I had some thinking time on my hands so I figured I would come up with what would be my EXPENSES if I go the route I want to this spring. Here are the following: (monthly costs) Truck true cost to own/work: Monthly payment: $700 (new F350) Fuel: $770 monthly (2 fill ups a week with diesel, 35 gal. tank, $2.75 a gal, 4 weeks in a month) Oil change: 100? (I don't know I haven't owned a diesel truck yet) Wear and tear: $230 (yearly or maintenance issues: tires-$1200, Air filter- $50, Brakes-$500, Front end- $1000 all divided by 12 to equal monthly fee) Liscenceing: I donno Total: $1800 a month (This is worst case, but feasable?) Commercial mower true cost to own/work: Mowing 3 days a week Walker MTLGHS, 26hp EFI- $400 (payment) Fuel: $150 Blades sharpened: $60 (change blades daily, 3 sets of blades, $2.50 a blade to be sharpened, 2 blades on Walker GHS deck) Oil change: $20 Grease: $10 Wear and tear:$105 ($2500 divided by 24 months) Wright Stander payment: $215 Fuel: $240 (8 Gal. a day, $2.50 a gal., 3 days a week, 4 weeks a month) Blades sharpened: $90 (same formula used with the Walker only with 3 blades instead of 2 on the deck) Oil Change: $20 Grease: $5 Wear and Tear: $65 ($1500/24 months) Trailer12x6 utility, single axle) Wear and tear: $65 ($1500/24 months) I haven't had time to figure the rest, I thought I would give you a head start on what I have. This set up is for small-med residentials. I want to think of every cost that piece of machinery may require with in the next 2 years and spread it out over 24 months so that when the time comes to replace a Pump, tie rod, engine, or tires I am not shocked and I have the $ ready. Not a bad thing to be prepaired I always thought. Would you say this is decient as a worst case senario or am I just dumb?
