    HI all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mark and I am in the US Navy. I am currently deployed to the kitty litter box and have about 6 months left to plan and organize and save some money.

    I have been thinking about this as a career for about a year now and have actually bought a on-line "get started in lawn-care" guide. I would just like to know a couple of good on-line sources to look for good starter equipment that will get me through my first year as a "part timer".

    I have read a good amount of posts and I am glad to see the camaraderie y'all have towards each other. thanks for any and all suggestions and advice.

    Used eqiupment can be found on-line on ebay or craigslist. Craigslist seems to be the place to fine some deals. Ebay seems to be more expensive.

    Good luck

    Check the members only equipment marketplace.
    I usually scan the members location to find equipment close to where I live first, plenty of good stuff! Also check the "network with people" section. You can find lco's in your state as well.

    Good Luck, and get back here in one piece!
    THANK YOU for all you have done for us man.
