Going into my second year, and now I'm serious. Dumped all my "will call" accounts from last year, got certified for pesticides and got 100% legal. Business plan is as a solo, target of 40 to 50 accounts, all full service apps, planting installations, full maintenance, total IPM commitment. Small properties, most gated, with 3 to 5k of turf, 1 to 3k of beds. I've decided on the following equipment purchases with list prices: Quick 32 w/15hp Kawi, accellerator catcher-$2,700. Kawasaki KHS-750 hedge trimmer- $349. (30' single side cut) RedMax 8001 blower- $525 Echo 265 string trimmer- $299 (with edgit, $70) I was looking at the Echo HC-200 hedger, but it's $459, and my dealer recommends the Kawi for 100 bucks less. I haven't seen many comments on this Kawasaki, so any feedback there would be helpful. The dealer was also trying to sell me on the Stihl FS-90, claiming that the linear power curve/RPM ratio was better on a 4 stroke vs. the logrithmic power curve/RPM ratio of the two stroke Echo 265. List price on both units are 299. I'm no engine expert.... any thoughts on this? Lastly, if I do change my mind and go with a Stihl, are these power attachment accessories durable and reliable? If I go Stihl, should I go with one of these combi-units, or whatever they call them over the dedicated FS90 string trimmer? As a solo, only I will operate the equipment, so it won't get abused. Any feedback, thoughts or comments are very welcome before I pull the trigger. (Yes, I can get all of this except the Quick from one dealer, and won't pay list). Thank you in advance.
