i just picked up a new FS90R. next year ill added a 600 magnum and some hedge trimmers. my buddy who is going in with me had his dad give us his 48 exmark walkbehind echo weedwacker and small blower for free as long as we just we cut his lawn. the exmark is only 2 years old believe its a metro which saves us a ton of money

i already own the 90 or i would plus we wanted to have 2 dedicated weedwackers. We were considering the Kombi system but since i already bought the 90 for some stuff this year we just decided well get a edger. As far as the hedger goes id rather have the HS81. I dont see a ton of need around me to have an extension hedge trimmer.

were leaning towards the exmark right now or there are 2 Kubota ZD326s with under 100 hours for sale around me but if those dont last till next year well buy new. The only advantage we saw that kubota had for us was that i run ZD331's where i work now i saw i am pretty familiar with the machine which would help us with maintaining it. Alot of what we buy as far as mowers go will depend on what type of accounts we get
