Thanks for the tips and encouragement guys.
I'm thinking of starting off solo with the following equipment
1) I already have a 2wd Chevy Avalanche that is paid for
2) a custon built 16x8 landscape open trailer with tandem axles ($2800ish)
3) Echo handhelds (I'm not opposed to Redmax or Stihl, I'm just more familiar with Echo)
a) PE-280 edger
b) SRM-280 trimmer
c) PB-770H/T backpack blower
d) PAS-225 combo edger/trimmer as a backup
e) PB-255 handheld blower as a backup
f) and maybe a small chainsaw
4) a Toro 22198 Heavy Duty Recycler push mower
5) a 36" Toro Grandstand
6) a 61" Ferris IS5100Z
What do you guys think?
