Lanelle hit it right on the head! To make the thing productive, you have to have most of the attachments, or some, and that could put you over the fence right there. I agree about the trailer, it's almost a must but they want an arm and a leg for it as well! I'd save my peanuts and wait a couple more years and get a 753 or 763 to do mulch. Then if you got a bigger job, you could rent the attachments and you'd get more use out of it.
