Thanks everyone for your tips. I really appreciate it.....please keep the tips coming. I'm looking to buy a 48" Scag zero-turn. Should I buy a clam shell bagger for it? What about a striper attachment for it? What are some of your thoughts on the best equipment to get started with? What type or brand of weed eater do you recommend to start with? I have an Echo blower, a Honda 21" trim mower and a 6 x 8 open trailer. Thanks to all for your responses!
