    Hey all,

    Please, don't bash me for what equipment I bought, I love the stuff already.

    Listings are in My Signature.
    I am going to be looking at a Lesco 36" soon also.

    just be care ful with the slpi shaft stuff, unless theve come a long way, you'll be lucky to get a good season out of it.

    My first lawn mower was a 21" highwheel murray. and my blower was an echo handeld and an 87 s10 with the 2.8 v6. but we all gotta start somewhere.

    Just remember that the equipment is not geared towards full on commercial use, so as you start getting some $$$ set some aside for upgrades for next season.

    Its still good to see that some kids are still willing to get out there and do work. If you do good work and know how to handle customers you will go far. If you do this, word will spread fast. Take my advice, Dont stop learning.

    Troy is right, when I was 16 and started out like that, I had one 6 customers, and over a period of 3 months it grew to 50 accounts. One of those 6 customers gained me like 20 customers from all her freinds. I'll tell ya this tho, only take what you can handle and trust me, dont let ur grades go down cause of work, that happened to me sophmore year and effed up my overall gpa, especially when 9,11,and 12 i ahd 3.0s. oh well lol. good luck, and start saving for some commercial equipment
