    Fill up my truck and spend the rest of the $49,950.00 on a person to do the maintenance on my mowers and deal with my PITA customers.

    Why would you buy Metros and not a hydro Exmark?

    Okay, I actually took a look at your list and you are WAAAAAYYYY off. If you're starting a new biz, screw the fancy equipment and focus on ADVERTISING!

    Having great crap just sitting in your driveway due to lack of work would be kinda embarrassing.

    It's really a regional queston, because every area has it's own type of money making operatonatys.
    Such as plowing up north verses clean ups down south.
    do you want to work hard or have someone else work hard and you collect the money.

    Stocks...with every penny. Daytrade for an hour or two a day and pay some shmuck to mow you lawn.
