What is the largest town near you? Check for restaurant suppliers. Most usually have some type of used equipment showroom. There is a discount for the used equipment, but some of it can be over priced for used. Also, have you checked business auctions in your area? That is where we picked up most of our equipment. You may have to drive a ways to pick it up, but the savings can more than pay for the transportation.

What kind of dish washing area are you going to have?

I don't know if there is a brand of grease trap that is better than another, just make sure it is well made. We bought our at an auction also.

Google "restaurant auction (your state)". Ex. restaurant auction MN

You can probably find most equipment you will need at these.
