    now we've got a shindaiwa t231, t261, and a toro proline. I'm hoping to be able to buy an exmark wb some time around december.

    My first gear since I started up this time was... 21" Snapper ( 89 model ) and my br 420, Kawi trimmer, and Junky push edger.. I bought all new commercial 2 stroke gear, and chumped out on the mower, which BTW cost $20 bucks, and made me about $250 before the motor laid down....

    22" Craftsman self propelled
    Weed Eater brand trimmer
    Weed Eater brand blower
    Legs and arms for walking and pushing around the neighborhood

    **All of my original equipment was bought by an old neighbor which I traded out cutting his grass for free since he bought me the equipment. To this day he and his family are still my families best friends and his yard along with my parents yard are the only ones which I cut for nothing. (which I don't have to do anymore but do it anyway)**
