    not a bad startup, untill you get something bigger you really don't need a trailer. I would look at a toro or exmark walk behind, good price and good equipment

    On the "walk behind edger" I would recomend going ahead with a stick edger made by stihl or echo as they are much more manueverable and easy to use than a walk behind. I assume that the "Maxim Walk behind Edger 3.5 HP Briggs & Stratin" has like 3 wheels on it...I had one similar and later upgraded to the stick edger and they are MUCH better and not much more expensive for a light commercial.
