First of all, thank you to everyone who makes the site possible. I've learned alot so far on here by just browsing around. This is my first post so hello to all. I currently am in the process of losing my job. I'm 24, love being outdoors, and have always loved working for my self when I have in the past. I'm considering starting up a residential lawn business. I plan to start small, and grow slowly. Right now I'm looking at equipment and here is what I've come up with. I have roughly 3000 dollars to put into the business. I wouldn't mind taking a small personal loan out if it was absolutly needed. So far I've found a nice 5x10 drop ramp trailer. And a few smaller zero turn mowers. I called on a Dixon ZTR 42" cut today. comes with a bagger. and he has many spare parts for it also. I'm also looking at getting a push mower, weedeater, and edger. Does anyone have any thoughts and opinions to share? I don't plan on busting out a 100 yards this summer, I realize that. I don't want to get into this too deep.
