    I'm planning to start my own business SOON!!!
    I was looking around for some equipment and I saw this 1 in an eXmark local dealer...

    Exmark (W/B) METRO 36" 12.5 HP Kawasaki, costom build trailer 5'x10' Shindaiwa trimmer, edger, hedgetrimmer and blower, trimmers rack & blower rack; Package Assembly. All for $4,888.00

    Is this a good deal for a starter that will do (for now) residential lawns?:confused:

    This looks like a nice package. The price seems to be about what it would cost if you put it together yourself ,except for a couple of unknowns (model #'s and the trailer). It's nice being packaged for the new guy. I just bought a Exmark Metro and have to get some smaller stuff. This package would have been nice ,and the monthly price for everything would be convenient (again not sure of the terms). I would suggest you price everything separately and make sure of the terms (if you're using the $150 per month deal). Good luck.
