it's from last year, and I believe I got my lawn down to 3.25 which is challenge, because it needs to be cut every other day to keep it at that height without making a mess. right now it needs to be cut every 2 days otherwise its a mess and that's at 3 3/4

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c169/ryan818/mylawns.jpg

here's one from today the diagonals strips are the most recent, pretty defined for no striper kit imo.

Why are you cutting that first lawn every other day? Is it your own personal lawn or a customers?

Thanks guys, I was out today doing a small clean up took 1.5hrs with 2 guys total and I was on the mower cutting this mess of a yard, which had not been cut this year, and was quite overgrown. and then I dropped the mower and trailer off at home which was on the way to the next job where I had to rip out about 250 sq ft. of pachysandra and got that done in 2.5hrs. and between both jobs I made about 400 not bad for a half day on sunday.

the pachysandra was a pain at first, because I had never torn any of this up before but after the first 3x30 section was done we had pretty good system which included edging the areas that were being removed with a flat shovel, then peeling up the rest with a 12" metal dirt rake, and pulling by hand to roll it up like a carpet, then when the roll was big enough we would take a pry bar about 4ft long made of thick cast iron, and pierced the roll the short way and two people would lift this up into a wheel barrow, and for the rolls that were 2ft tall and too heavy to lift we just left the pierced pry bar in the roll, and attached a short tow strap, to make a u shape then put another pry bar in that and twist it twice so it doesn't move and you have a sturdy handle where three people can drag a huge roll of pachysandra into the woods or whatever.

sorry for the long post, I just figured if someone in the future that has to tear out some pachysandra by hand might want a few tips. I'll take some pics of the lawn tomorrow, which I'm now cutting bi-weekly, because the lady was so happy with the way her lawn looked, and this one is on the way to one lawn I have in tolland and possibly a second all bi-weekly for now.

Yeah pachysandra is not fun to remove and sounds like the way you removed it was a good way, I'll have to try that. How I normally remove it that works well is edging out an area with my edger and then going in with a metal rake and ripping it out. That always seems to work well for me.

How many accounts do you maintain?? If my math is right you would have that mower for almost six years now, and i would think that the deck on that mower would have some discoloring on the leading edge of the deck and the trimming side.

RSK Property Maintenance
05-03-2011, 12:10 PM
you are correct, it is 6 yrs old, now and I have had about 12 accounts, some years a few more, some a few less, but this is my first year technically in business. yah there is some, the paint chipped in a few spots and some discoloring especially because I haven't washed or tried to clean it for about 4yrs, but with some elbow grease everything came off and it looked almost new. but it is in the garage every night. I just didn't have a recent picture of it, I'll take one today.

that's the dump truck I use when its needed for any clean up that require anything hauled away, no I didn't pay for it, yes I do realize how fortunate I am to have something like that to use.

here's the back up truck, I use when my truck, is down for any reason, and the takecuchi tb125 I can use if a job requires it.

Thanks, I think the stripes look a little small, and i'm itching for a new new cheetah, or even a wildcat with a 61" deck, but then I won't be able to fit thru all the gates like I can now, plus even with the 48" deck I can still make pretty good time on my lawns if I have someone else trimming, and I would need to step up to real landscape trailer dual axle 18' big tex, which I want also, but I need to wait some.

ok I have a question, for you guys, I'm not sure, which piece of equipment I should buy, its a toss up between the 3 bag collection system from scag or a billy goat self propelled ground blower, they are about the same price. 2500, and they would both help alot with clean ups. I have a enough clean ups to pay for either one. which one do you guys think would be more effective?

