By the time I read this entire thread I completely forgot what it was about. HMMMMMM I have one truck and 3 tractors, I have a baby sitter on staff but only part time because that's all I need. ohh ohh ohh I do have a lawn, one in front and a whole different one in back............... hmmmm Maybe I should read the beginning again.

I agree a lot can be learned from the experience on here but I have been in that same boat and I guess I still am a bit. While I am not sure I will continue working this year it is NOT because of my equipment. I have had VERY few issues with it over the years. I do have mostly low grade stuff but I take very very very good care of it and I am very pleased with it thus far, don't get me wrong I would LOVE some bigger, better stuff but a lot of us just can't finance something like a $10K mower. I think the "equipment" argument is just invalid, no doubt there is other advice that ABSOLUTELY should be taken but if what you use works for what you do then I don't see a reason to spend more money for more than you need. No doubt some of us will be happy and remain small time and some of us will go big time but so long as we are having a good time providing a quality service while taking care of us and ours isn't that what really matters? Yes if you are doing 400 commercial properties a week with a Walmart mower you are in for a hard time but just because you don't have a thousand dollar or more mower does not mean you can't make money and upgrade as needed as your grow.
