Here are some new and old pictures. I am 21 years old and manage 30 accouonts. Everything was mowed with a 60in Exmark (no striping kit.) I'll post pictures of other equipment later. Any advice or criticism is appreciated.

Been there done that way too many times to count. It was especially hard to get used to on my new mower because I stand up so high now. Tree branches that I didn't used to hit I hit now too lol

Took more pictures today. Equipment photos mostly. 91 Dodge 350 (cummins), 14' tandem trailor, 60'' Exmark, Echo Backpack; Stihl Chainsaw, blower and trimmers. The last is my personal truck which is occasionally used. Everything could use a good wash, but work comes first. Again all advice and criticism is appreciated.

Yeah I had never owned an Echo product before and am very pleased so far. I actually walked into a local gun shop on a rainy day and they had that on the shelf still in the box so I jumped on it. The only other backpack I had ever used was a Redmax and the weight difference is what I love.

Well now that I've started this thread I keep finding old pictures of work and equipment. Keep in mind that the work was from last fall so there are some brown spots, but overall they still look pretty good. This is the trailor I started out with. Wish I would have kept it now...oh well. It started out as a tilt, but a buddy of mine built the gate over the winter.

Looks great man! Good stripes, and nice cut with that mower - can't go wrong with an Exmark.

I was thinking the same thing lol. . . Although I've seen much worse...

Lol alright lets set the fence thing straight. The pines behind the fence used to provide privacy for our pool until my dad thought the bottom needed to be trimmed up some. Mom didn't think the "trimming" provided any privacy. Needless to say she had him out there putting up the fence pretty quick. When momma ain't happy...ain't nobody happy lol.

I thought about that too. I've got one I haven't put on the new trailor yet. Have a few more ideas still want to rig up a blower and ladder rack.

I don't have near as much problem with branches now as I used to. I ran Dixie Choppers before I started working for myself and I constantly stayed scratched up. There's nothing like an Exmark once you ride one. Hoping to get a new body Exmark soon...thought I had a walk behind lined up but it got sold two days before I went to pick it up.

I want that dodge! The 12 valves are hard to find!

Both trucks are pretty good. Wish the Dodge was four wheel drive but it gets it done. The Chevy was one of those trucks I had to have when I first got it, but the new has worn off and it just doesn't hold up to a full size truck.

Just picked up a 52" Scag walk behind. I'll post some pics tomorrow. In the mean time does anyone have any suggestions or tips on getting used to running this thing. I've almost got it figured out...just need some pointers I guess. All advice and criticism is appreciated.

Well I've been super busy lately. Since my last post I've done a little adversitising and put the trimmer racks back on the trailor. Tshirts look just like the sign. The phone number is on the bottom, but decided to leave it off of lawnsite. All advice and criticism is appreciated.

It looks like your gas can is about ready to Explode! I'd take a small nail and poke a hole under the handle so it can "breath".

How do you like that echo blower? We got to demo one about 2 months ago. Lots of power.

I really like the Echo so far. I use it more than my handheld actually. The true test will be this fall when the leaves start to fall.

Hey how wide is your trailer? By that I mean the box not wheel well to wheel well. My plan is to pick up a 60in lazer z for next year. But my trailer is 8 x 12 with the box being only 6.4 feet wide. My 48in lazer fits now but its a tight fit and only has a little room on each side. Thanks

No kidding. I wish it was four wheel drive. I had a few problems with it when I bought it, but since then it has been a solid old truck. I'd prolly take another one just like it if I could find it.
