Father Son lawn care

My son and I started a lawn care business this year. I wanted to teach him good work ethic and also give him a chance to make some money. We have 3 weekly residential customers and a couple that called us to mow while their equipment was being repaired. We started out with some basic residential equipment.
21" TroyBilt mulching push mower
22" YardMachine side discharge
Worx string trimmer
I just purchased a Better Outdoor 36" Quick dual hydro Samurai.
I'm looking for a commercial trimmer/edger combo any suggestions?

Stihl combo

Thanks for the reply. I'm in the process of purchasing the Stihl 90 series combo with a trimmer and curved shaft edger. I got a good deal from a local dealer and also bought a used 80r with a 1 year warranty from him. I think I'll be real happy with my decision. Thanks

Just like to say "good for you and your son".... I employ one full time truck driver for my landscape delivery service and my son and I mow 44 service accounts, can't beat making money and spending the day with your son.....
