    Say you were just starting out in the lawn care business. You've worked for other companies before and decided to do something on your own. You were lucky enough to have the backing to go out and get any equipment you want. Properties would probably need a mid mount bigger mower and maybe a walk behind, what would you get. Remember, you have enough backing to get what you want. :blob3:

    Why are you asking that?
    Same thread, more or less, started this morning.

    Haven't you already answered your own question? Don't go crazy buying stuff, "just because you have backing." Sounds like you need a 50-60" mid-mount a a 36" WB and the rest of the equipment like blowers, trimmers and edgers. Do you have a tow vehicle and trailer? Remember, whoever is backing you will want paid back. Nothing sucks worse than paying for your equipment and not having much left over for yourself &/or the business. Good luck.

    This same type of thread seems to pop up all the time. It is getting very monotonous.

    To answer your question though, get what you feel is best for the job. If you have been in the industry already, you should have a good idea of what is good and what is not, and what you would need to complete the desired tasks.
