Try to buy all the same trimmers, blowers, etc. That way you only need to keep one set of filters, plugs and fuel filters when the time comes.

Also, you never have to try to remember any model #'s, they're all the same.

Also, if you're a big outfit, try buying all the exact same model mowers. It makes repairs and parts replacements easier for the mechanic. Also, he only has to "learn" one machine, that way he can work faster without having to remember the nuances of 7 different mowers.

Always bring extras shirts to change into for those sweat soaked days.

Keep go-jo in the truck. You'll be suprised how much you need it after you start using it.

When string trimming do it with your mouth closed.

Check out the Gorilla lift. I have one on a 7 ft heavy duty gate and it helps alot. I doubt I could even lift the gate without it.

I've got a long list of "tips & tricks", but I think the bulk of it is the realm of "lawn & landscape management for dummies".
