    I would like to throw out this scenario and you guys tell me what you think. I live near Fouts Brothers they are one of the largest dealers for UD, Isuzu, GMC in the US, they are also a husqvarna dealer. They have a deal going right now where you get an Isuzu NPR landscape body or enclosed box, you pick, with dove tail gate, 48inch walkbehind, backpack blower, String trimmer, and hedge trimmer. They will allow you to choose different equipment if the items above are not what you need. The truck is a 4 year lease and the equipment is yours at signing. The magic number is 499.00 a month. 25000 miles a year on the truck, and you pay the first and last payment up front. The truck is brand new. How many people lease their trucks like an NPR and does it make sense, since you can get a new one at the end of the lease.

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    After 4 years you have paid in $25,000 and have a few thousand dollars in equipment....doesn't sound like a good deal to me.
