I'm cash strapped and need to upgrade! I started last year p/t on a sears credit card. Craft 21", trimmer/edger combo, homelite handheld blower. Well it got me started and never had any problems. I feel this stuff would make good back-up equip. I am solo and do a pro job for the small, high end residentials in my area. My min. stop is 50.00. After the first hr, I get 50.00 hr. I am not a low-baller! (anymore) Not many people take me up on this, but I do a lot of shopping around for prospects. Also, with my low overhead, I dont need many. Most of my lawns are under 7,500 sq. ft. This year ALL of my lawns will be under 7,500 sq. ft and on annual agreement. MY QUESTION IS, Would a 36" (48") make me any more productive on such small properties, many w/ trees and such to go around. Between dealer financing and my $, I have a paltry 2,200.00. I can either get a husky 36" wb for the full 2,200 and replace the craftsman stuff ASAP or, since I am concentrating on the smaller properties, should I just go w/comm. 21"trimmer, edger, bp blower, ect. and get a bigger mower later when I can better afford it. Which shouldnt be too long I'm leaning towards the latter.
