I do not know - I have several Snapper, Briggs, Echo, Dixon, Winston, Stihl etc... Haven't really thought of selling them bur we have no use for them. I have a coo JONSERED lighted one too.. We are getting ready to hang a huge Stihl Lighted Sign in front of our shop - We will wash in two telephone poles and center the Sign. The electric is already there for it. It is Cool and we will have our Business name on the bottom of it in Black Lettering - Let me know what u think.

And then there's the muddin truck, and the boat, and the golf clubs... lol. I'd be like a kid in a candy store in your shop!!

Yeah we do like the front mowers. We have 220-230 sites we service - 200-210 reg customers. We have a county that we service - thus the WAM's. Also we have a homeowners association @ 80+ acres we service. Anyway - Life is good.

UH - I love the JD Hydro Walk behinds but Our Guys will not use them. I have these two machines that just sit. Each one has 200 hours on them - The guys ride, Ride and RIDE some more - They drive me crazy.

what type or properties are u doing?

We are doing alot of residential and commercial properties on the Beach (Dare County, NC) but we also are doing a host of sites on a county contract and a huge homes association 80+ acres in Currituck County NC. The beach is inherently sandy and hard on equipment though.

Thanks man - I forgot the stump grinder, Timberwolf TW-5 Wood splitter and two trucks/equipment that were out on jobs when I took the pics. I got on a rampage and just started taking pics and found out it was easy to post on here so I did it. Wish more guys would post their equipment.

It is a 2500 w/ a 350. We love that truck, took it off the road to preserve it and restore it. it is a 1972 and carried firewood for about 5 years. As you can see we have not began restoring it yet - who knows if or when that will happen. It is a cool truck - it actually has AC that works.

What do you use to load the tub grinder?

We use the loader on the tub grinder. I did not take a pic of it but will if you would like to see it. Also, we use a deere 120 excavator cause the stock loader will not keep up with the speed of the hammers and conveyor.

No Question that the cub Tank m-72 rolls throuth alot of ground. This machine cuts - 33 hp Generac Engine. Deere f-735 is smooth and quality but does not even compare speed and maneuvarability. E i NC:rolleyes:

The 3 toros we have are all 52" decks w/ 20 hp Kohlers. We like them - they are the BEACH machines - operate in sandy conditions. The Cub Cadet is supperior to the Toros. I want to make sure that you arent talking about the yellow wing mower on the NPR. That is a Howard Price 1260 and to be honest we really love that mower - 40 HP diesel, wings mow ditches flawless and fast - saves time from string blading labor. Thanks, ERic:walking:

Well, it's like this, Since My guys cant seem to stop themselves from ripping the freaking things off the side of the trailers w/ trimmers in them - I do not use them any more. By them I mean the Guys that tore the stuff up and the trimmer traps. Man - it seems the bigger you get the more guys you hire and the more stuff they tear up. We have two guys that work in that shop all day to fix stuff that breaks and stuff that gets tore up. Makes me sick - How do you handle when guys tear up stuff - Negligence.??:confused:

The shop is a 60 X 80. Good luck - it can be done. I started 6 years ago w/ a 1972 gmc 2500 and a Bucket Truck. Go figure.:usflag:

be sure to NEVER EVER get rid of that awesome truck. I recently got my 1500 Sierra for $150, and when I drop a 350 in it, talk about power and dependibility to last you for ages:cool2: :weightlifter:
