    Buy a used 21", a used trimmer, and a blower. Keep ur existing job and pass out flyers after work, Build clients, make extra money, buy equipment as you go along.

    I started with a borrowed push mower and a trimmer. Then I bought a craftsman trimmer. Then the consumer rider. etc etc.

    However, what you need will all depend on the jobs you are doing now, shooting for in the near future. Try to buy ahead. So when you grad from the push mower and buy a rider, go straight to the commercial ZTR. Skip the consumer lawn tractors completely.

    Plan on spending money until doomsday if you are going to build a "business" that will make you a living.
