    Im trying to start my lawn mowing business and i was just wondering if I should go all out and buy brand new mowers or buy used ones until I grow. What all does everyone have? how big of trailer? etc... thanks for your input. Also how did evryone advertise? What should I do and what should I not do? :dizzy:

    I bought all new equip when I started and advertised in the yellow pages, yard signs, etc. I had also sold another biz and had the money to do so. It depends on the money you have and your credit rating.
