    Curious if anyone leases equipment instead of buying? Mainly thinking about Z-turns or Walk behinds. Anyone know what companies offer this option?

    I have thought about this also but the equipment were running is not high end big dollar stuff. I know a few golf courses that run that way with toro but they are spending a couple humdred K in new stuff. IF our jobs were like farmers where you run a 250 - 500 K combine in the field for 3 weeks and rest of time sitting in your shop - I would think about leasing that piece of machinary.

    Yes, talk to your accountant and see if its advantagous to you. Some leases are more like financing and after the lease the equipment is yours.
