    Your first stop should be the truck, trailer, and mower dealerships :)

    If only to look around and see what you like.

    no am not that clueless!!! i've checked online to auctions and on the side of the roads and picked up the magazines for trucks that they have free at the acme or a shop rite store. i was just wondering how everybody else get there stuff cuz am having a hard time finding a good truck i have a f 150 1989 its in pretty good condition gona need a lil bit of work done and also its a stick shift. you gotta have a good feel of the clutch leveling out that and the gas peddle so i was thinking of getting a automatic and a new truck. what do you think??

    Well if you're having this hard a time finding a truck and equipment, then maybe you should re-think starting your own business.

    I dunno what to tell you. There are trucks for sale everywhere, the dealerships, newspaper, auto trader, ebay, etc etc. Same thing with trailers and mowers.
