    how old are you?

    Sorry to hate on you and such, but i have to. I really find it funny how many handhelds some of the solo ops buy. Its especially prevelant in the 15-17 and sometimes even 18 y/o kids. I mean really a solo operation, why do you need three trimmers? I could understand a second one just in case. Three blowers. Get a backpack and a hand held. How much tree work do you actually do that you need three chainsaws? I am just starting out now, and am 18, and i have high expectations, but i am actually on earth. I just dont understand why some people go out and spend money on equipment that just sits especially when this stuff isnt cheap 300-400$ for a trimmer. Like two 36" from what i understand you (mikey) want. just doesnt ever make sense to me.....

    Im 20 years old, that is my younger brother in the picture. I was given about half the stuff. My Dad use to work for Davey tree so he bought good equipment.
    In the last two years I have bought:
    FS-90 New
    FC-110 Used
    KM-110 New
    MS-210 New
    BR-600 New

    The Rest of it was given to me by my father, for example that chainsaw, the 044 I have never used for any jobs, its just way to big.
