    If you were to start a new lawnmower sales/service type business what name brands of equipment and what kind of equipment would you want to have in your showroom? What would be a rough estimate to start from scratch. (Building,ZTRs,parts,insurance,employees, 2 cycle equip,advertising,some homeowner stuff, etc.) I know there is more to it but just want to see what is popular and what people would want to sell/service.

    if you are going to have shop and still have mowing service, then prolly whatever brands you use in mowing you should sell or service. mfgs usually require you to stock so much value worth of parts plus so many units. plus you got tools and classes to become certified by each mfg for repairs. even a small shop you should plan on having at least $250k to start with unless you do repairs only and no sales like we do.
