Man, that's terrible. Not so much the money, but you probably feel 100 times more vulnerable than you did before it happened. It's just a kick below the belt.

Will insurance cover it? I'd be clearing out of that shop faster than ever. I would just be way to nervous to stay in there after that. Sorry to hear about that though Brad. It'll catch up with em some day.

Shop must be in a bad location...move some where more secure and get a few video cameras...I park in a yard with no fencing but we have a lot of video cameras and its in a good area, never had an issue.

A few months back I had someone break into my garage (which is in a nice neighborhood) stole basically everything little they could. (blower, trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer, air compressor, push mower, stihl chain saw( i was really pissed about that) ) It really made me mad and its not like people couldn't have noticed that the people were taking it guess they just thought it their stuff. I just makes you feel taken advantage of because you work work work and they steal it all in 10 minutes.

Thats the same method I use for aeration. I have been considering purchasing one but I'm not real sure its worth the investment. I ended up towing the aerator with my stander last week because the Husqvarna is down again. It did the job just fine, I actually liked the zero turning radius pulling the aerator.

Sometimes the little jobs are the onces that make the most money.

Look at it this way if you have a small yard say 8k square feet and you charge 30 bucks. this yard takes you approx 10 min with 2 guys. Youcant make that kind of production and keep the price high with a place thats 3 acres. Sometimes the smaller jobs are better. But in some cases the bigger jobs are. Just depends on the job.

Plus alot of holidays on mondays therefore I do not mow on monday. So maybe he did not have other work for that day and decided to take a little job just to get out and work and make a little cash.

agreed. sometimes you do extra things for really good customers just to keep them happy. I am plowing one driveway this winter that is a bit out of my way, but they are a great customer, I do the lawn (which is a great lawn and I make a good profit on it), spring cleanup, mid-season trimming and weeding, fall cleanup, and they never complain, always pay on time and have referred me to a few other jobs. So to me its worth going a little out of my way to plow for them to keep the customer, thats just the kind of things you do for good customers.

I suppose...I have a great client base and all but 5 are full maintenance.

Brad, you're the one who said you did it for extremely discounted prices...so ya that comes across as doing it dirt cheap.

Good luck with your business.

I can discount things to where I still make enough. I don't do things cheap let alone dirt cheap. cheap and discounts are 2 different things

Sometimes the little jobs are the onces that make the most money.

Look at it this way if you have a small yard say 8k square feet and you charge 30 bucks. this yard takes you approx 10 min with 2 guys. Youcant make that kind of production and keep the price high with a place thats 3 acres. Sometimes the smaller jobs are better. But in some cases the bigger jobs are. Just depends on the job.

Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but why do you guys even unload for $30?? I don't care how small, if I can't get $50 minimum I will leave my stuff on the trailer. With one exception. I mow an auto parts store for $35 that takes about ten minutes because I get all of my parts and such at cost...It pays in the long run.

Around here there is ALOT of competition also I am solo so no overhead. It all works for me very well. I did not take offense to what you said. Everyone lives in different areas. :waving:

25 used to be my minimum now its 30. For the tiny lawns you can't get much more around here most guys do them for 15 or 20. Lawns at least around me are lowballed pretty bad I am luckly to have the customers I have the average size lawn here is $35 and when you can do 2 in close to an hour thats pretty good.

True, through the summer I run a crew of 4 mowing full time. I try to stay on that crew, or have my foreman there. Meanwhile we will have a crew running dirt work. Bobcat, dump truck, trackhoe, ect doing new lawns. Also try to keep some body bush hogging most of the time. Around now I lay everyone off except maybe one guy and I do the hit and miss mowing, and stay busy with bobcat work, and line up drainage and concrete/pavement renovation jobs for winter. I also get caught up on farming...

Holy crap, that's awesome.

Why'd you decide to go with Bobcat over any other brand? Just curious.
Thanks, glad you asked, I wanted a tractor more than a skid right now, it was basically between John deere and bobcat I really liked kubotas too but JD and bobcat were top.
looked at jds talked to a guy he said he would call me the following week after he talked to the local rep to see if there was any inecentives coming. never did I sent an email never got a response. The bobcat salesman responded fast all the time (even though he was late a few times when we met) emails and phone calls were quick and I talked him down twice on price. Bobcat had a little more options on the machine. If JD had got back to me and had been about the same price I probably would have went with that But the bobcat is definetly a nice machine and I am happy
what'd that run ya been looking for a loader??
ratehr not discuss the price of it, i put some down and financed the rest to build buiness credit but yes had been looking all summer no deals what so ever on skids here and I really wanted a tractor/loader more thats just what I like but definetly will get a skid down the road. And all the tractors/loaders used were junk or overpriced I never saw one piece of equipment worth going to look at
you're gonna load you're little tailgate salter with that?? haha

Nice lil tractor though, hope you put it to work!

Also I have more versatility with the 3 point hitch so I could get a brush hog and box blade and do stuff like that in the summer if I can find the work. I didnt totally rule skids out if I found a decent used one at a good price I was getting it but there was nothing in the used market for skids or compact tractors i looked all summer. I dont hate skids as I will definetly need one someday probably in a few years, but this is what I wanted now.

Yes both should be out I got one big one that both trucks will be on I dont know if my dad will be out the whole time I am or not I am waiting to here from 3 other contracts and any more that might call when the snow flys so we will see. The Bobcat will not be plowing its will be at the shop for loading salt should we have a storm like last year:) it might be some help stacking/hauling. Me and my dad really wont take turns I do what I can do and if its bad he will be out too plus maybe doing anything that might need done if I get stuck in class
Those backup lights look sick Brad. I need to add some to my truck. Gets hard to back up a trailer down a dark alley with barely any light.
Thanks and yeah it does Ill help you put em on if you needed I got the cheaper ones from harbor frieght but pepboys has a nice pair to for 25bucks
What brand of backrack is that
That is the safety rack style rather than the regular back rack/pro rack
Hey boss, do you know about how much your telehandler weighs?

