Husqvarna or Stihl is what I like. I will have 1 person with me and the other crew will be of 2. Depending how it goes I might start a 3 crew. I have all the equipment and trucks I just need another mower, I might go with a lesco.

So what is wrong with the echo? If we put various trimmers in the trailer the echo is the first on the workers go after. Why don't you take all the guards off then you could edge and get rid of the edger.

Because it starts terriable and I am too use to the straight shafts.

Because I like having a top qulity edge and so do my customers, I always get compliments that the old landscaper did'nt egde as nice as you. Also I can charge another $5 which is another $150 per yard so I made $7,500 more because of it.

This will ruin your trimmers and you will be more likely to throw debris in your face.

Thats true thats another reason why too, I try to keep safety devices on so if something happens my insurance will take care of it.
