    I have not started a business yet but also do not have to. I plan on easing into it while I get out of several other business which take all my time now. I have been thinking alot bout the equipment and here is a basic list I have put together. I am not going to include the small stuff. Also I plan on targeting residential homes first.

    1 Truck
    1 Trailer - open 6x12 feet. 15" wheels
    1 Zero turn mower. Maybe a JD 757 or 737
    1 36" WB
    1 21" push
    1 blower
    2 string trimmers

    I already have the cash for equipment so the money to start is not an issue. One thing I wonder is if the mower (JD 757 with a 54" deck) is to large?

    What deck size would you recommend?
