    your being smart. starting with low overhead gear. good job going used with a simpler machine (belt drive=low maintenance=low costs) that setup should serve you well for a year or two, depending on how you grow.

    your gonna make more cash than those who go out and buy new ztrs right out of the gate.
    congrats, and your work looks pretty good.

    Thanks! so far i've put roughly $700 into the buisness. My friends soon to be brother in law went out and spent about 9 grand on a Scag ztr, new trailer, and equiptment. Thats not bad if you have a bunch of buisness, but its gunna take a while to pay off.

    Looks good. Thats all the equipment i started with. I made a lot of money. I just paid 28,000$ for a few new mowers, so im in debt. lol. But with around 100 lawns to service 3 days out of the week and landscaping 3 days a week, it should pay off. Good luck this season.
