    I would like to start a lawn care buisness next year,and would like to know what i could do now to get it going in the right direction. I have a small John Deere sx-70 riding mower, and recently purchased a used John Deere gs-75 commerical walk behind with a 54 inch cut. Do you think these would be ok just starting out? Any advice would be appreciated.

    i think those two mowers would be fine for just starting out. we startes with two 21" push mowers!!!:dizzy: in my opinion, the worst thing you could do is over extend yourself too quickly, because the reality of the situation is you are just starting, and you dont need all the sh!t right away. hopefully, when the buisness takes off for you, you will know when the right time to make a big purchase is. hopefully that helps a little.
