im looking more at cub cadet mowers? has anyone had any experience with them?
I have found that you can get stihl worked on almost any where. I live in small town USA and i can take one of my stihl weed eaters to Ace and get it worked on the same day. I would go with the stihl because you can get them fixed almost any where.

I suppose it all comes down to how much i have at the end of the fall.

I dont plan on doing snow removal since im still in highschool (although i wish i could) waking up at 3 in the morning every morning to go plow a bunch of lawns and make it to school by 7 isnt in the cards, perhaps one or 2 neighbors that may be interested but nothing worth investing in a plow or anything for.

I honestly cannot wait for school to be over and i can graduate so i can offer so much more to my customers, school just limits my time i can be working and limits time i can be resting haha.

I will give the kombi system a good look. Ive been wanting to try it since i first saw the thing.

Perhaps my neighbor (one of the top lawn care providers in the area) has one hed be willing to lend for a day or so.

I appreciate the offer of letting me borrow it though andy

you guys have been such great help i love this board
No easy answer here, if you can afford it, it will be one of the best investments you have and will ever make because you can do so much with it but the key is it will stand whatever abuse you throw at it, in my case we have over 30 pieces of Stihl gear and I rarely run any of it myself so I need gear that can stand what the staff put it through and it does, never an issue.

The other key with this setup is is it offers so many options including blowing, trimming, edger, pruner and the list goes on.....probably one reason it is a hit with newer companies starting out, looking for quality but can't afford a piece of gear for each service this is Stihl's answer and an excellent idea by someone in marketing.
