    I started up a part-time business last summer. I began with a new Cub Cadet 46" lawn tractor, 21" push mower, 5 x 10 trailer, and a new F150 4 x 4. I have recently resigned from a job of 20 years and going to go full-time with the lawn care.

    To start this up, I have purchased a 2003 Exmark Lazer Z 60" ZTR, a Quick 36 Super Duty Walk-behind and sulky, two Echo trimmers, an Echo blower, a 6 x 14" tandem high side trailer. I have attached a couple pics, though, not very good ones. I am out of money, but let me know what else I should plan for.

    You're set for a while. Nice stuff.:clapping: For leaf cleanups you will want a truck loader & a backpack blower.

    Winter, and a part time job? Probably a bad time of year to just be going full time.

    The equipment normally is stored inside, or at least covered with a tarp. Thanks!

    Are you planning to just do lawn care or are you offering landscape services as well?
