What basic equipment do i need to restart my lawn care business?

I own a 3 year old lawn care business but after after returning from vacation i noticed that all my equipment was stolen. Its been over 6 months since i lost everything and im trying to start over. what equipment should i have to get back on my feet? I only have 13 small/med sized yards and 1 estate sized yard and im limited on money. can someone please help me out?
Thanks,
Zach Kemp

At first I wondered if this is some kind of a sick joke, here you claim you have
been running a business for 3 years yet you can't remember the tools you need?

Comes back from a vacation, finds everything stolen, does nothing for 6 months...!

Then I realized, it's probably you were never really serious about it,
which even now it sounds like your heart is about half into it,
so in either case my advice would be a waste of my time.

You will need everything you filed on the police report. Hope this helps.

Scissors, lighter fluid, 3 washers and water proof matches.

Like reliable said what you had before, get it again. If you can't remeber what you had, how do you remember you had 13 lawns and where they are.

Bummer you had your equipment stolen, but with that few yards, would it be worth it to get back into it?