RSK Property Maintenance
05-27-2011, 11:51 PM
Took the new cheetah for a demo today and I think im gonna get one. It was nice to use I cut until 9:30 and I actually was making several passes wide open in high range on this ladys lawn I cut in town. That new velocity plus deck is sick. And the suspension seat makes rough lawns so smooth. And I talked two of customers into having me cut 2x a week so that should cover the new machine. And it stripes better too.

here was a job I did after lunch wednesday. The lady said she called everyone in the landscaping section in our local paper, and everyone she called said they did have the equipment to cut this grass. They all said you need to brush hog or it needs to be done with a string trimmer. well being the smarter guy, I didn't hesistate to do the estimate, after I finished a lawn that was 3 miles away. I gave her a price of 175 which seems on the cheap side, but I told her I would normally do this for 225, and she said go ahead and do it. so I cut it at 5" which is as high as I can go with 48" tiger cub with the little 19hp kawi. after going over 3 times all different patterns it came out excellent. so I lowered the deck to 4.25" and cut it two more times just to make sure no grass was laying over and there were no clumps left. then after I was all done the lady said she never thought this part of her yard could ever look so nice, and gave me an extra 25 dollars. and the whole thing start to finish with trimming took 1hr.

and here's a job i'm doing for one of my lawn customers which is includes but is not limited to, clearing the brush, tearing the bed out, installing a 50'x4' serpentine walkway lined with cobblestones, installing a 50'x2' retaining wall, installing a 30' rock garden on the hill which will be lined with cobblestone, removing about 5 yards of mulch in another bed in the back yard and replacing it with stone, and weeding the patio surrounding the pool area and sweeping in more polymeric sand, also I have transplant plants from around the house for the rock garden.

It is mint, low hours well maintained, tires still look new, it just doesn't seem to cut fast enough anymore, still cuts excellent and stripes well. I've seen alot of used stuff going cheap but im not interested in any of it. Only things I buy used are trucks and plows and that's because I don't enough work yet to justify spending 50,000 on new diesel. The mower I can 100% justify whether it be 6299 like my tiger cub was back in 05 or 11,000 like the cheetah I want now is. I know what I get from just cutting grass 7 months of the year and the cheetah would pay for itself several times every season.

the customer is extremely pleased with the huge transformation so far. before she would never go over to this side of her yard, and the gate at the end of the walkway hadn't been opened in nearly 10 yrs. now she will use it almost everyday in the warmer months.

I didn't....its not mine, but I can pretty much use that and the mini excavator, skid steer, stump grinder, hydroseeder, power seeder and dethatcher whenever I want, now that my dad is back to doing computer programming. the mower, trimmers, gas prunners, back packs, and ford and various hand tools are all mine bought and paid for, the heavy equipment is my dads but he doesn't use it much anymore he's getting out of the business. so I take advantage of it and use his stuff as much as possible which is a huge help, but still I can't keep his machines or dump truck very busy because there's alot of guys around that under bid me.

I would like to have my own dump truck by next year, hopefully a 97 f350 diesel or maybe a newer truck like a 2000-03 7.3 or if things go really well an 08-09 or even brand new dump truck. but that's a very slim chance. the 97 is probably what I'll end up with if i even buy one that soon.

Nice equipment man.

thanks. im pretty excited to use the little wonder....hoping to get a new 2011 big tex 18' 70pi this week. my trailer is kinda too small now, and i have someone who will buy it for 800 as soon as it get my new trailer, then i gotta grab a fisher minute mount plow and im done spending for this year, might get blower racks this year too but that's very minor, but the trailer will help with clean ups alot, much nicer to load leaves onto then the dump truck.

no trailer for me this year, but with snow coming up on us shortly, I am considering buying another 97 f350 7.3 diesel 4x4. The truck was a cab and chassis dually, one owner, well maintained, includes fisher 9ft minute mount plow which has been sand blasted and repainted, it has 160,000 on it, fair condition, it has a 9ft dumping flat bed that currently doesn't dump due to needing a new motor, which is relatively cheap. (3-400) and 2 new front tires and the truck has the xl package, and needs to have the glowplugs cycled twice to start normally otherwise it cranks for an extra 5 or 6 seconds
anyways I can get the truck for 3600 which I figure is like getting the plow for 2,000 and the truck for 1600, and I can put the plow on my other f350 if something happens to my other truck, and If few things go my way, I should have 5-8 smaller commercial lots for plowing like around $150-300 per push per lot plus another 10-15 driveways, so I figured a back up truck wouldn't be a bad idea....especially at this price. what do you guys think?

