    I am thinking of getting into forestry mowing and clearing land with this machine. There is some equipment for sale locally that has sparked my interest. The equipment is a 2002 Cat 248 w/ 280hrs, loftness 72" forestry mower w/ 98 teeth, bucket, root rake, landscape rake, sod compactor, and 16,000 lb trailer. He is asking $48,500. What do yall think? Too much? What would you offer? My main concern is advertizing and marketing or basically getting business. I think I can get enough work to pay for the equipment. The guy said the local home expo got hime 6 months of work. I will spend whatever it takes to get it off the ground, but I just need to know how. Flyers and yellow pages have exploded my lawn maintenance business, but I don't they would be that effective for this considering yellow pages don't come out for 8 months. Billboard? Is a turbo cat necessary or will naturally aspirated work well?
