Well, here it is. All cleaned up, ready to be put away. I can actually say that all the things pictured here are mine. The truck is a 1998 Silverado. It has about 98,100 miles on it. The car is a 2005 G35 coupe. It currently has 11,000 miles on it. There's a honda atv with a 52'' plow.. The rest should be in my Signature. Let's hear some Comments or Questions... - Peter

Looks like you do mostly smaller properties in neighborhoods and downtown. Thats a nice Exmark, is it new? Can we see the inside of the trailer?

Awesome!

Got a question.

What ATV is that and where did you get that hydrolic plow for it?

I am looking at a Suzuki at the local dealer and they have a blade that ties into the winch.

I would rather have the hygrolic.

Where did you find the metro. I never seen a metro that looked like a turf tracer. How new is it. I even looked at exmarks sit for it.

Nice clean equipment. Looks like you have gotten a lot more equipment since you had your picture in Turf.

Thanks for all the comments guys..

Yea, the properties i work on are small. Anything bigger than a 36'' wouldn't work, nor would it be efficient. I use my 21'' mowers just as much as the 36''. The exmark is actually i think 3 years old. I just keep my equipment looking new. I don't beat it to death. This year i put just under 100 hours on it. I'll take some pictures of the inside, but it's not loaded up. I have my atv/plow in it for the winter time.

Awesome!

The atv is a Honda Rubicon 500. I bought the plow on ebay. I'm pretty sure blackline is the only plow who makes the hydraulic lift.

Where did you find the metro. I never seen a metro that looked like a turf tracer. How new is it. I even looked at exmarks sit for it.

I bought the metro about 3 years ago at my dealer. It's actually called a metro HP. The regular metro is a fixed deck. This one is a floating, so i guess thats where the HP comes from.

How many accounts do you have?

Thanks, yea i have grown quite a bit. I have anywhere between 34-38 accounts.

Nice equipment!! Did you start college yet or are you just working with your business? How much did you get your Stihl hedge trimmers for up there in NJ, our dealers down here want over $300 almost!!! It is a Stihl though:)

Hah, yea i wish i was working with just my business. Honestly, college is holding me back. My business could be doubled its size if i wasn't in school. This is my 4th semester, going onto my 5th. I don't remember how much the hedge trimmers were, but they are definitely over 300.00. I think it was close to 400.00 but i may be wrong.

I am looking into a 6X12 trailer that you have. How much did the trailer cost you and how much room does it have in it with a 36" and a 22". How much could you groow. Coudl you fit 2 36"'s and a 22" mower? thansk in advance. LawnInOrder

The trailer was either 2500 or 2800 plus tax and registration. I had the opportunity to buy out a landscaper in my area, but then i would have to drop out of college, so i declined his offer. The way i have it arranged is i have a table/bench top in the front. The 36'' is on the left hand side, and on the other side i have the edger, john deere, and the honda right behind one another. Im sure you can fit the 2 36'' and the 21'' but it depends how you arrange it. There's enough walking room between the 36 and the 21 to get from the back of the trailer to the front.

You definately have some good equipment there man, now you just need a camera that takes decent pics so we can see all that nice equipment better!! If that is a 6x12, then there should be no problem putting a 36" and a few small mowers in. I have a 6x12 enclosed like yours and have a 48", 36", and a 21" in there and still have plenty of room for other stuff. How old are you and where you going to school? Nice car too, is it yours? I take it your a Honda guy?:)

The camera i have is great. It's a 5 megapixel sony. I had to realllllly shrink the pictures for this site to accept them, so maybe thats why its blurry. I'm 19 and i got to NJCU. Yes, the car is mine. Almost paid for.. Yea, when it comes to power equipment i almost allways go honda when i have the option. They have proven to me that they are the best. I've never had a problem with them in the years that i have been using them. I took out my snowblower that has been in storage over the summer. I added gas.. waited maybe 3 seconds, pulled it once.. and it started. I would rather pay the extra money for something i know is proven to work.

Here's a picture for your enjoyment. We went to an atv park up in Pennsylvania and there was this river. WE all wanted to cross this river and me, of course having the only utility atv, prob the biggest one, had to cross it first. Cuz if i couldn't make it, they sure as hell wouldn't.So i went about half way in barley made it across, and then i had to make it back. So here's the picture of me making it back, or least trying to make it back. This wasn't even the deepest point of the river. So.. do you think i made it? Or did the river take me down?

Why do you have that stupid flag on there?

12-22-2006, 03:49 PM
wow, looks real good. i like to see clean equipment. when you spend so much money on gear its good to take care of it, I'm the same way. good job. hopefully your work looks as good as your equipment. I'm sure it does.

The flag was so they could spot him drifting downriver......

It's the only requirement by the park. Without it, you can't ride.

The equipment doesn't stay clean during the year, but i do blow it off every day and do my very best at not abusing it. I paid way to much to abuse it. I hope my equipment will last me a very long time, which at this rate, it will. I am very strict on oil/oil filter changes. I use only Mobil 1 synthetic oil in all my machines.

haha.. like i said, it was a requirement. There are cables about 20 feet down from where the picture is that will stop anything if it were to drift down the river.

Ah, Understandable. I didn't think anyone would voluntarily put that on.

right on. i realize that it doesnt stay clean all the time. how could it if you use everyday. but you do clean it sometimes, and thats what im talking about. theres companies here that have never cleaned their mowers since they were new, they look real trashy now. good work, keep it up.
