hey guys,

this being my first mowing season out on my own, i was wondering what you would not leave home without as far as replacement parts, tools etc... i did some leaf jobs in the fall, and there were quite a few things that i didn't have on the job that could have been useful. thanks for the input.

Depends on the equipment you have.

fire extinguisher and most small tool kits from craftsman work well

spare blades and a wrench or socket to change them out. allen wrenches, cotters and pins, electrical tape, razor knife, hammer, pipe wrench, sandpaper, chisel, . portable air, rope. grease gun (don't forget a velke has to be lubed every single day).

another good thing to have is a metal box of some kind for reciepts and any payments recieved while on the job. pockets are not the best place in 100 degree weather.

i always keep a spare spool full of string for the trimmer, saves time and hassle, first aid kit, bungy cords,tie downs, and some grocery bags to cover the trimmers and edgers in case you get stuck in the rain.edger blades and regular hand tools. maybe a spare key to get in your truck. s##t happens!!!
