Every Sunday I go through the classifieds in the newspaper. Just about every week someone is selling a trailer and commercial equipment. Yesterdays paper including a 6.5 x 16 trailer ($1,800) and a 52" Grasshopper (you don't see a lot of Grasshoppers used around here) w/ liquid cooled 25 hp motor & 100 hrs ($10,000). My best guess is these are people that thought they could make some easy, quick cash, went out and shot their wad on the best of the best, only to find out it just ain't that easy to make a living mowing grass, especially when they started out w/ top of the line stuff before they had a sustainable client base. One would think this is good news for those of us having to deal with the numerous newbies that enter the market, their loss being our gain and all that. But one has to wonder, is the lowballing competition being weeded out or, for every one that falls do two start up?
