I assume by your original question you are asking about essential must have stuff to get you started??? At the beginning you don't have to get all that fancy expensive stuff.
Bare bones essentials:
Wrench set (standard & metric)
Pull bar/breaker bar for blade bolts.
Extra set of spark plugs
Extra set of blades
If your just starting you don't need all the nice little toys, you can get by the old fashioned way. You can get the other stuff as time and money warrent it.
