so, I am 19 years old and from buffalo NY. Me and my good friend are going to start a mowing business this spring and we are startting from scratch. We have plenty of money to invest.. 1st thing we are doing is going to buy a 1/2ton pickup for around 6grand. then a trailer.. insurance! a ztr mower..my uncle wants to sell me his 51" ztr mower with less than 100 hrs on it for 3,500$ which.i think will be too much to start out with even though its a good deal. We are going to buy a push mower too for small stuff.. and 2 weed wackers and some misc. tools for clean up. THe main thing I am worried about is getting our name out there!. We both are experianced with lawn maitnence. just need a few tips.. Ihave been reading on this site for about a month gathering info. any help is appreciated!
