I wanted to run this idea by a panel of my piers to see what you all think. I have been considering picking up another ZTR to complement my 48" ZTR. Specifically I have been thinking about something in the 60" class. Now here are a few random thoughts and reason why I have been thinking about it. The first reason is I would like to target some larger, more open accounts w/ less trimming, edging and blowing. The reasoning behind that is of course same/more money with less physical effort. I have some accounts right now where those tasks take more time than the mowing. The second reason is that it would add more variety and versatility to my business. That would make more opportunity available to me. The third reason is productivity. At any location I could use the 60" productively, surely I could get at least a 25% increase in productivity. That would increase my earnings by 25% per hour when I could use it instead of the 48". The fourth is that I could recoup the purchase price within 500-600 operational hours. In that calculation I'm only considering the 25% increase in earnings per hour over what I would get w/ the 48" Z. I believe that's a good conservative projection. But that is quite a long recovery period, respectfully, in comparison to what it would be like in contrast, to say the recovery period for the initial investment in the 48" Z. The fifth reason is it would split the hours between two machines rather than placing the full workload on one machine. However, considering I am a solo operation, I'm not 100% sure I'm looking a this idea objectively from the proper perspective. I'm not sure rather this is a sensible or senseless idea, since after all I am solo and can only use one machine at a time. Please vote!!! Also if you have something to add, please do, reguardless of rather it's a pro or a con. I'm sure others have been faced with a similar situation. Please share your experience too. It's always refreshing to me to see a fresh, new angle on things from someone else's perspective.
