Hey guys, this is my first post and look forward to getting some great advice. I am attempting to start my business for the second time. I operated a Lawn Care Co for about 2 years, but I was young and partied too much to make it work. So now that I have that all behind me, I am ready to give it a go again. I was hoping to receive some advice on start up equipment. I have a truck, and a 6x14 open trailer. I found a 48" Exmark hydro locally with a newer engine & rebuilt hydro system for 800.00. It appears to be in excellent shape so i think I am going to pull the trigger on that one. So after that, I am left with a start up budget of around 1800.00 for equipment. I have other cash set aside for marketing & ins. & such. What equipment would you would you guys suggest I get for start up. I was thinking 2 trimmers, 2 blowers, one of them being a hand held just for backup. Some kind of push mower for small gated stuff. I will also carry a few rakes etc in case I should need them. I plan on sticking to residential for now and won't be doing any landscaping. just maintenance. So with this being said, and the budget I have, what recommendations can you guys give me on brand names & what other equipment I may need. Thanks in advance for any help.
