    I've been lurking around here a few months and finally became a member.I am planning on starting out part-time at the beginning of 2006.I am going to keep my regular job and start out slow. I don't have alot of expensive equipment yet, but some decent equipment that I believe will work good til I get built up enough to get some real good equipment.
    I have read alot here in the forums, and there is alot of good info here.Just wanted to say "Hello" to everyone and hope to keep learning from you guys.:waving:

    I too would not be where I am now without this forum. I researched this site and read every thread for 5 months before I finally made the move. I can't begin to thank everyone here for the knowledge and advice they have supplied me with. Thank you to all the seasoned veterans, and welcome to all the new guys. Read, read, read. It'll make a world of difference!

    Cheers! :drinkup:

    Well,I have been buying up pieces of equipment for a few years now.My dad has tinkered with small engines all his life, and can pretty much bring them back from the dead.So,I find alot of stuff not running, buy it dirt cheap,invest in some parts, and he gets them goin.
    I'm gonna start out with:
    I have:
    2 Snapper Commercial 21' Self Propelled Mowers
    John Deere 260G Weedeater
    Homelite Bandit Weedeater
    McCulloch Handheld blower
    Snapper ET300C Commercial Walkbehind edger
    McCulloch Titan GHT30 Hedge trimmer
    and a Craftsman chainsaw and McCulloch chainsaw
    I know I'm gonna need a decent rider or walk behind, but I think I have enough to get a decent start.
