    I need a commercial 21" lawnmower (self propelled) and straight shaft gas weedeater (commercial if possible) and a gas blower (handheld or backpack)

    budget is $1,000 or less-

    what models of each do you recommend?

    Runninhorn,
    Go with used Commercial equipment, go to eBay. as far as brands go, you could spend a year on this site alone sifting through the different opinions. (you know the old saying, opinions are like _ _ _ _ _ _ _ s, everyones got One") Lots of Lco on ebay having there "going out of business sale" there!
    See if you can't find some low hours & lightly used stuff. Get equipment that has a dealer near you so if/when you need parts or service your not stuck between a rock & a hard place.

    Good luck & welcome aboard! :drinkup:

    thanks.

    just found this weedeater on ebay-

    STIHL FS110R for $225, is that a decent deal?

    For a 21" mower, I would see if I could find a toro proline 21" with a 2 stroke suzuki engine on it. The engine will run for a long time!! If you were a bit closer I'd sell you a snapper commercial 21" mower I have. Thing runs like a bear!!! I would personally also recomend REDMAX handheld equipment!!
    Shoot me an Email if you'd like to know more about the Snapper I have. I'd be willing to ship if you'd be willing to pay!!!!!

    If money is the problem buy the consumer cast deck Toro to get yourself started, it's got a five year warranty. Stihl has the FS80R that is a great starter commercial trimmer for $279 and a back pack blower BR340 for $299 that no brand can touch for $299!!

    Try a search engine, like Google or Yahoo. :confused:
    also Toro hasn't made o mower with a two stoke Suzuki for a few years now. EPA shut um down. :cry:
