    I am going to be starting a lawn service this coming march and i have a few questions for y'all. I currently am going to school and will be working a few hours after school. I am only 18, so money is tight.

    1. I am looking for a cheap or moderate priced good push mower.
    2. Cheap but good edger.
    3. use truck bed or buy trailer?
    4. best way to gain customers in a hurry.
    5. Digital Camera needed?
    6. any other tips.

    If your looking go a new mower, go with a Lawnboy or a Toro, or if your looking for a used look for a good 32" w/b. As for a edger i like stihl, or echo. I would way get a faily good new or used trailer like a 5 x 10 or 6 x 12. If you want to get customers try handing out flyiers door-to-door and advertise in your local paper. You shouldn't need a Digital Camera, only if you want to take pics of your equipment and work. Just start small and you will grow faster than you think. Good luck. Just my two cents.
