hello all, im new to doing this independantly but not new to the industry.
i attended OSU/ATI after high school for turf mgt.
following college i worked for high end country clubs in Ohio, Florida, and North Carolina.

ive also worked at a landscape company and a lawncare company all in the last 10+ years. i love to make things look good.
mostly ive focused on landscape maintenance jobs but im finding people just associate that with mowing so i got a couple mowers. the sutech was a cheap alternative to a turf tracer and the ransomes a cheap (relative)alternative to a walker. now im ready for fall cleanups!
anyone had any experience with either of these machines?

my truck is an oldie but i think a goodie. its an isuzu/gmc nrr with a 396 cu. in. straight six diesel, no turbo. its got an allison 4 spd auto and will never be stressed with what i use it for. its a great platform to work out of and still gets 12mpg regardless of what ive got on it.

ive got some stihl two cycle equipment as well but weve all seen that stuff.
hope to glean some good info from ya'll in here so thanks in advance to the guys that have already been here. heres some pics of my stuff, let me know what ya think

Smart choice on the truck, best of luck. Looks really well thought out.P.S. is that an NPR or an NRR?

it is an nrr. i believe the npr's were four cylinder turbos. also, this is a bigger truck that can haul around 16k lbs. turns on a dime too.

LOL! I can tell, looks good. Welcome to Lawnsite. Looks like you're off to a pretty good start, and with your background and knowledge of turf I think you'll do just fine. Best of luck.
