I could and did for one aeration last fall when i didnt have the jd home. I could weld a bracket on but just never got around to it really is not at the top of my list. the roller might be a bit heavy but I am sure it would do it
Nice job and equipment man.
thanks man

I been out for a little while did a nice mulch job finally today

Jd is probably better for it but would be more convient for me since the JD is usually at camp

Usually I use the stick edger or wb edger then got and cut them all out with a shovel. I also use those d handle edging shovels. Then after that I use the string trimmer to cleanup the edge before mulch

Had to use my tiller attachment the other day and had an oops.The homelite split boom took a crap and broke the shaft. I have been buying echo attachments here and there for my 2 PAS trimmers but still haven't got the tiller or hedge trimmers.
So I picked up a echo tiller attachment

McG_Landscaping
04-09-2011, 11:09 PM
Nice! Have you had a chance to use it? I realize that I should have bought one of those motors like that with different attachments instead of the straight shaft. I am sure I will see one in my future!

Haha that looks like the Ujoint on my 94, the tiller. I just dropped the trailer Friday night, left the shop and the ujoint literally snapped right in two. So now I have to get a new drive shaft on monday for that truck

Yeah i tried it out real quick out our house on some grasss it chewed it up nice. I have 2 straight shafts w/o the split boom which I use for regular mowing also

U joint? hmm never heard chevys dont have them:rolleyes: haha that sucks my couple buddies with fords always seem to be breaking u joints
Sweet, I've never used a long-handle tiller like that, I've only ever rented mantis tillers. Hopefully it works out well for you.
Yeah my other one on the cheap homelite did a great job so I figured this would do the same or better. I never used a mantis but I think these do just about the same
Looks good,nice tiller.

Oh yes quite a few things in the works for this year if I ever find what I want and have time to look-they will all be used nothing much new I don't think
Do you charge by the yard or by the hour for topdressing?
By the job, I estimate how much I will use and how long it will take to put down then come up with a total price.
Lookin good,nice job.
thanks

I just sat down and counted 46

Okay Brad, I've seen some of your videos on youtube with your truck's warning lights...pretty awesome might I add. I want to install some Whelen TIR3's (about 8 total) around my truck and then hook them up to a switch box in the cab. How hard is it to wire all the LED lights together. They seem fairly simple and I'm pretty sure I can get one of my buddies who knows way more about wiring than I do, to help me get it all wired up (or I can bring it to my mechanic but I'd like to save a little money and do it myself). Any advise or tips? Feel free to PM me if you'd rather.

Basically I don't want anyone to really notice the LED's until I flip them on. I hate not having any warning light(s) on my truck when backing into driveways on busy roads.

Haha thanks, well they each have a wire to sync them together so if you want them all on one switch you just wire them all together with the sync wire and a positive/negative. They also have a pattern wire some people don;t but I ran that wire to a separate switch to be able to change the pattern any time.
You can sync them a number of different ways like four for the front on one switch and four in the back on another switch. Just alot of wires to run etc. I am by no means an expert when it comes to wiring-wiring can be frustrating.
They have a set of directions and I just took my time lasts summer and wired them up. You have to think where exactly you want to mount them though there is not a whole lot of places to hide them though. I would look at the whelen led stobes for the back maybe. Some tir3s for the front and something in you back window

I have a buddy who has done some wiring for emergency lights, so I hope he will have some time to help me when I start this. I'm going to do, a license plate bracket on the back with 2 lights, 2 lights on each side step, and 2 lights in the grille. I have it pretty well thought out as to where the lights will be mounted. I just hate doing electric work.

Thanks for the help!

If I told you guys there would be no suspense on here! :) lol I am not even sure really what the next purchase will be, I have quite a few things that I want but trying to figure out what I really need. Like I said though I haven't had much time for looking for what I want/need Work has been pouring in double what it has been previous years. I am just trying to keep everything I have working etc and getting these jobs done which is going to take until June!

ya just try to keep them out of places they could get broken/smashed if they did some wiring thats good, just remember to put fuses in and you should use relays though I usually dont

Hey Brad, I'm pretty sure you posted the answer to my question in your thread before, but I have no idea where to look...

What do you use behind your seats to organize your tools? Where did you get it and how much did it cost? I'm looking for something like that for my MMC truck. They really appreciate employees to take care and organize their trucks and I know it'll make things easier for me. The only thing is, I hate being cheap, but I know I won't be reimbursed for it, so I want to keep my cost down (unfortunately). I don't want to blow money into a truck that's not mine, but I want my job to be easier and I know I'll be rewarded for organization and cleanliness.