I'm deffinetly buying that other truck, I need a back up for plowing, and next year I plan to buy a leaf vac. and make it my leaf truck since it dumps. I'd like to have 30-40 lawns and few apartment complexes so im at 4 days of mowing for next season, and 20-30 driveways for this winter and 5-6 smaller commercial lots for plowing. so far I'm at 15 and I get a call or two a day for plowing and get 99%. I have 2 people who needed a few days to talk to their spouse about having me do snow removal, and they will be getting calls shortly.

looks like that truck will hold alot of leaves. I would take the toolbox off and mount the leaf loader behind the cab and have the hose coming out to the passenger side. That way you dont always have to put the trailer on that truck.

Ya it does, I haven't loaded it with a leaf Vac yet, but loading by hand it holds a lot. And as far as the toolbox goes its perfect, holds chain saws all my gas cans, small rakes its worth it to keep it and just tow a trailer

Oh forget to add I will be getting my number on the chute asap. It starts in a less than a full crank. And flat out runs awesome.
The number will be huge. It will cover both sides of the chute top to bottom. Not sure how much chipping is left around me from this storm but there will be more storms and more trees will drop. Now here's the fun part guess how much I paid for this chipper? And yes it was on craigslist. This one was right in Tolland only a few towns over

I'm looking to buy one this spring as I've gotten way more into trees and I climb a lot not ... when I do rent one it depresses me that what would usually take up 20cu yrds now fits in a pick up bed ... Great investment ... some guys up here charge $160 an hr to run a chipper :dizzy:

RSK Property Maintenance
11-19-2011, 07:13 PM
160 an hr is cheap, must be slow or giving friends/family a break. I get anywhere from 250-750 an hr. Chipping depends on the customer and the job and if I have anyone helping me or not. But for friends and family ill charge 150hr or less. And I usually charge by the job and those figures are what most usually end up at.

Also slammed out a drainage job, chipping and stump grinding job for 3850, not bad for under an 8hr day with 4 guys

Is that a lever just under the seat of the mower? To adjust the seat or something?

Also, what made you get the cheetah?

Also, what made you get the cheetah?

the small yellow lever directly under the seat is to adjust the seat forward and backwards. the big lever with the black knob is to adjust the suspension softer or stiffer. and I decided to go with a cheetah, because i demoed one two or three years ago when they first came out and fell in love with how much more comfortable it was then my tiger cub and how much faster it was, a. because it has a 61 deck, and b. because it goes 12mph in low range and 16mph in high range, and yes i make passes at wide open in both ranges. 12mph with sharp blades leaves a good cut, 16mph with sharp blades will still leave a nice cut, just has to be very smooth to go that fast and it has to be a low cut but its very nice being able to hold 15 gallons between two tanks plus the 34hp kohler i ordered with the mower is great, air cooled and lots of power.

Guarenteed to pick up more work!

What does RSK stand for?

yeah, I'm trying to get enough accounts for 2 full days of mowing with the 61" cheetah i have now and I'd like to add a 72" turf tiger next spring, or a 72" cheetah if they come out with a bagger for it by then. I think with the the two mowers i mentioned 50-60 accounts could be done in two days or maybe half of another day. i want at least 2500 a week in mowing so when things get slow i still have something coming in. but RSK is my initials Ryan Scott Krajewski, i just thought Rsk property maintenance sounded pretty good so i went with it. hopefully, I'll do 100,000 flyers if that's what it takes to get the amount of work I want next year, but i'm pretty sure 50,000 or less will get me 30-40 more accounts which probably is too many to gain in one year, but i want it now. not in 3 years. i have bigger and better goals in 3 years.

Wow okay, it might be a bit of a change with all the extra work. What are those bigger better goals?

i'm hoping for a change with the extra work, i wouldn't mind work 4-5 days a week, i already know if i have 50-60 weekly lawn customers, some of them will have me do shrub pruning, mulching, weeding, and other maintenance, so really by getting the lawns i'll probably go up to 4-5 days a week of work and be able to hire my first employee if not 2 hopefully. i plan to open up to 3 dunkin donuts, or some type of franchise where i don't have to be apart of it, other then setting it up and stopping by and checking on things once a month, and probably open up another business, doing what, that i don't know yet, but i want more. i would like to get my pilots license, pay a house off in 3 years that i'm going to hopefully buy next fall.

if i get the commercial one it will be awesome, to say i do something of that size at 24yrs old, and i can almost guarantee once these people see i do good work, the word will spread among other condos in the area, i will get more of them and on a bigger scale which is what i want, and goal of 2500 per week from mowing alone will be broken pretty quick, and another new machine will be bought and paid for next spring if this works out, this would without a doubt give me the boost i need, not too mention this place has overgrowth issues on the back side of the property, and they need tree work done.

