    just got a quote for me only 300K in insurance, 10K in ins on the equip for $500 per year..

    there are many other threads of recent regarding this.

    I can not answer yout license question without knowing more info, licenses you are interested and state where you will operate.

  3. 500k liability ins. $350 year
    Trade name registration $12 per year
    Dept of ag. pesticide lisc. $350 per year

    Here in NY, my 500k liability runs me about $ 800 a year, and I had a hard time finding it. Also, it costs me $20 a year for the name registration. Hope this helps you.....

    Cost of insurance will vary from state to state, and from service to service. Also how much experience you have in the field is a big player in how much you pay. If you want to only cut grass then you aren't too bad off. If you want to do excavation or tree work then start saving for just insurance now. Keep this in mind, if you are covered for lawns and you bust up a house cutting down a small tree it's your @ss, or if you rent a backhoe or something like that and destroy a septic system, same deal. Another thing to think about... if you do, do damage like that and you don't get covered seeing as how you are 16, your parents could be held liable.
