Being you still need a trailer, line trimmer, hedge trimmer, the question is can you buy that toro and all those other things?

Link did not work so I don't know what size mower you're looking at.

You can start out with a used trailer, skip the trailer if you have an 8' bed pickup. Many ways to start when there is not much money behind you.

Keep in mind you can start with the small mower and by 1/2 way through season you could make enough to pick up a larger mower.

Here's the link Toro

$375 OBO. I would offer $250. I think that thing is going to be more trouble than it's worth.

It's strange how some of the posts have disappeared. At least three of them.

I wouldnt bother with that toro unless you get it for a good deal... Looks like It has been worked good.... Stick it out with the 22 for now until your ready to move up.... I have worked out of a fullsize truck and its okay if your just starting up. Good Luck!
