Buy a good blower since this will save you time. You can work with the crappiest trimmer or mower and get just as much done but trying to blow off 4k sq/ft of driveway/walks with a little blower and you'll be there a long time. I started with a handheld blower then went with the Echo 751 and it was like night and day. Upgrading my trimmer and mower added nothing but reliablity(except when I bought a larger mower), upgrading my blower saved me a boatload of time.

And buy the biggest blower you can get, imho. I carry an echo handheld on a rack for the little stuff but I mainly use the big one.

Some of it depends on what services you do and what you charge. Remember the better and more efficeint the equipment the more you should charge per hr. This takes into account that with bigger better equipment the less time it will take to do the same job. You have to pay for it somehow.

One hell of a marketing plan to keep that equipment busy.

Sounds good. I would upgrade the blower to a Redmax 7001/8000.
