Heres the deal, i have the opportunity to purchase a 2003 model X2001 dixie chopper 50" for $1300. Its the dixie chopper i have been using for two years now that my dad owns and allows me to use. Im moving my business to my college town in texas, but i see it as starting a new business. I plan to go to a farm equipment auction next weekend to get a trailer. I also plan to get two echo weedeaters and a blower. I know this sounds like childplay to some of you ass-busters out there, but i need to get the most i can out of $3000. Thats all i can afford as i am also a full time college student. So. Questions are.... (1) Is the Dixie Chopper a good deal (fair condition)? (2) If so, That leaves $1700 Dollars, how can i best use it? What i think i need: Trailer, Rider, Walker, 2 weedeaters, blower. I plan to do Mowing, Triming, edging only. Maybe fertilizer when over head is lower.
