i have been trying to get a shot of a guy here. He is to quick for me, he is in his 60's i think. He has mercury sable station wagon pulling a 4x8 trailer that has 2x6's falling off the back. his trimmer which is electric hooked up to a marine battery and a cart. trimmer and blower(broom) are stored in the back seat. Cart he puts anywhere it will fit. Wife goes along and pushes the cart for the trimmer.

That pic reminds me when my cousin called me to ask if i would mow her lawn. Her lawn guy mowed her lawn with his lawn tractor and when he was done drove up RAMPS into his truck! Well he wasnt so luck when the rider slipped of a ramp and ended up on top of him. He was older and ended up in the ER and my cousin had an upside down rider in her yard for 2 days. hahah funny as hell.

I will. when i had to pick up a helper in the trailer court i thought it was a hispanic rig. I have seen them down side streets. About a month ago I was at a stop light half off in lala land thinking about what had to be done the rest of the day he passed right in front of me. My mouth was about on the seat of the truck and i was shaking my head.

There was a guy in his 70's or so last year that would do trimming for older residents with an electric trimmer, but he carried a 100 ft cord and had a new van. A grandson of one of them works for a decal place and put on his van windows " grandpas lawn service" no name or num. it was just a joke to say he appriciated what he was doing.

The guy from the top is out on sats only. I will have to try to have the cam phone handy. video would be even better.

I too am at a loss for words over seeing that first picture. Who the heck has their Christmas lights still up in July anyway?

Also, it looks like this is a duplex or apartment complex, so I'm sure an anon. complaint to the management about a commercial vehicle being parked there every night might be a cause for that to stop.

Whats the problem? That guy is upscale for Phoenix. I should get the pic of the guy on a bicycle pulling the 21" with the line trimmer, blower and trash can riding the 21". :laugh: Its Classic.

Then there is the guy with the Dodge dually crew cab that has all the seating area of the truck filled with irrigation parts. His labor ride in the bed and the guys look like flies on a horses azz when its loaded with burlap's of grass. They are holding on for dear life and the burlap's get piled above the top of the cab. :dizzy: That's Phoenix for you.

If you can't make it back home come to Phoenix, :walking: everyone else does. I can say that because my mother dragged me out here as a young man, I had no say in the matter.

I wouldn't do that. That's just wrong to suggest. Let the guy park at his place jeez.

Maybe the guy with the El Camino is doing the best he can don't knock someone who's is willing to work everyone can't afford a new truck + trailer + mower and be a overnight "Pro"

Oh, come on. The pic is funny and all, but do we really feel threatened by an operation like this. The guy might be an honest guy just trying to get by. The day I lose an account to a setup such as this is the day I hang it up.

I decided this guy has it figured out! So tonight I copied him and used my ghetto cruiser to haul my metro to a jobsite! Hey better then using the gas hog 2500HD!

Here are a couple pics from that job:
Sorry the sun was setting behind the building so its hard to see the stripes. With the mulch kit the metro doesnt stripe that well anyways.
(note: this isn't my account, just did it this one time helping out a fellow LCO)
