Have you done any searches for suggested equipment on this site? If not, would be wise to do so, and check out the manufacture's home sites, compare goods, bads of all.
Have said before, when you ask that kind of question here, it's like going to a car show and asking which is better, Ford or Chevy.
Only here you will get a recommendation for every brand known/available as the best.
Do some hands on shopping, ask questions, take notes, literally. Then ask specific questions here.
You could end up deciding on an absolute best piece of equipment only to discover it isn't readily available in your area, but that's another subject.
I'm just suggesting the above, not putting you down for asking. :-)

Yo Swing,
If you don't mind, I've a couple of questions for you.

You have experience with all the brands and equipment you have listed, how 'bout offering up some of your opinions, likes, dislikes, etc.

Just wondering, how is that you're wanting to start up an LCO this time of year. I know it 'can' be done anytime, just thought an experienced hand would pick prime time to launch.

Good luck whatever your goal

My signature line has almost everything I am using. It's all very good equipment except for the Gravely and Husky chainsaw.
