I will be starting my own company this year part time as I work full time for another company as a manager (I have permission and will not be competing). I have about 8 years of experience and BS in horticulture from Virginia Tech. I will be working on my time off doing maintenance and free lance landscape design. On to what I want advice on. I plan on looking at a Exmark Metro 48" 2007 tomorrow. I am very familiar with larger hydro exmarks from my time at a national landscape company. Just wanted opinions on starting with this mower as a primary. I will be targeting smaller 1/4 to maybe acre lots. The guy is offering it to me for 1200 and he had been using it as a backup mower to his much larger zero turns. That comes with a vekie.
