All the equipment I could afford

Hopefully I'll be adding some more equipment soon, but right now I have less than 20 customers so this is it (don't know all model numbers):

JD 14ST 21" mower with Kawasaki
JD 14SD 21" mower (backup)
Troybuilt 21" mower (backup)
Echo rebuilt curved shaft ($99 Home Depot Special)
Echo 14" chain saw
Echo handheld blower

And that's about it. All that runs, anyway!

I cut grass and that's all I do. I operate solo. This is what goes with me every day.

'95 F-150
6X12 Pero open trailer
Dixie Chopper 60"
Exmark Metro 36" w/Velke
2 Shindaiwa T-230
1 Stihl stick edger
1 Stihl BR420 blower
1 MTD 6.25 hp big wheel side discharge mower
1 worn out Grass Gobbler for the Exmark
1 set 18" loppers
1 set Fiskars pruners

When the season winds down I switch to other jobs and there may be any variety of tools or machines with me. I could put a lot more equipment in my tag line but what's the point?

with an extra string trimmer att., an edger att., and handheld hedge trimmers in the tool box of the truck, I have a backup piece of equipment for most everything. I hate to have to go back to the house in case something decides not to start.
Instead of carrying spares, I find that carrying a Stihl trimmer, and blower, works for me. It always starts. No brag, just fact.
