Default Is this weed whacker good?

So I was wondering are my lawn mower, weed whacker good? The lawn mower I have right now is a brute 22" self propelled http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=8585731 . And my weed whacker that I am planing to buy this weeks is http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...ld+Power+Tools , i am more concerned that I am a getting a good deal on the weed wacker. This is because I got the 2 month lawn mower for free, cause the neighbor thought it was "broken".

Thanks,
Edvin

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I would think that no matter what product you buy from Walmart or Sears, it's not going to last as long as a commercial unit. So if you know this, you can weigh it all in your head of price vs. total hours you will be able to get out of it and make the best choice for you.

acutally my old lawn mower was 10 years old and bought from Walmart used every other week, and it work perfectly. My old weed whacker is 8 years old also bought from Walmart and it still works. Now you were saying to buy commercial grade equipment. My question is where can I buy those things?

That is easy... Go to google type in commercial lawn equipment and your zip code and you will get a list of dealers in your area. You can also visit the websites of the manufactures you are interested in (scag, toro, bob cat, bunton, etc). Most have a local dealer search function so you can locate a dealer near by...

Good luck!

How many lawns do you mow per week and what is the average size? I couldn't personally tell you if it's worth the money or not as I only buy commercial grade equipment, it many very well last you a long time, depends on a lot of factors.

doesnt the original post say the mower was free because the owner thought it was broken ?if you got it free,and you can fix it,then you didnt pay too much .try to get the receipt for it,as it states a two year warranty which might come in handy .
