    i will also need to buy a trailer...i'm not sure i want to wipe out all 80K on purchasing equipment and leave myself short on operating cash... i would consider a glider after i establish myself and even consider using the truck i buy as a doner for the glider

    @double yellow explains in great detail about start up Capitol. I'm not sure if you're leasing on or going independent but if you are in deed getting your own authority then keep as much Capitol as possible to avoid factoring.

    i like that idea...even the truck that blairandgretchen bought i think was just what i am looking for...put 10k into it buy a trailer and still have 40k left to get me up and rolling...and have the cash to survive any bumps in the road

    I take it your going for your authority?

    If not why would you need 40 k for start up?

    I have a 06 9900i with a isx . I have had nothing but problems with the isx. I would look for a detroit 60 series or a 9400 with a n14.
