CAN WE GET THE POOR GUYS THREAD BACK ON TRACK? With all due respect to our diesel VS gas discussion, start another thread if you want to discuss it? It's a good topic! To the OP, you are the only person who knows if you can or can not handle and make $$ on this location. Most of the advice given so far has been good, so listen to it. Just remember that if you get hurt, lose the contract or some other bad thing happens? How will you pay for the new mower? I would also figure out is you would be better off picking up some smaller properties instead of locking yourself down to one account? You may be better off cutting 5 or 6 residential accounts in two days vs. cutting one big one?
