what i want to do would be to start a lawn company that is basicly 100% green or as close to it as i can. my thoughts are to have every thing electrice. weed eaters, lawn mowers, edgers, hedge trimmers im not sure how im going to go about it but i was thinking of a few ways to do this.

#1 build a solar set up with a big battery bank in the back of a truck to make it moble and plug every thing into the battery bank

#2 would be to build a solar set up on a truck and use it to charge the batteries that come with the tool and just have alot of batteries

i like the idea of being able to plug in or use a battery im not sure why all the battery powered tools are not electrice also

im going to have to gather alot more information but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

i ran across somthing on youtube the other day that i thought was pretty the pants made by filson company and are also called tin pants. i have never owened a pair but the guy on you tube really had alote of good things to say about them here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsYtHXE_AfU i would like to know if thay last for ever before i shell out a couple of hundred dollars for them.

the same guy has a video on boots and was talking about wesco and white's boots and if you send them in thay will rebuild them for about 200.00 dollars so my thought was to buy a used pair on ebay and have them rebuilt i priced white's boot at a local store and the pair i wanted cost 560.00 so about 600 with tax. if i can get a pair for 60.00 or less on ebay i will i will only have 260 dollars into a pair of boots that cost 600.00 not bad

any information on firehose pants would be very helpful also

i have been looking into this alot here latly their is alot of labor in putting together a trike and even more red tape to go threw to put it on the road. i have decided to go anther rout i want to buy a car/trike that is light and nimble that will be a good for highway use also the first car i found was reasonable priced it was a hmv freeway. it had alot of what i wanted. these car where built around 1980 thay had 12 14 16hp moters on them and got around 80mpg. but, thay only went about 40mph and from the information i have gathered the owners would not want to drive them at high way speed. the idea was to buy one of these that all ready had a tag on it and dot approved to build what i wanted with a higher hp moter geared to what i want. the owners that i emailed said that it was a great around town car and got good mpg but thay would not be willing to take it on the highway if it would go that fast and most of them said it was to unstable for those speeds. i wanted a trike that would not cost me aot of money and get good mpg. but, i also want it to be safe. so the hmv freeway was out. but a good around town car.

so i have been looking into electric cars/trike thay have alot of what i want thay are built light thay are fairly inexpensive with a bad battery bank. what i have been thinking would be to get a electric car take out the battery bank (most of the weight) and put in a small moter cycle moter. the next trike im going to be looking into will be the nmg sparrow it has alot of what i want it is built to go 75mph i think it will be the best vehicle to start with but trying to find one cheap might be a task. if i can find one for around 5-6k the build will be good but thay are going for much more than that. but im trying to keep my cost down so it will pay for its self alot faster.

if one knows of a light weight vehicle i am open for any suggestions i think the sparrow weight with out the battery bank round 800lbs about the same for the hmv freeway
