    I'm 15 years old and I take pride in my work. if I have mow it 3 times to make it look good so be it. if I could afford new equipment ill but it. I try to clean my stuff right after it gets dirty.
    my equipment is
    5x10 landscape trailer
    a Toro timecutter I purchased new from Ferguson lawn equipment
    I figured why buy a used exmark for thousands more.
    secondly I bought a stihl fs46 trimmer brand new from lark lawn and garden
    why buy a used beat up fc 90 when I can buy new cheaper it might not be commercial grade but by no means am I a commercial company yet
    also I already owned one of them multi attach systems with a trimmer and edger. good back up and I only edged 2 times the whole 2 years ive done this.

    im hoping to get a 7x14 big tex if all goes well should have her tomorrow :cool2: ill be throwing some pics up soon! as of now I use our jeep to tow me. I know I know. very unprofessional working on getting an f-150 or gmc/chevy 2500hd just looking for the right deal

    Congrats on the business! Don't rush into a big purchase like a work truck. Always start cheap or free.

    Do you have some pictures to show off your work?

    If your 15 how will you use the trailer.....

    You can drive your mower to a neighborhood to mow.
