my property maintenance part of my company has grown alot over this last year. I started doing lawncare a few years back just for some extra income. i love it, it was a nice break from pounding nails, very relaxing. anyway started out just me my persoal lawn care equipment that i already had. riding mower, push mower and weed wacker. this past summer my accounts trippled.

i need new "professional" equipment. what are some brands i should be looking for and some i should be staying away from. in my area i have both john deer and toro dealers. Any info would be appreciated.

I like Shindaiwa for string trimmers and brush cutters, Echo blowers, Husqvarna chain saws, Honda mowers. Skag for zero turn.

ARS makes some fine hand saws/long reach pole saws.

And Corona's pro line of habd tools are pretty good. Fiskars has some nice pruners/loppers.
For your trimmers, check out Flexiblade made by Oregon Chain. That stuff is awesome. It's cut trimming time by about 25%.

And it can handle some pretty gnarly brush with the heavier lines.
