first of all, this site is a godsend. i learned more info in five minutes on this site than i learned talking to people in the biz i know since i decided to do this about 3 mos. ago. i have a few small questions. i don't have any equipment yet. none! right now i'm looking at trailers. should i get a treated wood floor, mesh floor, or diamond plate. the diamond plate is the more expensive. since it's just me, should i get just one of everything (wb, trimmer, blower, etc.) or multiples of some? is now the best time to buy a mower/trimmer/blower since its the end of the season and model year or is spring better? i've pretty much decided on a 36" exmark since its the prevailing brand of equipment on this site and the prices around here are pretty fair. i've also pretty much decided on new equipment due to the reliability factor (and no standby equip.), but i'm still checking the classifieds every day. thanks in advance guys and wish me luck.
