TL;DR at the bottom. I got incredibly lucky, and I'm still in shock. I just started my lawn care/snow removal business, and through a family friend got connected with someone that provides student housing for local college students. They own 20+ buildings that vary in size, and are growing. They currently have a guy that takes care of the properties but they're very unhappy with him. I still have to work out the details but it sounds like this will be some good money. Like I said, I'm in shock, I didn't see this coming and I'm not prepared. Obviously this REALLY helps me starting off, but it also puts a lot of pressure on me to get equipment earlier than I was planning. Some of their locations I would consider commercial, and require something like a zero turn. I haven't even considered buying a zero turn as the properties I currently do are small and only take me 20-40 minutes with a push mower. Technically I could manage these new properties with what I have, but some would take well over an hour (Sorry I don't have the exact sq. ft. yet). I currently only own a 21" manual push mower, I had been planning on upgrading to a Honda HRX217 (By recommendation), and using my original as a spare. I also already own a pickup and a decently sized trailer. TL;DR: I'm wondering what is a good entry level zero turn for small commercial properties? I estimate that within the next 2 years, as I get my contracts, I'll only use the zero turn for maybe 20-30% of my jobs, but for this deal to go through I think I need to buy one. Plus buying one gives me more options in the future, I've avoided advertising to larger properties so far. Money isn't a HUGE issue, I have a line of credit I've barely touched, but if I buy a zero turn, I don't think I need the best of the best. Just something economical, for low end commercial properties. Thanks!
