I Also Have My Trimmers And Blower. I Have A Ford 1 Ton Truck And 16ft Trailer. I Have Been Buying One Piece At A Time Till I Had My Equipment To Go To Work. I Plan To Start Next Spring.

    Everything looks fine but I have to wonder what you will use the lawn tractor for? Also what brand trimmers and blower did you get? That snapper will do you good and is a good mower to start out with. Just be warned that ZTR's are not good on hills. Dont want to see a new person to this business get hurt.

    I have some good friends from Center, Tx from when I went to SFA.....my Hort. Prof. Dr Creech (Creechs Peaches) is from Center but his peach bussiness is long plowed under

    I have tossed a few lures on Pinkston too with a friend whos dad used to guide

    Another friends family has their name still on the drug store in Center though they no longer own it (there is a funny story that goes with that) as my friend also has a street named after him too

    good luck...If you have questions go to Dr. Mauer at SFA he is a pretty good turf guy and he was just here at Tech before going to SFA
