    Greetings everyone. This is my first time in this forum. I am venturing in the business of Landscaping, park land maintenance and the servicing of lots and fields. I am weary of purchasing the wron type of equipment to execute the job or new eqiop when pre-owned can do just as good. Can anyone offer tips for a timid entrepreneur?

    Two Questions,

    What equipment do you currently have?

    What specific services are you going to offer?

    Used equipment is always a good option. However, I am concerned about what you said regarding being a timid entrepreneur. If you have any doubts you should reevaluate your situation.

    You CAN NOT be timid. Dive in head first and never look back.
    As for equipment: What do you have now and what type of work are you planning on doing?
