    Do what you have to do to get started, most people have. You will find that commercial equipment is made differently, comes with different warranties, and the service is usually better. The equipment will last longer.

    Don't jump the gun on equipment, if it works and does a good job, go for it. Some LCO's end up buying the biggest and baddest and can't pay for it....plus you can always get a good deal from other LCO's...when they bail!!! :)

    I think if I were you, the first thing I would purchase would be a larger, hydro drive mower. A 48" or at least a 36". You will cut your time in half, at the least, considering you are only using 21" mowers now.

    We've found a lot of places in our area have gates too small for a 36" deck.
    Probably the first step up would be a 32" walk behind or a 34" zturn machine.We know of one large service in area that has passed up a number of lawns for that reason.
