    From last year, I added new BP blower and trimmer racksm the 21" mower, and the 97 GMC Jimmy. Within a few months, I will be getting a 36" WB and a stick edger.

    hows the cut quality of the LawnBoy Z? I don't see too many of those around here. Looks like some nice equipment. What brand is the 21" and what 36 wb are you getting.

    Looks good - that's a nice Jimmy you've got there.
    So will the 36" wb replace the lawnboy, or are you keeping both?

    Oh, and I don't see the backpack blower - am I missing something?

    The push mower is an Ariens homeowner I think. It was giving to me and I put a b&s engine on it. I figure since the deck is aluminum, and I have a couple push mower engines sitting aroun collecting dust, Ill use this one forever lol.
    The cut on the Lawnboy is OK, It has been a really reliable machine for a homeowner model. I think the problem with the cut is the deck isnt level, Im working on it....
    The backpack blower exhaust bolts broke off in the engine block so I have to send it to a machine shop to get one of them out.
    The 36" mower will replace the Lawnboy. Im going to stick with smaller garden home and 1.4 acre lots after I get the new mower.
    I was considering a Quick 36 but I may stick with a belt drivin WB from a local dealer.
    The stick edger is undecided, I just know I need one....

    Not to hijack the thread, but if you are interested in buying a hedge trimmer or other attachment as well I recommend getting the Stihl Kombi motor, I love mine. Just don't use it as your only handheld, have a seperate trimmer.

    If you just want an edger than I recommend Stihl FC 95, plenty of power but if you do a lot of overgrown edges than go with the FC 110.

    I'll second that, I have the 110 with all the attachments but its a little heavy and somewhat of a pain in the butt to constantly change attachments. I use the redmax 2301s for primary trimmers. They are cheap ($250), light (around 9.5lbs), and plenty of power for everyday trimming. I keep the km110 for the heavy stuff.
