    1 2014 exmark x series 21
    1 new br 600 stihl back pack with curved tip
    1 new rx 100 stihl trimmer with speed feed head
    2-4 no spill gas cans depending on the day.
    Stihl hand tools such as folding saw a set of loppers and hand pruners
    1 stihl set of 24 inch hedge trimmers

    crew 2

    2012 ram 4500 4x4 crew cab with 9 foot dump
    6x16 ft trailer with basket and trimmer rack and drop axels
    2013 exmark x series 60 inch lazer with trac vac system

    Then we have about 100k worth of stuff that doesn't go out on a typical lawn mowing day.

    Now, or when I started?

    Big difference.


    Sounds like you are just starting out from all the questions/threads posted.
    What someone else has may not be realistic for you to try to "copy".

    2012 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    5x8 Trailer
    Gravely Pro Turn 148
    Shindaiwa LE231
    Stihl KM 90 ( line trimmer and hedge trimmer)
    Shindaiwa EB633RT
    Lesco 2 Gallon Sprayer
    Assorted hand tools

    I'm gonna turn the KM 90 into a short reach hedge trimmer soon and buy a Shindaiwa T282 as a string trimmer. I'm also going to pick up some Jungle Jim's for the trailer so I can just use my truck bed for storing debris.
