My basic rule of thumb is if it's essential to earning you money, buy new.

Having said that, I've bought a lot of used equipment in the past (for other trades) that has worked just fine for many years.

Same here! Not a LOT of used stuff but non essential stuff yes, Things like tillers aerators you can buy used but, mowers, trimmers, blowers always buy new.
