Actually, I already have a ZTR. Although, I would like to add another one next year (42in Walker) if I can find one cheap enough (haha, Walker and cheap in the same sentence, right... ). I am doing 10 a wk right now. I have basically new edger and blower, plan on new string trimmer for next season. Also MAY get a worktruck ($2000 GMC from a customer) if things work out. Now to answer some other questions... there is NO WAY i could afford to pay help, let alone find anyone capable of doing the quality of work I expect. Although the thought of never stringtrimming again sounds d*** nice! Stroker51, yea, driest I can remember. Just got done harvesting soybeans, at 10 bushel an acre, they were about half of breaking even... Really woulda wished we got more rain this fall, as i overseeded a couple nonirrigated lawns that nothing come up, oh well, i got paid anyway. We ARE supposed to get some rain the next couple days, hoping that works out for the wheat that is just now comming up, and of couse the lawns. Thanks to everyone for the replies! Keep 'em comming.
