yeah ive been in business for 5 years, and have tried a few different brands over the years. My personal favorite is SCAG power equipment. They are reliable and effiecient mowers that just want to keep mowing. I have had one for about 4 years, and nothing has gone wrong except a few belts that have broke. The mower has over 1400 hrs on it, and its still going strong.All mowers that i own are scag now, and i wouldnt even hesitate about changing brands. Most commercial mowers will be all good, you just have to take care of them, and service regularly. For edgers i prefer stihl, however echo makes some good ones too!
