All you stuff looks like shitt!:)

Looks good man! Couldn't help but notice the arms on the CAT. NEw style or something? I have a 262 and the arms are straight in the back.

03-19-2007, 07:25 PM
The CAT is a vertical lift machine I think that is why the arms are different.

Very nice equipment, looks good and clean. Are you solo or do you have workers? What size mower decks do you have on the Deere and the other mower?

Looks Very nice!!...I love the Cat and the Dodge.....How do you like the cat and did you just buy it?

03-20-2007, 09:04 AM
I have employees. The Deere has a 60" deck and the Gravely (for sale) has a 48". I bought the CAT in July and i love it, it's been a great machine.

Nice stuff...do you comply with DOT regulations?? I didn't see any DOT #'s on there. Props to you if you've gotten around it somehow. I think it's pretty gay to ask small landscapers to have to comply like big truckers.

I own the white dodge and it is junk the tranny is about to go at 40,000 and the truck has issues with the oil pressure it is in the shop right now. We are looking to trade it in on a chevy 4500 no more dodges for me

03-20-2007, 10:42 PM
Here are some before and after pics. Sorry guys I had to.

03-20-2007, 11:03 PM
All I have to say about the beer bong is "HELL YEAH."

03-20-2007, 11:27 PM
Good times. Suprised you remember much of that. You know what wouldve made it better if your hemi didnt crap out 250 miles from home. lol

03-21-2007, 05:37 PM
That Dodge is the **** man! Love it! :usflag:

03-22-2007, 06:51 PM
wow very nice stuff, how long have you been in buisness???....looks like everything is brand new!!!!!wat you win the lottery??

03-22-2007, 11:29 PM
I've been in it for 5 years. I just got sick of buying used vehicles and being worried about past abuse. Alot of hard work and long hours got me some new equipment.

03-23-2007, 10:58 AM
good job keep it up....just wondering wh7y you went with the dodge in stead of the ford to match the dump....that 4-door dodge is a beast!!!!!

03-23-2007, 11:15 AM
WOW.....that setup looks AWESOME!!!

03-23-2007, 01:25 PM
I got a great deal through dodge. Now i'm really glad i went with the dodge because the ford has been letting me down. I've been thinking about trading it in a new dodge cab& chassis.

03-28-2007, 11:27 PM
The best part about the dodge is it has the factory navigation, a 4" exhaust from the turbo back, and a Edge Juice/Attitude+ Hot option. With an intake clutch and intercooler coming this summer. It will run a 15.5 quarter mile on level 5 of 6.

03-29-2007, 03:07 PM

I just looked back at this thread for the first time in 7 years! My company sure has progressed. I have learned a lot and made even more mistakes, but am pretty proud of what I have accomplished. None of which would've been possible without some of the great people that have helped along the way.

I bought land and built the shop in 2007, and have been expanding the equipment ever since.

Here are some more recent pictures from fall of 2013.

Wow great set up I like all the trucks parked in the shop like that, looks great!

I'm loving that shop. You have come a long ways. I saw your personal truck in the "lets see your truck" thread and was gonna ask you to post some more. But I'm happy now!

03-20-2015, 11:14 PM
keep the pics coming

03-21-2015, 02:35 AM
Congratulations on your success. All your hard work is definitely paying off. Any pics of recent work or the inside of your shop?

03-21-2015, 12:41 PM
Your trucks and shop look very nice. Do you do mostly residential landscaping or commercial? And other pictures of the inside of your shop?

03-22-2015, 01:00 AM
Getting ready to build a shop as well post some more pics of that shop and some details how much did it set you back!

03-23-2015, 09:57 AM
Here are some more pictures of the inside of the shop. Overall its 54'x96'. the left side is drive through for the trucks, 3 bay doors in front and back. The right side is approx 28x54' and that is insulated and heated with the lift and all of my tools. The middle approx 1,300 square feet is my office and living area and is finished just like a house.

The first pic is of the shop side with the lift. The second and third pictures are of the lean-to in the back of the property for material storage, equipment, and salt. It now has concrete floors and a full apron, and 2 bins built with mafia blocks.

Earthly, in the summer we are 90% residential installs, in the winter we plow 100% commercial.

Smitts, At that time there was only 1 GM vehicle, I traded a piece of equipment for it, and it sold me on the Duramax/allison trucks. I will post a plow pic from this winter (missing 1 of the older Dodges) and you will see we now have 3 GM's. So far so good, much lower repair costs last winter (mainly saving in front end parts).

And some excavating pictures. This is what I go out and do when the hardscape crew is on a large install job, and things are going smoothly. The track hoe was a rental on a large dirt moving job. The rock bucket was on a 4 acre clearing job. On that job we took 4 acres of dense woods with some 80' trees, cleared and grubbed it. It is now a beautiful horse pasture.

I have added a few pieces of equipment over the winter to more efficiently serve the existing customers we have. After the last could of weeks using the equipment I am happy with my decisions!

The Mack roll-off truck (dump truck, dumpster, and roll-back in one)

The Kubota KX080 taking its first scoop of dirt. It now has a thumb added.

Nice kubota!

Nice looking setup. How many commercial lots do you maintain for snow? I did around 15 this past year, and made do with 2 trucks. So I can't imagine how many lots you have to keep that many trucks busy!

05-10-2015, 10:58 AM
Ethan51, I maintain just under 100 commercial lots, most are small. I have 2 subs that help, but most are done in house.
