    I've posted a time or 2 here but I guess I'm "introducing" myself again. I have decided to do lawn care as a side job in addition to my full time gig at the airport. I'm thinking 10-15 lawns to make a little cash, but mainly to justify buying nice stuff for my own place.
    I demoed a new lazer z e series today and I have to say, I am very impressed. I know the dealer personally and am inclined to buy an exmark, if for no other reason than I know the service will be great.
    I have read many posts on here but would like some advice. I can finance a new mower and make the payments/fuel/basic upkeep-oil, fuel, etc- from my 3 neighbors who all want me to maintain their lawns. I also know of 5 more properties, all roughly an acre that I can now, trim, etc.
    With 0% financing, what are your thoughts on buying new vs buying used? Obviously I know that used has no payment. I guess I'm looking for good reasons not to drop 8 grand over 4 years.
    Thanks in advance
