    Steve w/ Quality Landscape from New York,

    I find it very hard to believe that a 16 year old kid has accumulated all of that equipment. Either you are lying or it's your dad's business but you want to play it off as yours. To make it easy, let's see the pictures of all of your stuff. I am 25 and don't have half of what you listed but am a good size operation. If you prove me wrong then great but I don't think that's going to happen.
