If you can go new, then do it. But if you want to save the dough until you get some accounts, there is nothing wrong with buying some used stuff. When I started out this was my setup:

used 1- 60" Ferris 3 wheel rider - $1000
used 1- 36" Snapper WB - $500
1- Crapsman blower- $100
1-Echo trimmer - $200
1-Echo hedge trimmer-$250
Miscellaneous rakes/shovels - $150
used 6X12 Trailer - $500
Ad in local paper - $200
I already had a truck

$2900 total and thats all I had for my first summer. I picked up about 15 lawns that summer and made about $9000 after working my regular job. This was about 6 years ago. Good luck starting out! :blob3:
