This past season was my first year and I use a Toro 36" t-bar gear drive mower, Echo 235 weedwacker, all Echo chainsaws, hedge trimmers, pole saw/hedge trimmer. As well as a Husqvarna 130BT, I bought this unit for $199 at Lowes two years ago before I was a business. I cut 15 lawns a week then and this season I was cutting 20 lawns a week and the Husqvarna can take care of any grass clean-up but it is on the weaker side for leaves, only 150mph. I have no complaints, I was trying to save and I feel that I save my money exactly were I needed to when I was starting out. I haven't done any maintenance to it and it still runs like new.
Highly recommended for grass clipping clean-up.
