    Its not a valid question. You need to give more info on your lawn sizes. If all your mowing is yours and your moms house or something just get an edger and be happy. 1000 is just the tip of the iceberg I got about 30k in equipment

    Use it as part of personal property taxes we pay for the 260K worth of equipment the company owns:cry:

    If you really want to mow lawns, sell the Denali, get a small pickup & trailer, get a 48" w/b a decent trimmer and edger, then have Staples print up some flyers for ya.

    I wouldn't bet on the trimmer lasting long. I would buy a new comm'l grade trimmer, probably start looking for good used w/b's also.

    For those who have replied, thanks, most lawns are smaller, 1/2 or less, i was thinking, maybe a used commercial unit and a new trimmer for now
