hampton bays, ny
Ive Just Put Out Ads And Managed To Get Aprox 10 Accounts, Ive Had 3 Since Last Year. Before I Get Really Into This Business I Personally Think My Equipment Is Good For The Jobs I Have, Around 10-20k Max Sq Ft Jobs.

I Have A 22" Toro Personal Pace
Echo Pb 403 Blower
Echo 230 Trimmer

Only Thing Im A Little Questinable About Is Using My Car. I Will Be Putting The Eqiupment In My Trunk And Back Seat. What Do You Guys Think?

I Personally Belive Since I Own All This Equipment Right Now And Untill I Get Enough Accounts Then I Will Look Into Buying A Truck, Trailer 36" Minimum Wb Mower But For Now Should I Be Good?

As Long As I Do A Good Job, This Is What I Did Last Year As Well But I Now Have 10 Accounts As Apposed To 3 Last Year.

I Know All This Equipment Will Be Pricey And For Now I Have No Bills To Worry About And This Will All Be Profit And I Will Be Saving Up If This Is What I Do Want To Do..

Please Any Words Of Adive From..

you have to start somewhere. If you have a good summer that will give you all winter to find less expensive better equipment. It seems like the deals are great in the winter months and around here the year end equipment auctions spawn a lot of commercial equipment at decent prices.
