Hey guys, just trying to contribute to the forum by posting some of my new purchases. First of all some of you might say why completely overhaul my business with all new equipment. I have been in business for about fourteen years and most of my current equipment is about 8 years old, so I thought about treating myself to some new equipment. First, what I sold is a 6 year old Great Dane Surfer and Grass Gobbler for $2850. I am also selling an ECHO PB 6000 backpack blower and ECHO SRM 3800 line trimmer (not sold yet). Now for the new purchases, I bought a 2004 Toro Z-500 (with filter minder and striping kit) I also bought the large Accelerator baggerat the same time for $8200 and some change. I also purchased the three place trimmer-trap and backpack bracket for about $180 total. I used to lay my equipment on the trailer floor but the new mower takes up too much room and I didnt want to damage them. I also bought a new ECHO PB 750 and an ECHO SRM 260s. An now for the grand finale I also bought a gator-ator for spring aerations. Unfortunately, mowing season in the Chicago area is almost over except for fall cleanups and a little more leaves on the ground. I feel like a kid at Christmas time who cant open his presents till spring. This is going to be a long off season for sure. Fortunately I have Lawn-site to lean on when I get bored. My fiance thinks I am having an affair through the computer because of how much time I spend on it. If she only knew!!! Keep those great posts coming!!
