crew next season. We are maxed on one crew and will need to start second crew next year.
