I just started cutting a few residential lawns 12 to be exact. just a small part time /extra income thing that i am trying to grow a little. I need to get a blower and cant decide between backpack or handheld!! Any advice would be greatly apreciated. if needed i can spend 350.00-400.00 if it is worth the extra$$$. Also who makes the Best Brand backpack/handheld and or model? All i have to get started currently is a 48" EXmark & 21 John Deere push mower & Echo SRM-260 String Trimmer.
