yes! dump trailer makes quick work when you have a place to dump it! which I dont! I got real lucky on that job and new a guy that wanted it but it was like a 50min drive-spent 2hrs driving! most of the time its buckets/wheel barrows for me for edging debris

yep, most guys dont wanna pay though you would have to do something like 500 for the year and unlimited dumping I would think

Man, I can't believe how expensive everything is in your areas on the North Side. River gravel is $30 a yard around Ross Twp area. I can get it for $16.50 if I'm willing to travel 20 minutes or $20 a yard two minutes down the street. I feel bad for you guys. I'm sure everything is more expensive also. And no place to dump also. I'm glad I live more north where I do.

I have a neighbor that has a big compost pile and a brush pile. I also know a farmer with a burn pit and I can dump leaves in his fields after the corn is combined. I'm glad I don't have to pay for anything. I do feel bad though, for everybody that has to search for a place to dump.

Its all about where you go I can get gravel very cheap and mulch one place I can get $26/yard another its $40/yard

Yeah I would just compost it then sell it

never knew you needed that, why? figures they would make a license hard to get for something that is good for the environment

I hate trimming long areas like that. Anyways, any words of advice for me on the bedlining material being rolled on? I'm doing my truck bed and bed rails this weekend hopefully if I get some free time and want to do it the best I can. I plan to sand it all down and clean it real good and tape it off and whatnot. Just wondering if you had any input since you used the stuff on your white truck. Thanks.

Well I never used the stuff on a bed I like the drop in liners but yes sanding and cleaning are the tough part but have to be done very well! I did 2 coats for mine but I would do 3 for the bed. also wear old clothes and put something down if you are doing it on concrete or something the stuff is nasty! good luck:waving:

Yeah I'm sanding it down right now. I already cleaned it today but I'm going to get in it with a scrub brush tomorrow and scrub it really good to get all the dust out and dirt. Hopefully it goes ok. My biggest concern is getting a nice straight line when I do the top of the bed rails.

Get a good auto-body masking tape. They even have one with a wire/string for doing edges like this. If you use a normal tape from your parts store, make sure you pull it off before it is tooooooo dry.

You gotta no the right suppliers:) They have a have pile of the stuff they will also make a topdress mix of 2 parts top 2 parts mushroom 1 part course sand.

I like the top/mush mix I just started using it this year its a bit more expensive but grass grows nicer in it rather than plain topsoil I try to sell it to customers more

Sometimes when I topdress lawns I don't use straw personally I don't like it I just rake the seed in. Anytime I have used straw I never had any problems because I just put a very thin layer of it on with no clumps of straw laying around.

Just got in with an investment company here in town so hopefully I made the guy happy with a cleanup I did for him today and they keep me and use me more often. They want a replacement because they're not happy with the current company doing it.

yeah it is a pain sometimes some will pull down together sometimes it wont. Plus I fear the whole time there is posion ivy/oak/sewmac in it:hammerhead: there was alot there I just cut them at the base and sprayed with weed killer.

I did some price shopping last year and I am charging just about the same as everyone else I shopped for the cheapest prices on mulch/stone-then sell it for a higher price plus delivery fee usually $20-$50 depending on location. I get a decent amount of calls but only do one every so often.

Looks like you did a nice job on it. I agree though I would have done it out of wood though. My neighbors had one like that and it got wrapped around a tree the first big storm we had. Anyways looks nice. On the quick 36 does the drive system only have one hydro pump and it just splits the flow from that single pump? IV never really paid attention to those.

Yeah its secured down but still seems flimsy. a good storm, snow, or small branch I think will hurt it...
One hydro put has a differential-it sends all the power to one wheel at a time, which ever wheel needs the power

Wood is way easier- build the base frame in the walls some t-11 on the sides and the roof- shingles might take a little long but in the end its a way better stronger shed

I agree. A small branch or something will kill that thing. A few months after my neighbor put one up like that. Strong wind blew his trampoline into it and tore it up pretty bad. Then he kinda fixed it somewhat and a few months after that we had some straightline winds and it got wrapped around a tree. That was some nasty wind. You may remember that one. I was cleaning up after that for about two weeks. I'm really wanting either a Honda 21 or a snapper 21. I just ordered a new handle for my cub cadet this morning.

Yeah, that's Pittsburgh for you. I used to do a lot of hill work in the North Hills and a little in Mt. Lebanon a few years back. Always looks nice when it's done and cleaned up though.

trimmer, I do have that new echo edger I got in june but its a split boom, it stays on the trailer with the edger attachment until I need it for something else

yep just a string trimmer

A plant look closely a couple leaves are actually burnt:confused:

And the worst, I have heard of this happening before but never thought it could, this is my only lawn it happened on and just the front. Luckily this house is vacant and not on a major street customer totally understands too which is really good I have been skipping it this was like 3 weeks ago its gotten better though

What a horrible summer for grass! I guess the positive will be all the lawns we'll be replanting this fall. Hopefully it will rain for that.

Here's one I haven't cut in 4 weeks. Took this today. Trimmed the edges that had nutgrass/crabgrass.

Nobody has sprinklers? All of my weekley customers have underground sprinklers. I have 2 bi-weekley lawns that don't.

That would be a major hit to the pocketbook. Hope ya get rain soon so you could at least finish the season mowing a little bit.

Man that sucks guys. Its not been too bad here (knock on wood). It got pretty dry there for a while but it rained a ton and everything perked back up. We've been fortunate, some of them got hit pretty hard though when it was 100+ every day. But everything is good now, thankfully it didn't last long at all here.

I know I can speak for g.m. and myself on this one but not many if any in my area (irwin/n.huntingdon) have true dedicated sprinkler systems. Some may drag the hose out once in a while but thats about it :hammerhead:

Yeah, it's pretty bad a little north of you guys also, but none of mine are "burned." They're brown and slow-growing, but not as bad as the pic GM showed.

I guess this is repayment for last August...I got 5 cuts on a few of my lawns last August.

no like zak said there are not to many I have a few that have older irrigation systems that dont work broken pipes etc or just dont want to use them. Some people water not many although last time I was at home depot they were sold out of every single sprinker!

Ouch.....now that's freaking dry. My lord.

Looks like your gonna have to wait till next season to make up for that.

Good idea getting those brakes done before plowing...I heard usually for you guys out there that when there is a real dry season like what your experiencing, that there is a whallop winter in the foreground.

I heard that it's suppose to stay warm right up to Christmas, not to bust anyones bubble.
But I think if you live where you get a lot of lake effect snow, then you will have a good winter. Because the lake is so warm, especially lake Michigan, since it's still in the mid to upper 60's.
But you're near lake Erie or Ontario, I don't know exactly how close, but you still could get some lake effect snow, still very possible
