Use the home owner's stuff as a back-up only, get good commercial equipment, they are worth their weight in gold.
Register whatever name you decide to use, find out with the state if the name has been taken.

Chambers, go into the Commercial Lawn Care forum and read the threads in there and all of your questions will be answered. ( surf through the threads or do a search ) Mega info can be found there. Good luck
