time for everyone to say OMFG on reading mine.

We use as folllows:

2004 Nissan Frontier XE crewcab pickup with a 6 foot bed.
No trailer yet.

2 Weed Eater 22'' 500 Series Side Discharge Mulching Push Mowers Model # 961140015
1 Weed Eater FL20C gas powered string trimmer
1 Weed Eater gas blower model#: 952711937
thats mostly it.

We always carry 4 gallons of striaght gas, 2 gallons of oil/gas mix for the blower and trimmer.

As of now we mow about 35 lawns a week. never ever had a problem with weed eaters. some of our clients have fired bigger companies with zero turns cause they left rutts and caused bald spots to form in the yard and hired us.

this is only my second season in operation. so as time goes by we intend to upgrade to commerical grade equipment. but so far havent had an issues yet. and 1 of the weed eater mowers is 5 yrs old.

Heh. In order for others not to feel bad about what they use, I'll list my current lineup. It's somewhat "Craftsman-heavy" at the moment. LOL

(Damn, this is an old thread, BTW)

Truck/Trailer:
2001 Silverado 4x4 extended cab short bed w/cap
5x8 "Carry On" wire mesh trailer with wood sides
30"x49" 500lb. rated Aluminum "Mobility Wheelchair and Scooter Carrier" - Receiver mounted - perfect for hauling my snowthrower or mower when I don't want to use the trailer

Mowers:
Craftsman 21" self propelled mulcher/bagger mower- "Died" at end of last season after about 8-10 yrs of home use. Engine is fine - the deck broke where the engine bolts on!
(soon to be purchased for upcoming season) Toro Super Recycler 21" self propelled mulcher/bagger Model # 20092
Toro Recycler 22" self propelled mulcher/bagger (8 yr old "backup" mower)
Homelite 20" self propelled mower - mulcher only. This mower is about 20 years old, but only saw about 3-4 seasons of actual homeowner use. Great, lightweight unit

Misc:
Stihl FS90R 28.4cc string trimmer - attachment capable
Craftsman 25cc 215 Mph, 470 Cfm Gas Blower/Vaccum (hand held) Model# 358794770
Craftsman 25cc 22" "Bushwacker" 3/4" cut gas Hedge Trimmer Model #79634
Black and Decker 18v 22" cordless Hedge Trimmer (no laughing)
Black and Decker 18v String Trimmer/Edger (I said NO laughing!)
Black and Decker 18v cordless 6.6' Pole Trimmer w/18" trimmer head
A whole crapload of 18v batteries - LOL!
Mighty Mac 12P 8hp Chipper/Shredder - chips up to 3.5"
Craftsman 18" 42cc gas Chain Saw Model # 35191
Craftsman 14" gas Chain Saws (2) Old, non-running donated units that I plan to fix
Craftsman 26" 208cc Two Stage Snowthrower (w/power steering )


I think that's everything that isn't a hand tool.
