    Newbie here located in Missouri. I'm looking for used equipment. I am "mow and go" residential operation so I don't need any zero turns or anything too fancy just yet.

    Here's what I'm looking for:

    A 21 push mower. I have my main mower already so I'm just looking for a mower that is in decent shape that can serve as a backup in case the main mower goes down.

    Blower (Backpack blower preferred), Edger, Trimmer, Misc. tools

    Since I am just starting up, I'm on a shoestring budget so please take this into consideration if you make me an offer on any equipment. Thanks.

    I still don't think you need to charge a sales tax in Kansas. Here is the best answer I can give, call the Department of Revenue, ask if there is a sales tax on services. Remember, you are selling a service, not a product or goods. I say that because, there are different terms used in determining if there is a sales tax that is needed. By the way, do you want to charge and pay sales tax income.

    In Kansas, if you leave something on the property, like mulch, fert, plants, etc, you need to charge sales tax.

    No tax for mowing.

    I am glad you replied. I was going to send him to you but I could not remember your ID. I am glad I don't do business in Kansas yet, what a pain to incorporate sales tax.
    Hey, KS_Grasscutter, how are those GS working out?

    I spoke with dol and was advised I need to obtain a sales tax registration for pesticide applications. I can purchase the products tax exempt but must charge the customer sales tax for the product and labor. All other services are exempt of charging sales as long as it is residential and not considered a commercial remodel job. Trees, mulch, and decorative gravel intended for residential installation require the contractor to pay sales tax to the vendor but do not require sales tax on labor or material to be collected from the customer. Commercial work has different requirements.

    I'm not sure what you mean by GS? If you mean Grandstand, I went with a RH Wright because it was a lot cheaper. And I'm not sure how its working out because I have yet to use it haha. Were just barely getting started on cleanups.

    I thought you were going all Grandstands because of the cut quality, anyway no biggie, just thought I would ask.
