    I run 2 solo crews

    2011 ram 4500 crew cab with 9 foot dump
    6.10x20 ft trailer with side gate and basket and trimmer rack
    2013 exmark x series 72 inch lazer with trac vac system
    2004 exmark hp 44 inch lazer with accelorator side bagger
    1 2014 exmark x series 21
    1 new br 600 stihl back pack with curved tip
    1 new rx 100 stihl trimmer with speed feed head
    2-4 no spill gas cans depending on the day.
    Stihl hand tools such as folding saw a set of loppers and hand pruners
    1 stihl set of 24 inch hedge trimmers

    crew 2

    2012 ram 4500 4x4 crew cab with 9 foot dump
    6x16 ft trailer with basket and trimmer rack and drop axels
    2013 exmark x series 60 inch lazer with trac vac system
    2005 exmark 36 inch tthp with stand on and accelorator side bagger
    1 new br 600 stihl back pack with curved tip
    1 new rx 100 stihl trimmer with speed feed head
    2-4 no spill gas cans depending on the day.
    Stihl hand tools such as folding saw a set of loppers and hand pruners

    Then we have about 100k worth of stuff that doesn't go out on a typical lawn mowing day.

    Now, or when I started?

    Big difference.


    Sounds like you are just starting out from all the questions/threads posted.
    What someone else has may not be realistic for you to try to "copy".

    2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    5x8 Trailer

    Shindaiwa LE231
    Stihl KM 90 ( line trimmer and hedge trimmer)

    I'm gonna turn the KM 90 into a short reach hedge trimmer soon and buy a Shindaiwa T282 as a string trimmer. I'm also going to pick up some Jungle Jim's for the trailer so I can just use my truck bed for storing debris.
