    Looking at your spelling and grammar, you need to quit now and get back to school. j/k :p

    Why sell it? Why not hold on to it and who knows where your life will lead.....

    If you do end up selling your stuff, I'll take the toro, and the redmax blower off your hands. I need a smaller walkbehind, and you can never have too many blowers. Let me know. :)

    I think you'll regret it. Seeing that you've made it enough to purchase the equipment, why not try to keep doing it on the side?

    You never know, sounds like you have a pretty nice setup if your grades are slipping then just put mowing aside for a while and figure out your schedule and work from there. You can always get back to mowing once you figure out what u need to do in school, maybe get a crew together to speed things up so u have more time to study.

    Keep your stuff. You will get the bug back soon enought. Trust me. Been there done that. Lucky I only had gotten rid of a few things.

    I'm with everyone else. Sleep on it a while and save your stuff unless you need the money. Replacement costs when you get back in will be a lot higher.
