Spent 8 hours reading threads and posts on this site and love it! Y'alls advice is exceptional. Here are my questions. 1. About to buy my first equipment. Independent dealer will sell me a Dixie Chopper 27hp 50'' run-behind for 3999.99 with purchase of professional grade Stihl blower, trimmer, and chainsaw at about 1100.00, does this sound like a good deal? mower 4999.99 regular price 2. First account guy wants me to cut down 3 magnolia trees, 1-30', 1-20', and 1-8' and haul them off and remove stumps enough to not worry about hitting with blades and also be able to grow grass. I'm gonna do it by myself don't have to pay for the drop off. estimate of time to complete job is 6 hours. I told him 450.00 because he's selling me a 16' trailer for my equipment for 250.00, it's in fine shape. What do ya'll think?
