Ive been thinking recently, and think i may be on to something. Please dont apply this to wbs, that another ball game i think. Im talking standers and Z's here. The mowers that i am investigating purchasing next year come with 2 year complete waranties. What the thought was is to run them for 2 years, then sell them and buy new again. The benefits i see are many. First, my dealer will only give out loaners while in the waranty period...this way id never be out of waranty. Similarly, id never have an uplanned maintenance expense. Secondly, it would be very cheap to own. It seems that it would be easy to dump a 2 year old mower with 1000-1500 hours for $3000-$4000 less than what you paid. This would make your ownership cost around $2k per year...not bad, and similar to what a mower would cost annually over its usefull life if used until sever maintenance costs were incured...around 3000 hours. Also, since my immage is very important to me and my clients, we would always have nice shinny equpiment on their properties. I dont see many downfalls to this, can anyone help me see the other side to this coin? Anyone do this now?
