Thanks for the ad. I'll try and minimise the dumb questions but bare with me
So getting the ball rolling on a new venture. Already running a pretty successful window, gutter & pressure cleaning business. Looking at getting a 2nd ute on the road couple days a week doing lawns/basic gardening. Will 'soft start' only offering to existing customers and their friends/rellos, over the coming months, and then hopefully go hammer and tongs with advertising come spring, if needed.
Pretty set on the Honda HRU216m3.
Don't have the budget or inclination to have more than one mower to start with (the toro 30" with Kawasaki motor I just learned about today at GYC sounds great, but I think it would be a pest on smaller lawns)
But then reading through older threads the Victa Mulchmaster sounds good too. But from what I can tell its really only the chute that makes it better than the honda?? And I love the blade brake on the Honda
Also the Honda is on sale at GYC Mowers now for $1550, sounds good to me. So still leaning strongly towards the honda.
My biggest unsolved mystery as of yet, is what brush cutter and hedger to get.
As much as my OCD would love to have all matching Honda gear, I'm leaning towards a stihl or some other 2 stroke, for lightness. Also, the ability to run at different angles.
But this is the section where I have done the least amount of research (man it takes a lot of time!!) so hoping I can get some suggestions on what others have bought and liked an disliked. So I can make the best choice. Without spending days more reading.
I love the idea of a combi - something that can be a whipper snipper 90% of the time but then switch heads over and use it for hedging when needed.
TIA for any help
