    This will depend on the size of the lawns and how much you get for them. If it is 7 $10 lawns, no, but if it's 7 $30 lawns or 7 $50 lawns, makes a big difference in what we can recommend for you to do. Give us some more to go on. :)

    torograsshopper--it does not matter how many lawns you have if you have the urge to come of age.

    it is a natural thing.

    don't fight it.

    that is...as long as we're talking lawncare!

    if we are talking coming of age with the lawn owner's daughter...forget that I replied!!!:D

    GO FOR IT, IT WILL BE A VERY GOOD INVESTMENT FOR YOU, AS LONG AS YOU CAN AFFORD IT.Your lawncare will make you more money if you put more into it, but stay were you are comfortable with the payments.Dont go overboard,But for your question,Yes I would invest in this kind of equipment,But check other dealers and brands in your area and make sure your dealer will give good service and back you up.I personally would buy nothing but John Deere.

    Go for it. If things don't work out you can always sell the mower. ED

    You might want to get the 48" instead, probably only a few dollars more.

    You will never hurt yourself with better tools or equipment. Provided you can justify spending the money. At the seminar in the Louisville Expo we were told "If you do not spend 20 hours or more a week with the piece of equipment that you want to buy, then it's not worth the cost". However in your case it's a little different. You will add more and more due to the fact that your image of a professional will be better, and your lawns will also look better. Plus it's the right thing to do to better your business. You always have to start from somewhere, so just go and make the next step. I hope it works out well for you!
