    Im also buying equipment for my start up rig.I made a thread about blowers but I need help with other stuff too.21",36",ztrs,line and hedge trimmers etc...

    I already have a snapper 21" walk w/kaw fj180v disc drive,shindaiwa t242x, and our old equipment used for our single residential property-craftsman 21" walk and troy-bilt tb4bp backpack blower, both of which are thoroughly used.And ive used an echo srm-225 cause my grandpa has one.


    THANKS VERY MUCH:usflag:

    spend a couple days reading through this site and you will learn all you need to know

    search function works well

    what you dont find come back and ask , be more specific (types of property you want to service , budget , things of that nature)

    Look I am new to commercial lawn and landscape maintenance.I am however not new to landscaping.I have landscaped multiple homes from properties that my parents have owned to my grandparents houses as well.I have also landscaped several friends and neighbors homes.I have also maintained residential propertis for our friends and neighbors.So I am new to mass commercial maintenance(all day every day work)but im not new to the concept.

    Im starting out small,only doing maintenance.Once my company is established, I will start doing landscape sevices and hardscapes.I enjoy being outside,helping other people,and doing L&L work(making money doesnt hurt either)LOL.Anyways Im only 16 to tell the truth and instead of working at a fast food joint or something,Im maintaining lawns trying to save money in the bank.Ill admit im a noob for commercial lawn business but im finding my way.I want this to be my carreer.

    P.S. im making another post with more info. THANKS FOR THE HELP:usflag:

    I intend to maintain small to medium residential properties.I live in east texas so there are a lot of trees to drop tons and tons of leaves mainly during the fall(we have 15 in our yard-1/2 acre lot).I dont have too much money to spend so I work a lil and spend a lil.Im trying to spend money fairly quickly buying stuff so I can have a full commercial rig.Once I have that Ill start to save more and spend less.I want mid of the road equipment-ill use gear drive walks rather han hydros,that kinda thing.I need two backpacks and i dont want them so heavy like shindy eb8520 and redmax ebz8001.Right now I dont have enough money o spend on a 5000$ plus ztr so Im more focused on 36" walks and 21" wlks.Ive had experience with shindaiwa and echo line trimmers and Im satisfied.(t242x/srm265). I want a mid to upper class performance blower so I can use it year round and it have enough blow for fall cleanup.Im Looking at STIHL BR600,SHINDAIWA EB802,& REDMAX EBZ7100(dealer support is not a factor-all are awesome).I have TORO,SCAG SNAPPER,ARIENS,HONDA,EXMARK,LAWNBOY,WRIGHT,GREAT DANE,and JOHN DEERE dealers that I like. I interested to hear your feedback,and if you need more info plz let me know.


    THANKS:) GOD BLESS AMERICA:usflag::usflag:
