I am new to this section of lawnsite. I am currently 16 years old and have been landscaping since I was 12. When I started off all I had was my dad's 21" Honda Mower, A Homelite String Trimmer and a Push Broom. Now, I currently own the following equipment:
-Craftsman 21" Hi-Vac Mower w/ Swivel Wheels
-Redmax Trimmer
-Husqvarna 145 BT Backpack Blower
-Redmax EB7001 Blower
-Husqvarna 141 16" Chainsaw
-24" Electric Black and Decker Hedge Trimmer
-Mantis Tiller w/ Dethatcher and Aerator attachments
-Earthway Spreader
-Homelite Trimmer
- Yard Machines 5HP Walk Behind Blower
- Many Many Hand Tools

I must say, to get to where I was took A LOT of hard work. But the harder you work and the more you save.. the better equipment you get and the more jobs you will have. When I was 12 I did my own house and 1 other, Now 4 years later I find myself doing 8 accounts!

Hey man, welcome to lawnsite. Like you i started with a Honda 21" (is now my small yard and backyard mower), $60 curved shaft trimmer, and push broom. I started when i was eight with my house and a couple neighbors, now have 20 accounts and a really big mower!! Just one question, how does the dethatcher work on your mantis, i have been thinking of getting it for mine but don't know if it is worth it! Thanks,
