    well not entirely true. you would still have to work. you just wouldn't be getting paid. you'd have to build a house yourself, cut firewood to stay warm, skin a deere so you could eat, plant a garden, etc.

    Because if it weren't for financing most of us wouldn't spend $20,000-$40,000 on a truck.

    A 40 k truck costs 40 k whether you pay cash or finance at 0 percent. If someone is buying more than they can afford, they haven't been tricked, theyre an idiot. And since when can you buy a new truck for 20 grand?

    Right this is what I'm saying. If I restrict myself personally to cash, I'm only buying for around 10k. If I'm financing, I'm more likely to go for a more expensive item. And I don't know where you can get a new truck for 20k! Lol.

    I meant new to me ;-)

    Again this is all opinion and personal experiences.

    my truck was 20k tax and all brand new. payments of $350 a month.

    you don't need a 40k diesel truck to mow grass. that's complete overkill.

    i know this is where everyone goes off about how they pull bulldozers on flat bed trailers and do snow removal and yadda yadda yadda. none of that is lawn care. it's a different area altogether. construction and snow plowing are not the same thing as cutting grass. just because you cut grass too doesn't make it part of the same industry. just clairifying that. not all of us do snow removal or construction or hardscaping jobs.

    even if you are doing a complete lawn renovation the place where you buy the grass will deliver it to the site for you.
