my name is dan, and i co-own a company with my friend. Triple P Landscaping. we do everything from retaining walls to unilock to grasscutting and tree service. my dad owns a construction company so ive in this kind of stuff since i was ten. Our equipment is as follows:
2002 Chevy 2500HD 4x4
1998 Chevy 3500 Dumptruck
12'x6.5' open trailer
Stihl FS85 extreme straight trimmer
Homelite bandit curved trimmer
Ryobi curved trimmer
Husquavarna 45BT Backpack blower
Snapper 21" mower
Craftsman 21 and mtd 21 mower
33" craftsman walk behind

this is our second year as a company and would like some info from the pros on what direction we should be heading in. i would like to get more lawns as they are guaranteed income as opposed to the several retaining wall and unilock projects we have already completed. we have a 46" mtd riding mower(tractor) and am seriously interested in a zero turn and am looking at the exmark lazer hp w/52" deck. any and all advice is appreciated thank you.

Hi,

Im not out to nock people or what they have. but the first thing i would do is get some better commercial equipment. what you have ime sure works good, but if you start getting more and more work you will have more and more problems. personal suggestion.....upgrade trimmers to either echo or tanaka, backpacks to redmax.....also i havent found anything yet that a 32 wb couldnt cut compared to a 21 push....spend a couple extra bucks there first and keep a pushmower for backup...that will get you moving a little faster. like i said y suggetionand as far as what equipment i said thats my choice to use, so pick and choose what every one else tells you to use, all have good point..for a rundown

2 72" exmark diesels
2 54" exmark hydro wb
3 32" bobcat wb

10 redmax eb8000
12 tanaka trimers....all sizes

i was out at some dealers today and am pretty much set to buy another stihl trimmer, the FS110R and the place also had a used gravely 250z, the 19 horse kawasaki w/50" deck for $4800, they had sold the machine new for 6700, it has 400 hours on it, the dealer said they sold it to a church for grounds care there and had never been used commercially. i was in the market for a 52 inch deck so im glad i found this one. any comments?