And of course by "telehandler" I mean tractor.
Like 3k pounds I believe plus the loader so probably like 3500lbs

pedals for forward and revese no shuttle but that is how my uncles forklift is. The pedal for revers though you use you heal its a little tougher to get used too because I was used to my JD and uncles kubota where the F/R pedals were right next to each other

Well thanks for chimming in and Thanks for the nice comments, yeah I was happy with my website but all the pictures etc were from last season I have so many nicer pictures and things to put on there and have been wanting to do it for a while hopefully sometime in december or so I can find time to do that.
I would have to say customer realations, I am actually a rather shy person especially public speaking and being in places where I dont know anyone, but when it comes to buisness I can deal and talk with everyone no problem I dont know why it just is I guess its confidence in being the boss, but anyways I always try to be nice to customers complimenting on things they have had done to their house, wishing them merry christmas, asking how vacation was, thank them for things etc. I also am always on time, return phone calls promptly, and show up. I try to be professional and reliable even though I am young and look younger than I am. I always advertise that I am professional and reliable, I have had many people thank me for showing up returning calls, getting back with estimates, prices, and answers fast and even calling people back saying I casnt do a job its too far etc.I guess i do all this because business is always number one to me I am always thinking business and always get paper work etc done before school work, many people criticize me even family saying I work too much need to get a girlfriend it really gets annoying because most of the time these are the same people that wish they had money and a job they like. My busniess is what makes me happy and I enjoy doing this kind of work:) I have very high expectations for myself and for buiness down the road:waving:

I glanced through some of the thread and you have done quite well for yourself and really gained a lot of new "toys".

You seem to have a lot of ambition and I can really see you going far in this industry.

My busniess is what makes me happy and I enjoy doing this kind of work:) I have very high expectations for myself and for buiness down the road:waving:

Sounds like me with the whole putting business first, I also am criticized especially by my family and former friends, notice how I said former, because if they're like your friends and complain you work too much yet they hate their jobs & wish they made the money I make, they are not going to be my friends. No point in having people around you that dont support you. I basically said (in a nice way) to the family members that say I work too much to kiss my ass. I dont have a wife or kids or even a gf nor do I find a need at this point in my life (I'm 19) leaving all my time for going to college full time and running my business, racing motocross and hanging out with my friends (most are other landscape contractors) when I get the time on weekends.

I'm with you 110% on enjoying what you do. I tell people I worked a 14 hr day in 90 degree weather and they say "oh man that's gotta suck!" my response is "actually I enjoyed just about every minute of it, beats the hell outta working as a secretary or something inside and boring and the money I made makes it even more worth it."

yep some friends that were being rude I just stop talking to them and then they realized how much I do for them I also told them life is too short to put up with stuff like that and people that dont respect me I dont need to be around. I do alot of things for people and most of the time all I ask for is respect and cant even get that.
but i do have a few good friends from highshcool that respect me and even if we dont talk and hang out all summer they would still be there for me. It is nice to have friends in the buiness but i dont know to many around here. I know Jpeg and a few others wish I could meet some more but most are older guys around here lol

Looks good but after a good rain most of that will prolly wash out judging by the slope.

yup, like these guys said, i worked every day till dark got to 7 days a week with that for quite some time when i was building up what my dad had started as a part time money maker. i liked the work, and the dedication was needed in order to really get it going before adding other people to work for you etc.

i loved it, but gradually as we have grown, i work less hours per week(although it is usually 50-65 depending on the time of year and weather. it used to be way more like you do i am sure.
not only do i work less, but i work less hard with more money comes better tools for the job.

i like what you are doing there, but the mulch job i am sure you know that it will wash. do they know that? were they on a budget and will add more later or what? i am in no means critisizing you, i am just getting info for conversation.

it is steep but it should be pretty good I have done a decent amount of slopes like this and havent had any problems. Hopefully it will bind together over winter

yes deffinetly

not really People are not going to pay a bunch of money to have that done. If they asked I would have done it

I really dont work a whole bunch but by no means do I start each day at 8 and am done at 4, just gets busy with classes etc. But in the spring and winter when its snowing I work a ton. I dont think it will wash a ton like I mentioned I do these a bunch and yes they were on a budget they are going to try and put the property up for sale so they wanted the front looking decent

thanks yeah I did that big job in august/september. the drain was already there just added gravel. they have a spring or 2 up on the hill that causes alot of water to come done. that much has been holding besides some from me walking on it this wall trying to blow leaves and pine needles. No had a helper for that job-took about 2.5 days
Looks good.nice job.i like it.
thanks

not really drainage would have to be at the bottom. I really would have liked to build a wall with a drain behind it but that was not happening

Looks very nice Brad. Way better than before. However I do not think the mulch will wash down but you might have some little creek like rain tunnels in it if you know what I mean. But overall looks really nice big improvment.

yes I no exactly what you mean we will see, I told them they might want to put a light coat on in spring to make the color stand out if they didnt sell it. like I mentioned before I am hoping it will all justpack down/together over winter

no well at least i dont have one, they are legal here as far as I know and never been stopped or had anything said. I dont drive on the road blasting them all though. I did do that once in ohio pulling a huge trailer blowing the horn to all my buddies and a cop drove right by and never said a thing but that was ohio
