Ok guys, I plan on starting out with a small mowing business in the Spring of 05. I'm looking to grow my business in future to include landscaping, snow removal, etc. Heres the plan $1500 for a used commercial 38"-52" walk behind $ 200 on a 21 inch push mower $ 300 on a good blower (echo?) $ 150 on a weed eater (again, echo?) $ 800 on a 6.5' x 12' trailer for equipment $ 100 month on rental of a storage garage $ 50 on some gas tanks I'm looking at starting up for around $3500 including some business cards and accounting software. I want to run the business going into any debt, so I plan on starting small, spending the next 6 months or so doing research, getting about 10 accounts in the spring and learning on the job for a while. I've already got my first 4 accounts for next year, and they're all next to rental houses next door to each other. You guys think a 97' S-10 with a 4 cylinder is going to pull a loaded 12 foot trailer?
