Setup/Equipment

This will be my first year in business, and I am trying to decide what my set up will be. I will be running the business out of my Ram pick up (so ill be limited on space). I plan on getting a pickup bed divider so I can divide my bed into a spot for equipment, and a spot of grass clippings (shouldnt need to be to big since I am starting from no customers).

Equipment That I plan on buying
Honda HRC216 (maybe HRX still haven't decided)
Shindy EB802 BP Blower (already purchased)

Everything else is up in the air.

This is where I need some advice...

Set up 1:
Shindaiwa LE254 (Edger)
Shindaiwa T282 (Trimmer)
Maruyama HT2321 (Hedge Trimmer)

Setup 2:
Honda FG110 Mini Tiller
Honda FG110 Broader Edger Attachment
Honda HHT35SLT Trimmer
Maruyama HT2321 (Hedge Trimmer)

The Tiller honda makes is small and is very versatile, If i use all honda equipment there will be no mixing of gas. I think the cost of each setup would be the same price range. Has anyone used the boarder edger attachment how is the finished edge?

go with honda but get the hht25slt trimmer since it's lighter. you can get a husqvarna 224L trimmer which has the same honda engine and it's even lighter than the honda.

also you can get the husqvarna 324ldx which has the honda engine. you can use it for a trimmer and buy the edger attachment for it as well.
