Hey All,

I am new into the "Business" of lawn serving, but not new to the actual work. In advance, I have only maintained and done work on my properties. Now, since I love and enjoy it, I am going to make a side business out of it and see where it leads. I am buying all from a local dealer due to the dealer being within 7 miles of where I live/work.

I will be looking at doing 80% Residentials and 20% Commercial. Please rank 1-10; with 10 being the being the best and 1 being the worst.

All equipment is Husqvarna.

WGP3213 Walk Behind $2,800.00
7021RC Walk Behind $530.00
123HD60 Hedge Trimmer $310.00

Thanks in advance and I appreciate your honesty and experience in the field. Looking forward to seeing what you all feel.

honestly no one really does anything with Husky around here, but I would stay with a big brand for mowers and large equipment, like Scag, Bobcat, Toro, eXmark. It sounds like you're buying this stuff brand new, which if you're just starting out I'd say take a look into some used stuff. For the most part you can get yourself some good quality machines and save yourself a LOT of money.

I would also say go for used equipment I like exmark and redmax
