I'm going to post pictures of some of the jobs that I've done and other work related stuff all together in one thread. So anyways here some of the pics. I'll continue adding more pictures as time goes on.

Just lifted my Trailblazer

Its alot taller than the silverado is. It's almost sad for the silverado.:laugh:

my striping kit that I made, aluminum pipe filled with cement to add more weight and push the grass down in the direction the mower is going.

starting to green up

Layed down some more stripes today.

why did you mow that yard? and why is there one green patch?

The side yard and front yard are both Bermuda. They needed to be cut because it was greening up underneith the dormant grass. It was just to take off some of the dormant grass.. The green spot you are talking about is Fescue, which stays green all year long.

Are you not wanting to get a truck? You keeping the blades on that ferris sharp? The ferris mowers like that come with a rubber flap that has always layed really nice stripes on my 36" model.

Try a bigger diameter pipe, you'd be amazed at the difference. When I did my homemade striper for my 21" I used 3" PVC and filled it with concrete. Works great! Have a good season!

Hey, sorry that I haven't been online recently. I've been putting out fliers and what not. I'm running Z71 springs and shocks in the rear from an avalanche. Which gives me about an inch and a half of lift in the rear. I'm running a 2.5" suspension maxx coil spacer in the front. Right now I just can't afford a truck with the economy the way it is. I took some pictures yesterday of a client's yard. I removed the striping kit but it'll be going back on soon.




And a yard from a few weeks back before it had really greened up.

A Little goose that I saved the other day. It got caught in a chain link fence. I pulled him out after being attacked twice by his mother. It looks like Im missing a finger but I'm not. This was before I got a major hair cut.

A few weeks back there was a tornado that touched down in woodstock. I woke up early that morning after a long night of keeping an eye on the radar. I left about 6 am and got there just as the sun came up. I was the first company out there to help clear the roads. I didn't get any paying jobs but I did clear a few trees out of the road for some folks. The big tree companies rolled in around 10 and got all the buisness.

Tornado blew out the back of the house and ripped the ceiling fan out of the house. This picture was featured on the local news.

layed down some stripes in a pretty big yard.

I'll post more pictures as I get them. Let me know what you think.

You know that tire up there on the roof rack is just killing your fuel economy. Do you have any pics of that blazer up to the windows in mud that would be cool.

I use the trailblazer. It's all I can afford right now, but then again it can tow 6600 lbs easily. The I6 in it is a powerhouse, 275hp and 275 ft lbs of torque. The tire was down under the rear which killed my approach angle when offroad. But it doesn't seem to make too much of an impact on my mpg. As far as up to the windows in mud.. No I don't however I do have some muddy pics of it. It's actually a 2wd, but I get around offroad.

This was from my last camping trip, nothing too rough but still had fun.

This was probably one of the muddiest I've gotten the trailblazer.

flooded trails? Not a problem.

up creek beds? Yep, can do that too.

:laugh: I make do with 2wd.
