I agree! I thought I didn't anything bid either this year. Bought a new PG machine, trimmer & blower, and now looking at adding another mower due to volume and time constraints! Now I am considering an enclosed trailer! Need to stop spending!!!! My wife calls these things TOYS
hehehehe its to easy to spend Iv only spent 4 k so far this year but I'm dropping another 18k in two more weeks then I can add in new truck soon I already need a 4th. And I can add in land cost and shop costs this looks to be a very expencive year.
If things keep going the way they are so far, im thinking of adding another Wright stander or maybe even a Vermeer stump grinder to the fleet. Glad to hear that everyone is having a decent season so far!
Low interest rates, more work - why not! I purchased 2 new Hustler mini Super z's (25hp/52"), a used Lesco gas powered spreader, a used Lesco Renovator, and just today had a Bobcat MT52 mini track loader with an auger head, two bits and a trencher attachment delivered to the shop! Quite overwhelming, as we are a small outfit, but our old Encore Z52's were slap wore out and we have been getting tired of renting a trencher for our irrigation installs and that Little MT52 is sooooo handy.
Question for you all: When we rent equipment, we generally pass the rental charge on to the customer. If you own your own specialty piece of equipment, how do you guys charge the customer? (in order to make payments; maintenance & wear on machine etc.)
