Need some advice. I'm trying to score some big factories and high rent homes that take pride in their properties appearance. I am looking at buying an 8ft gang reel made by ProMow. It sells for $3200. I know that's what big golf courses use, but would it be a waste of money? I'm running a 64" Dixie Chopper and trimmer and blower and edger. I have a 16' tandem trailer and believe I have enough room to haul everything including the gang reel. Also, what is the new trends in mowing in 2005? How many of your clients want bagging, striping, mulching, etc.? Are you selling very many residential contracts? What's the longest commercial contract you've sold? Are you going up on your rates this year? How much? I have been charging an average of $36 every cutting without a contract and I collect on site. I want to grow bigger this year, but not by growing into big debt. I'm open to all advice. So give it to me straight.
