    Like 32V has said, but to put it more bluntly, who gives a s**t what the other guy paid. Why is she calling you now then if she had it so good? Either that $140 guy went belly up or he was doing crap work. Yeah, that little old nice lady or whoever it is in the future...She's trying to lowball you down more or less.
    Dont sell yourself short on equipment. A 36 is fine. I used a 36 and 48 for years for a larger LCO I worked for and we banged out lawns, large and small.
    Get what you need to get and if potential customer declines, move down the street to the next one. But if you do get what you want...make sure you deliver and dont give them a crappy product or she will be moving on.

    This is mostly all that matters.
