    i was alsol looking at that package deel is it the one on ebay toro 48" 6 by 10 dovetail trailer and a blower and weed eater? looks like a pretty good deel to me. the blower is a lil on the low side for power but if you only mow it looks good.

    The Kawasaki KTR27 is more popular with homeowners, not a bad unit though.
    I would recommend the KGT27 it is more popular with the commercial guys. As far as the blower, it is a small backpack blower pretty much designed for blowing grass and light leaf build up. If you are looking to move more you need a more powerful unit. Hope this helps.

    The CFM spec to look at is how much of the CFM shoots out the end of the pipe.

    Stihl BR600 712 CFM at the end of the pipe.

    Redmax 8000 688 CFM at the end of the pipe.

    i think that my dad and i are going to drive down to Nashville in a few weeks to get that setup because we both think its a good starter and its a good deal. i am excited to finally get some equipment and then get going. any ideas on advertising for some snow removal this winter and then i can mention that i will mow in the summer. any tips on advertising would be greatly appreciated.

    100TH POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
