    I am starting out on my own this year and just went to price some of the basic equipment that I am looking at...wanted to hear some opinions as to how the prices are.....

    EXMARK ZTR 19 HP KAWASAKI- WAS $6499 SALE $ 6299
    (ANYONE THAT OWNS THIS MOWER, I WOULD APPRECIATE SOME FEEDBACK ON IT...GOOD OR BAD) I HAVE ONLY USED EXMARK 60" AND 72"

    TRAILER 6'4" X 12' PEQUEA TRAILER- WAS $1550 SALE $ 1450

    METRO 13 HP KAWASAKI WALK-BEHIND 5-SPEED WAS $2499 SALE $2399

    AND LOOKING AT A 21" PUSH MOWER....ANY SUGGESTIONS AND GOOD PRICES TO FIND THEM?????

    ALSO $20 OFF ECHO BLOWERS AND TRIMMERS THAT I PURCHASE...

    JUST SOME FACTS ON WHAT LAWNS I WILL BE TARGETING TO WORK ON...MOSTLY 1/2 ACRE AND UP, SOME SMALLER TOWNHOUSES BUT HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE ALL TOGETHER...(DONT HAVE THE LAWNS YET BUT ALREADY KNOW WHAT AREAS I WILL BE TARGETING AND HOPEFULLY WILL BE WORKING IN) I KNOW THAT I SHOULDNT GET TOO MUCH EQUIPMENT W/O THE LAWNS YET, BUT I DONT HAVE A CHOICE. I AM NOT IN IT TO TRY IT. I'M IN IT TO SUCCEED, SO I WANT TO BE READY WHEN THE WORK COMES. I WILL HAVE STEADY INCOME WHILE I AM WAITING ON MY LAWNS...I AM A FOREMAN OF ANOTHER LANDSCAPING COMPANY. AND I WILL WORK AROUND BOTH SCHEDULES TO FIT ALL THE WORK IN.

    SORRY FOR THE LONG POST...APPRECIATE EVERYONE'S HELP... :help:

    RON :cool2:
