    Honestly wish I was bigger, they had 3 of these loaner/demo machines all around 400hrs with full warrantys's for like 7k a piece, all 60s tritons just mine is a 28efi and the others were 27hp kohlers and I believe there was a 28hp kawi at another one of there locations but this one was in decent shape so I said what the hell I'll try the efi out, depending on finances and if they have any more around I wouldnt mind having another lol.

    Hey Man congrats on the new purchase! Sucks to hear about the '01 Exmark, though. Yeah gotta love how people don't inform you of equipment abuse/neglect and problems when they try to sell something. :hammerhead:

    That storm was pretty crazy here in Wayne county too. I did a couple lawns on Tuesday just in time before the storm. But overall it looks like your doing well and have a bright future ahead of you! It is also good to see you expanding your business. :)

    That fuel injected Z looks sick! I just skimmed through this thread and I'm impressed. How'd did you grow from 7 accounts to 65 in one year? Business looks like its treating you well, keep up the good work

    Well, started this thread a couple years back when i worked for another guy doing this on the side, so wasnt that big, this year i went out and advertised and just talked to people and ended up with around 30-35 total, alot of recommendations go a long way, plus i was in the process of taking over my fathers accounts in a different area then i maintenance my 35, in general its been fun, was on the late side this week with a employee leaving, guy i had trained to do it all and then he finds his dream girl and goes to cali...go figure.
