My start up costs/equipment wishlist. Thoughts?

Alrighty, here's my start up list that I've gathered after long and hard research -- not!

The ZTR issue is still up in the air as I'm not sure if I want to buy new or a used one (to save money). I also had plans on doing an LLC but I think I'll hold off on that and just start as a DBA for at least a year.

Rough estimates:

LegalZoom DBA - $120
500K Liability - $500ish /year
Local Biz License - $20
JD Z920 54" - $7700 (Quote from JD)
Husqvarna 28cc Weedeater - $218 (debating STIHL FS 70, but already own 1 Husqvarna 28cc)
STIHL BR350 Blower - $360
STIHL FC 70 Edger - $299
STIHL HS 45 Trimmer - $299
14ft Trailer - $1300
Justrite Fuel Cans - $160
Twine - $40
Push Mower - $200

I'm really comfortable with the JD and Stihl as that's what we used at work and rarely gave any problems.

So I'm looking at about $11000 starting out. Reasonable? Did I forget anything.
