New to the forum and my first post. I am thinking of starting a part-time lawn care service (Mar 01). Have $4K to invest and will probably borrow an add'l $2K from bank. Thinking of buying the following equipment: -5' x 12' trailer w/2' solid steel sides with brackets for racks, spare tire w/mount, 2'x2'x5' mesh tool box, storage for 5 gal gas can. 3500lb axle. (made to order). Approx $2,000.00. Saw mesh side trailers for $995.00 but no where near the trailer described above. -36" 14HP Kaw Exmark Metro Gear Drive: $2450.00 -Echo Pro Attachment Series: PAS-2601 power source: $300.00 -Echo Hedge Clipper attachment: $200.00 -Echo Trimmer attachment: $100.00 -Echo Edger attachment: $90.00 -Echo Tiller/Cultivator: $200.00 -Shindaiwa BP Blower EB500: $379.00 -Insurance policy w/remaining money. I know the above equipment is not the best, would like a Hydro Turf Tracer and individual Shindaiwa equipment but can not afford it now, maybe next year. Do you think the above equipment is alright to start with? Your help and responses will be greatly appreciated. Prices shown are what is on equipment display in store. Dealer stated he would give a better price when I bought everything together.
