                      fourseasonlawns said "buy the biggest and best of everything.
                      Anything from your weed-eater, edger and blower, to your truck and trailer.
                      the only thing biggest doesn't apply to, is your mower. but you better buy the best.
                      spend the money now, or spend it later in labor or repairs/replacement."