Well the ones in my blue truck were just aluminum box things my neighbor was throwing away but the nice organizer in my white truck is from truck and stuff on rt 60 it was fairly cheap but I had to screw it in not sure if they will mind or not? but you can put a bunch of little tools in and such

most I have been ok Screwed up 2 but they were way in the back homeowner didnt care. It takes alot longer you have to blow clumps, and tire marks. have to bag some and mow some with the 21" that I would normally use the stander. Also a good raincoat helps! And I wouldnt be doing it without that big blower you can actually get walks cleaner in the rain than you can the day after a big rain. Also Gotta be careful where you 'dump' your deck at.

Mine has taken quite a beating over the years as well, Been dropped of the trailer, had a tank of straight gas run through it at one point by someone who was working for me.....just keeps on going! starts on 2-3 pulls but its starting to smoke I think the rings are going on it.

Good question, yes the stripes will be the same then but I would have been fine with a 52 too. but if I keep both standers to one side of the trailer I can still fit both push mowers along side of them this wouldnt happen with the 52.

Also I have no need for a bigger mower I don't do many enormous lawns or anything this one was brought to do better on hills more power etc and also because I really cant afford downtime I wanted to have 2, I originally didn't plan on getting this mower until this coming winter but After nearly doubling my lawns I needed it now.

Picked it up at Phelps power equipment in coraopolis

I really don't know why you do it and think your the best at everything. By no means is my work the best. I come on here to show my company from the beginning to everyone who enjoys seeing pictures. I enjoy seeing others who do great work and try to build my company like others and take any advice they give into consideration. I also come on here for networking I have met a lot of nice people on here and have become good friends with many of them.
Yes my guy that works full time uses the stander. He has worked for other company's and knows how to run them I still do most of the mowing though
Those black wheels make them so munch better.

Thanks oh yes big difference they changed a lot. The whole machine is bigger: bigger tires etc it seems to hols hills better and not spin tires as much. the hieght adjustment works differently, bigger engine moved the battery, spring platform, actual floating deck, whole new deck design and more!
nice mower we don't have any wright dealers in my area.
Thanks ya we don't either we have a newer dealer about 15 minutes away and that's where I got this. Another one about 30 minutes away closed up last year and the next closest one is 40 minutes away. But these mowers are still extremely popular here

Do you have any plans to add a Backhoe to the Bobcat? So much more you could do with a Backhoe and really build your business up larger!

You have a nice business. Keep up the good work! :usflag:

Thanks, most likely not I would rather get a mini excavator right now I know a guy that I just sub the work to. I really haven't got that much type of work so unless I got a big job or found a good deal on one, no.
I do however would like to get a brush hog and a few other implements eventually

A mini excavator would be fine! You could use your Bobcat to move dirt if needed. When you get equipment like that, expect to get more jobs in excavation!

You can make some good money with a bush-hog too!

Oh yes it does get overloaded but its a great trailer. The reason I orginally went with that size was because I only had a half ton and even then loaded it was rough. I would probably get a 6x12/14 no but that would even be heavy for my 3/4ton truck. I plan on getting a dump truck and keeping the little dump trailer also. Alot of my mulch jobs were 5yards so it was a good size, there have been times I could have used bigger but for the most part it has been awesome

Thanks yes much cleaner!

Yeah I know I could get more work but I am not ready to go there just yet, I got one more year of college I don't want to grow to fast with the company. Yeah I did a little advertising for brush hogging and haven't got anything I am hoping I can get into that a little though.

Yeah the plants had to go, I don't hate those though I like them better than regular ornamental grasses though. I think those plants look good in river rock beds

Oh because I brought that to load salt then I would have no way to load salt. Bucket is not a ton of use on a big site and you cant put a huge pusher on it. The storms we get around here are all usually smaller compared to other places

mulch ya a bit I never get it delivered but if I have leftover I put it in the salt bin or sometimes in the spring I was buying some during the week and dumping it there to have it for weekend jobs especially sundays when the yard is not open at all

Nice job using the bobcat, must of saved some time, I mulch a whole development and the mulch was dumped at the bottom entrance so I got the bobcat and relocated the mulch into the beds, helped so much because the road was very steep not including how steep the drives were. The street alone was a quarter mile... anyway smart idea on using your machine.

sweet i remember you saying they had 2 ya it looked nicer than isuzu but they look similar are they still out doing mulch? I got 3 more jobs already to mulch this month I still see companies doing mulch everywhere I hardly do anything after middle of July I think I did 1 last year in august adn one or 2 in the fall

I think we were supposed to get to it earlier, but I think there might have been a payment issue. There's actually one place we don't mulch until about middle of August, but it's an apartment complex for a university, so that actually makes sense.

Its sweet I mowed in the rain this morning and some pretty thick lawns man it is a big improvement over the old deck although I never thought the old deck was terrible. I got one little clump to blow out today otherwise that was its I really like it I just don't like how the deck bounces so much because the motor is mounted on top and it is an actual floating deck unlike the old rapid hieght standers.
