I would go with a Hustler for mower, great featues & designs over other mowers and very dependable. If you can budget it, buy the Hustler X-One or Super Z they're built like tanks great commercial machines.

We run Stihl blowers, have some Redmax edgers and hedge trimmers. For blower I would go with Redmax or Shindaiwa- both great products.

That's kind of a broad question.

That's like asking what's the "best" car you should buy.

What type of grass are you mowing? how big are the lawns? do you have backyard gates to deal with? How is the terrain (Hilly, flat, etc)? What's your budget?

Many have brand loyalty.

Go with the hustler. Shindawa makes nice handhelds, most are pretty lightweight too.

Ok thank you I've been looking at the X1 and for the price think that's the one. Think shindaiwa for a blower. I have a shindaiwa T260 trimmer and can't kill it
