I was lucky I did not have to buy anything major. All ready had a 4x8' Harbor Freight trailer and ramps. Just had to put better side rails on it. JD 170 42", old toro badged line trimmer, 20" sears pusher, and my 70 YO friend that comes out and helps me brings his handle held blower. Pulled by a 2005 Jeep wrangler unlimited. Also have small chain saw, hedge trimmer, and wide assortment of hand tools. So my start up costs was for some lumber, stain, hardware. A roll of trimmer line, 2 stroke oil.
