    The best equipment is what each person has, it's the only way they can justify buying it. What I like best in the order of your original questions are, Best Trimmer-Shindaiwa, Best Mower-Dixie Chopper, Best Blower-62CC Red Max.<p>Since you edited and changed your questions, I've edited and changed my answers.<br>1. Shindaiwa T270<br>2. Red Max 62CC<br>3. Shindaiwa<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<p>

    depends on the accts you have i wouldnt buy a 72&quot; dixie chopper for small residentials i prefer shindaiwa weedeaters and edgers and red max back pack blowers, i use tanaka hedge trimmers but i wouldnt say they are the best buy only what you need and save money for a working capital.....in my opinion the best equipment is the equipment that is paid for and runs good, i would start with residentials and work you way up to large commercial accts if you jump right in to large comercial accts and finance all your equipment what are you going to do when you loose the large property next year to a lower bid and you have a bunch of payments to make, with residential who can be sure you will never lose all your income at once unless your mower breaks down and you dont have any working capital to rent one while the other machine is getting fixed <p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida

    The best brand is the one you can get serviced quickly and reliably when you need it. Second criteria would be how well the dealer will stand behind the product. Any warranty is only as good as the dealer wishes to interpret it. Most major brands are equally &quot;good&quot;, the dealer makes the difference.
