well ive been doing the landscaping side for 5 yrs. and I was bringing on a partener who worked at trugreen for 3yrs. He tells me they used all push spreaders, backpack sprayers, and tank sprayers from the truck. is there a downside to using this equiptment besides having to walk? Can this euiptment get the job done for the first year before I have enough money for a machine? Any suggestions?

Lesco push spreaders and back pack sprayers are good to use if you do not mind walking every lawn off. It can get the job done and and is nowhere close to as expensive as a permagreen. I personally use a push spreader and a backpack sprayer as well it just sucks when I have several houses on the same block that are big or on large commercial properties.
