A little background on the company first. Owned by my cousin for 6 years Cuts approximatly 15 yards/ week Three Commercial properties totaling ~1200/ month No contracts signed with any customers All equipment is less than 1 year old Equipment includes 60" Hustler Super Z w/ kohler engine Dr. Trimmer Mower WB Mower (not sure of brand) Shindawa 4 stroke trimmer Shindawa 2 stroke trimmer Edger (once again not sure of brand) Sthil Backpack blower x 2 Now that you have some idea of what i'm planning on purchasing here are my plans. Have him get @ least the 3 commercial sites to sign 6 month or 1 year contracts. I plan on cutting in afternoons between 3-7p.m and on weekends with one helper. I already have a trailer and truck Now he wants to sell it to me for a flat 17K. The way i look at it for 17K i can pay it out in probably 2-3 years then start turning a true profit. What do you guys think?
