I have the opportunity to purchase a $60,000 year business, not $85,000 like the guy claims. I verified the numbers and I think I may buy into it. However, the situation is that he claims him and another guy tally up 43 hours between the two of them to service these accounts. Both were experienced in the field. BUT, they were using 52" walkbehinds without velkes that were from like 1985. He has a good amount of larger size lawns as well. So, my question to you is this. How much time might I add to this 43 hours if I took over this business? I have a brand new 52" lazer Z and I swear I'm a master with all my equipment. I have to do something quick. I'll by a flex deck to add on as well to cut time if I have to. But the simple fact that my GM job is shipping over to India is another reason I need to think about doing this FULL time. Also, I have part time help readily available. Do you think this can be done with 1 man? And if so, what should my time increase by? I think I can match them or add about 5-10 mins each to their times because the lack of manpower in the trimming/edging department. But my mower would blow them away in the cutting. Suggestions and ideas please, this is urgent. Thanks How much productivity with that extra man?
