I wish my ceiling was high enough for a lift like that. Great trucks and setup. How many crews/ guys work out of your facility?

Yeah, she's a pretty good shop, looks better when its clean, which usually happens about once a month.

The walk behind on the lift is a Scag SWZ, we have about 16 of those, a couple of 36" belt drives, 6 Turf Tigers, 1 JD Z830A, one Toro Z-master, 10 walk behinds, a whole lot of two stroke equipment, and 2 mechanics. I'm the shop boss, and I have one other mechanic. I do most of the small engine work, he deals with the trucks and trailers, we split the heavy equipment and welding/fab work.

We do have a size requirement for the shop though. I'm 6'5", about 315 lbs, and the short guy is 6'1" and about 385.

GREAT company to work for.

Oh, we run 8 mowing crews, and 1 pruning crew. Presently have 4 or 5 Landscape crews, too. Oh, yeah, the Chemical Brothers, our 2 man fertilizing department. Landscaping runs out of a different yard, though. Which makes things a little more difficult logistically speaking. I will try to get more pics up later.

Just have ennjoyed looking at a lot of you guys' gear and your work. There is a lot of talent and pride shown in those pictures. Keep up the good work.

"Is that scag a swz or swzu?"

Could you please clarify where my mistake was? I'm not sure what kind of grammar you learned on the "short" bus......

Is that scag, a swz or swzu?

I'm in AP English - College level English in High School - and that "ain't" right.
You do know swz and swzu are scag models, right?
