Hello, I have decided to start doing my own lawn maintenance since I have been unhappy with the service that I have been getting (@ $250 per month ). I was originally considering a lawn tractor by either Cub Cadet or John Deere but it seems at 1/2 acre people are recommending a walk behind mower. (Bummer, thought I was getting a new toy ) So I have done a little bit of research and went to a couple of local stores and here's what has made the short list: Honda HRX217HXA 699.00 Echo edger SRM-231 269.00 Echo backback blower PB-403 299.00 Are these good pieces of equipment? Am I missing something? Thanks!
