I am recently out of highschool and into this full time so I know where you are, it seems like just yesterday I started out at 15/16. The last thing you want is to have that kind of debt. Even if you have a lot of cash save it...you are turning a liquid asset into something that could possibly be hard to get rid of. I would start with a hydro walkbehind at best, that way you might be able to turn a profit the first year. You really should look at getting a good used piece of equipment like a commercial machine used by a homeowner with low hours, I see these all the time. Then you can spend more money on a truck or just save it for a rainy day.
And skip the stihl stuff, I have a lot of handhelds and that stihl equipment is a total waste of money. I'd get an echo/shindaiwa/or redmax trimmer and a handheld blower.
Good luck, PM me if you have any questions, I'd love to help.
Mike