I don't wanna take the extra minute to grab my phone from my truck and take a picture or two of the what i'm doing and post it on here. monday I was on fire, got 4 clean ups in with just me and 1 other person. all the leaves had to go to the curb. Today me and 2 other people were only able to blow out 3 clean ups, but still close to the same dollar amount. either way this month will be a nice boost $$$$$ especially with the snow storm we got, once I do the billing for that.

Nice set up and work.

Thanks I do like my 1996 f350 with a 7.3 turbo diesel with 271,000 miles and all original body panels even though it was used as plow truck with a 2 yard sander for its whole life, and before me it used to tow a 35ft fishing boat and had crab cages loaded to the top of the cab 3x a week. :weightlifter: a lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone into getting this setup. heck i missed out on pretty much all of my teenage years to get to where I am today. I can't even count the number of years I didn't even celebrate my birthday and just worked the day before, the day of and the day after. Instead of getting high, or drunk like 90% of the kids I went to school with did for every one of their teenage birthdays. It's starting to pay off, I should really see the benefits next year when I buy a house on my own with no help, and hopefully a really nice car in cash.

It does sound like it's paying off. I wish I had the same outlook on life when I was your age, I am 33 and it's hard trying to make up for lost time.

I commend you. I am the same way. Landscaping got me away from trouble. Drugs, alcohol and partying was in everyones blood in highschool. Most of my buddies got out of high school lucky to have a 3.0 gpa(decent) and not really taking anything out of school. They went to college and half of them did horrible the first year because classes were tough and partying was too important to them.

I came out of highschool with a 4.2 gpa and a business with equipment valued at about 60,000 dollars liquidated and customers to make a well established company happy. I never have worked on my birthday and always had my guys work or rescheduled work, but i did work long days after class in highschool, in the summer and early mornings in the winter. Sure,I missed out on a lot,but its worth it now. My friends will be graduating in a year and a half with degrees, and no job opportunities (or not many) and i will have a degree and a business to support me and my (hopefully) future wife.

Good luck RSK. Work always looks good and be proud of who you are, not what you missed out on. You have your whole life to enjoy and play with all your toys you can buy with all the money you will be making, and have fun with your friends and family.

I really know how yall feel. I'm still in high school. Drugs and partying is all everybody talks about these days. Lets just say that they are distant friends now not enemies. It sucks seeing your friends pissing their life away but they made the decsion. Its a battle everyday. But I'm not that kind of guy. I want to do something great with my life not screw it up.

Sorry to get all personal on you, But I felt like I needed to speak up.

I have the same outlook as you guys and it pays off to be young and focused. I am a big fan of your truck I've always wanted one just like it.

Nice setup/work, It's good to see when all the hard work pays off and you can sit back and look at what you've accomplished!! I think the last birthday I didn't work was when I was 9? Not really that important of a day, I do however work half days for both of my boys' birthdays. Keep plugging at it and good things will happen.

Thank you for compliments and encouragement. It definitely does. Remeber when i had my 48" tiger cub, no bagger, a tilt trailer with no working lights, bald tires and no brakes and now my setup is pretty legit, still need to get my trimmer racks on and blower racks but i'm not sure if i want to keep my 16' trailer or go up to 18' big tex 70pi which can hold more weight or maybe even 10pi which has 5000lb axles for next year.

Why do you need a bigger trailer? Do you need more room or need to haul more weight?

More weight, and more room, right now my cheetah with the bagger and little wonder is kinda full. Depending on what happens next year i may add another cheetah. Defintely going to sell my little wonder for a hurricane 314 in the summer.

We bought a 20' Pequea deckover because of the space problem, a 72" deck with the blower on the side of the deck is wider that the ID of our 16' utility trailer. The deckover is great, plenty of room and it's rated for 9,999 GVW.
