    A friend and me are getting into the lawn business and we are getting all the required stuff to start it up.

    Today we were offered what I thought was a good deal but figured I would come and ask all of you.

    - Trailer (12 footer w/ramp door)

    - Two mowers 1 is a 40 something inch the other is a 30 something inch for houses with narrow fences.

    - All Echo Equipment, Blowers, Edger, Weeder, Hedger and all that.

    As well as gas tanks, Rakes and some other tools.

    All this for 6,000.

    Mowers and equipment still have warranties.

    This is a good friend of mine offering it I thought it was a good deal, but I figured I would ask the experts and people with more experience.

    Thanks in advance for your reply as it will be very helpful.

    As soon as you buy the mowers, they will no longer have the of the bummers associated with purchasing used. As far as the other stuff...
    what type of trailer? enclosed/open? what year? good condition?
    what type of mowers? wb? belt/hydro? fixed/floating deck? engines? hours? brand?

    I bet you could buy it all new for 7K.
