    find a used wb mower, line trimmer, hedge trimmer, bp blower and LOTS of flyers. Make some money and then upgrade. You will really need at least $2000 though.

    I've got commecial Echos for sale;

    SRM-210 line trimmer
    HC-1500 hedge trimmer
    Stihl BR-400 backpack blower

    ALL FOR $500

    i agree with you matt, the lawns in my area are quit large, about 100ft by 200ft , i live out in the county in a small border town , i think a walk behind 36'' will be versatile and large enough,,,,thanks again!:cool2:
