Default What equipment do you own

Hey Guys and Gals,

I am doing an experiment that requires some feedback from you all. For the first part I need as many people to post what lawn care equipment they use. Model numbers would be fantastic as well. Something like this will do...

RedMax BCZ2401s Line Trimmer
Exmark Lazer zHP
Echo Backpack Blower PB-650

and so on...

Thanks in advance,

Thanks in advance,
This is my 1st year.
  • Toro string edger combo
  • with blower, chainsaw, roto tiller, edger, and hedge trimmer
  • John Deere lawn tractor with 28" deck
  • 85# spreader
  • 48" core aerator
  • spring dethatcher
  • 48" drum roller
  • 5 x 10 open trailer
  • 8/ fiberglassw step ladder
  • 24' fiberglass extension ladder
  • 2 cu ft cement mixer
  • 1000w inverter on my jeep
Tractor has a 48" deck

Most of my equipment was purchased at auctions, sales, pawn shops.
As my business grows I will get better equipment when I can afford it.

I also clean structures for Real Estate Co's. Vaccume, steamclean carpets, etc. Most don't have power so I have the inverter for power.

I ended up buying the z-master and trailer. Also bought a 48" aerator. Now I really can't wait for mowing season!!!! I also order some screen printed shirts today and a trailer sign. I will post some pics of my setup and shirts in a few days!
