How Much To Start Up ?
#1

Just looking at battery gear only and the dearest option when given one. All brand new gear $4500 round figures.

SP mower $1100.00

Chainsaw $650

Hedge trimmer $300

Bull bar Brushcutter  $650

Multi tool $600

Edger for above $150

Hedge trimmer for multi tool $200

Trimmer head for MT $150

Backpack Blower $680

Not bad i thought. BUT is all this stuff  going to need an enclosed trailer due to the electrics? Or do you buy a Van and trailer.
 

How much to allow for trailer?

If you already have a ute/truck your mobile for  well under $10k more like under $8 with a 2nd hand trailer.

Just to make it harder for chuckles

But 8K without a paying customer.

 

Could you use 2k more and buy some clients off the old guy in the crap trailor and the worn out vehicle who has been doing it for 30 years and hasn't taken on a new client in the last 10 and has trouble keeping up to his round these days but has to do Mrs pancake Fridays lawn..and Mr morning teas and Just checkin in on Frank..and..

How many A or Bs would that get you? Whats a A or B client worth you recon?

A good percentage of that most wont need for initial start up, just chucking figures around.

Besides, my round isnt for sale  :) 

Never bought clients ever but have had a few A......... and some B.........
