Equiptment suggestions?

I've got $250.00 to spend for a back-up trimmer, what would ya'll recommend? My main trimmer is a Stihl FS90, but I am open to any brand and all suggestions.

I am also seriously thinking about a new ZTR mower. I'm doing around 15 or so yards a week as a part time job. Some accounts have chain link fences in the back yard, gate sizes vary from 44" to 50". With the number of cuts per week and gate size restriction I am facing what would your recommendations be?

42" Bobcat Fast trak. We have 3 of them for small residentials and back yards.

throw another $30 in with your 250 and buy another FS90.... best bang for the buck on the market.

I paid close to $350 out the door for my FS90, and that was the cheapest price with in 50 miles, other wise I would be getting another.

I will have to check out the Bobcat line and see if there is a dealer close by. Thanks..
