Wow! Nice rig. How long is it? how much equipment do you carry in that? Does all your crew ride as 1 crew in the truck?

Thats it?? You have what two crews right? How do you only have 2 guys per crew?? I saw some of the accounts you have you gotta have more then 2 guys per crew, no? Around here most crews have 3 guys and that just for small residentails. ;)

Is that a 24' trailer? I love the signs on the side, how far away can you read that from?

Thats why I was asking. I saw he was selling a good deal of equipment but you never know.

Actually, he had TWO of these trailers. Pulled by two beautiful new trucks. With just 3 years in the biz, I think it was a typical case of just too much, too fast. There are still several listings on internet phone number sites for him, but they never stay up to date. I did find find this site though, that had a feedback remark that wasn't so good. http://local.yahoo.com/VA/Roanoke/Home+Garden/Lawn+Garden/Landscaping
Here are some other pictures of both rigs.... http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=165243

another example of someone NOT reading the thread and just looking at the first post. It really doesn't matter anyway, the dude is out of business. One thing I don't understand is how can you have that much equipment and fold? Was the work just not there or did they do a poor job when they did have the work?
I have enough equipment to mow trim and blow any property I get so if I decide to back off a bunch and take a 9-5 job, I can afford to keep everything I have and still make use of it at a later date. Man, with all the stuff he has/had it's no wonder he couldn't keep the doors open.

It all comes down to credit. many just over extend themselves, and/or put too many eggs in one basket. they land a big account or two to "justify" the advance purchase of alot of stuff, and then when th places throw them under the bus or sell them down the river to save 20 bucks a month,...the contract is all gone. Alot of these guys (most) that you see with these beautiful fascist trucks and trailers are extended on creditand pay ALOT more for the stuff than someone that purchases it for solid work they have already done.
In your case for instance,..The fact that you state that you "have enough equipment to mow trim and blow any property I get" is a concept we call putting the horse before the carriage. :)

Dang, bet if he kept the old F250, open trailer, and a reasonable amount of mowers, he'd still be in business.

I just look at it as a warning of what may happen. Just work hard don't over extend and do good work. Their work from the pictures shown looked to be top end. But I do question if they over extended them selfs when I saw their posts to sell a backhoe with 24 hrs on it and trailer. Then some mowers. If thats what indeed did happen it makes me feel a little more relaxed and content with my slow but steady growth.
