    hey guys, Im Mike, just shy of turning 21 and live in Amherst, NY. Always kinda had a thing for the whole lawn mowing business ever since i was a kid, and ive been thinking about going into the business for myself. Right now, I'm a full time EMT, and i work a rotation shift, so its 4 days on, 4 days off. I was thinking about starting a small lawn mowing business on the side to sort of fill up my free time.

    as far as equipment goes, i have a few things that I just use here around the house that are all fairly new:

    Echo PB-200 blower
    Echo SRM-200 trimmer
    Husqvarna chainsaw (cant remember the model off the top of my head)
    Honda 21" wb

    I also have a 02 V8 Ford Explorer, what kills me is i just traded in my 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD with the 8,1 in it....perfect for the job!

    anyway, i figured i could tow a small enough trailer with the Exploder and pick up a 36" wb and an edger and be fairly good to go.
