So how does the insurance work when your "employees" drive there tucks with your equipment? Or do you not have insurance? And do you have workmans comp? If not i hope you are the only one who ever touches a saw.

For the people who only work with me a little I have them under my insurance as sub contractors. And i have workman's comp but only for my brother because he is the only one who actually works for me. And as far as the equipment it is all covered under an umbrella coverage. Also its important to have your employees covered even if they aren't running any equipment because something can still happen to them.

absolutely this stihl has to be one of the best hedge trimmers i have ever used especially since it has the rotating handle and the power is insane. unfortunately the price was very high but i got a good deal on it from my dealer it was usually 509 but he gave it to me for 430.

I was thinking about a STIHL hedge trimmer, but I did soe research, an got a Kawasaki 24" for $310 after shipping and no tax from SLE. That thing is a beast! light, has good gearbox, and just as heavy duty as something 200 more. And, spray some fluid film on your hedge trimmers after each to keep them rust free.

Auto Zone, JDL/LESCO around here, and Amazon. That stuff rocks! Works better than WD-40 in my opinion. You have a pretty good setup too. Nice to see someone else my age working this hard.
