    I really like the Kawasaki backpacks and STIHL handhelds.

    I believe based on your $2,000 reserve fund your are way below a safe level to start out.
    I would recommend at least 18 months of funds available to take care of your day to day bills excluding you business expense. Starting out in any business from scratch is tough enough and having an actual cushion for 18 months will help a great deal until you get better established.
